Along with the all these PC updates, they also gave a brief update on Grand Theft Auto Online: Heists. Rockstar has said that it will arrive on consoles a few weeks before the PC release.

Grand Theft Auto V for PC will launch on March 24th.

My Opinion:

I don’t mind one bit that it got delayed. After the shoddy launches of a few major titles late last year, people should be happy that Rockstar cares enough to make sure to release a version of Grand Theft Auto V that will surpass the console versions in every way. With that said, please keep in mind that Heists may not go as smoothly.
