The console version will arrive on March 10 and the PC version of Heists will arrive on April 14, as the PC version has seen a delay.

“We know it’s been a wait, and appreciate your patience,” said Rockstar. “Heists will bring a brand new 4-player cooperative gameplay experience to GTA Online, giving players the chance to team up to pull off a string of intense, multi-part raids and robberies across Los Santos and Blaine County.

“Over the next couple of weeks, we will have more information about the launch of Heists and about other new features that we will release with it.”

GTA 5 for PC will be arriving on April 14 at retail and as a digital download. The PC version was originally slated for a January 27 release before seeing its first delay to March 24.

Rockstar said the delay was “to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC.”

Those who pre-ordered the game on PC will be handed an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online as compensation for the wait.

GTA Online’s Heists was expected sometime before GTA 5 was released on PC, and the firm detailed what to expect from the feature back in December.

Yesterday, leaked art showed new gear, vehicles and weapons players.
