Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be. Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice we make only when we know it is in the best interests of the game and our fans. Thanks everyone for your understanding and we assure you these few extra weeks will be worth it when the game does arrive in March.
They went on to say that GTA Online for PC will launch with the game (including heists) and support up to 30 players. Rockstar has also given us 6 new screenshots at 4k resolution (3840x2160):
Additional details about the PC version include that the game will run at 1080p and 60fps with up to 4K resolution and support for up to triple monitor configurations, as well as NVidia 3D Vision for up to triple monitor setups.

Below are answers to questions straight from Rockstar Games:
“Are you only doing first person games now? I have always loved Rockstar Games partly because they are third person games.” – Allen (via Mouthoff)
Absolutely not! We are excited by the response to our first effort at a first person experience, but remain committed to third person games and may or may not use first person as a camera option in the future. We do like to, whenever possible, give people options so they can play a game the way they like.
“To the people at Rockstar Games, could you guys please bring First Person to PS3 / Xbox 360?” – Brandon (via Mouthoff)
“Why just have First Person on next-generation, why not on the other consoles? Could [you] add it to PS3 and Xbox  please?” - @DawsonSunderlan
As we’d mentioned in our recent interview with IGN, First Person Mode is a new feature that is only technically possible for us to add to the game with the expanded memory that the new generation platforms provide. There are thousands of new animations added to the game to facilitate First Person Mode, which would have been impossible to do on the previous generation of consoles without seriously compromising the game in some other capacity.
“What is the point of Shark Cards, apart from to make you greedy bastards lots of money?” – Tim (via Mouthoff)
The reason we included optional in-game currency in Grand Theft Auto Online, rather than directly selling DLC, was because it was the only way that we could distribute DLC without dividing the player base each time we brought out a new content pack, which would destroy the online community very quickly by splitting players up. Thanks to Shark Cards, we have been able to give away every piece of DLC so far for free in order to keep the community whole and give people options as to whether they want to earn new content by playing the game, buy new content with Shark Cards or simply don’t get new content and still keep playing the game.

GTA Online Heists are coming early in 2015 - check out the new trailer for the four-player co-op mode for Grand Theft Auto Online (above) that allows players to plan, prepare and execute multi-tiered Heists across Los Santos and Blaine County. These will require tight communication and coordination, with players taking on specified roles at each point to accomplish multiple objectives on the way to each Heist’s epic finale. Featuring new gameplay, new vehicles, new weapons, new clothing and much more.
Head over to IGN for an in-depth interview that details exactly how Heists will work... and why they’ve taken a little more time than originally expected.

More than just a texture overhaul, the new version of GTA V goes to extreme detail and also offers revamped animations to coincide with the new first person view that lets you experience Los Santos and Blaine County from the eyes of your character. When you're ready to break free of the story, head online and take part in 30-player mayhem in the jobs you know or completely new ones for the new generation. It may be the game you know, but there's a whole lot more to see and do - especially for returning players.
Reminder for PC players: The PC version will release on January 27th. Mark your calendars!

With the advent of First Person Mode, 30-player Online support and other new features made possible by the new systems, your feedback, help and guidance is more important than ever to help Rockstar make the game experience all it can be. Whether it's letting them know what you like and what you don't like about the new features, reporting any technical issues you may experience during the early days of GTA Online's next generation launch, or any other suggestions for improvements and tweaks whatsoever - they need your continued help, and, maybe, just a little patience if there are any teething problems around the launch on the new systems. They have, of course, tested the game extensively but there is no way their several hundred testers can be quite as comprehensive as millions of players! Please bear with them should any issues arise - they will be working hard to fix any problems that arise, and generally ensure this launch is as smooth as possible.
To help aid on that front, Rockstar wants to continue to encourage all players to utilize the following communication channels:
- The dedicated Rockstar Games Support website for help with any and all technical issues that may arise. You can browse the knowledge base of known GTAV and GTA Online issues and subscribe to articles there to get automatic updates of when they’re addressed. And if your issue does not appear as an existing knowledge base item, you can also always create a new ticket to get help.
- The GTAOnline@rockstargames.com official player feedback inbox. Over the past year, with each and every Update released for GTA Online were tons of positive changes made as a direct result of player feedback that the development team consulted constantly for input. From specific content added to the game to countless enhancements such as improvements to GTA Online’s RP and GTA$ payouts, insurance system, passive mode, Creator features, damage system – and so much more were all made to the game thanks to your very helpful suggestions.
Also expect a Title Update to be made available for download on both PS4 and Xbox One by this Monday that will include some last tweaks and optimization fixes for game day. In order to experience the game properly, please make sure you install this Update before playing (like all Title Updates, it will be applied automatically as long as you are connected to the internet).
Rockstar will be looking closely at your feedback from the initial launch days on the new platforms to help inform other future dynamic tuning changes and Title Updates as always. And get ready for continuing free content Updates for Grand Theft Auto Online, including the highly-anticipated launch of Online Heists (which, to be absolutely clear, will be available for all four consoles to enjoy).
Beyond that, here’s just a few things to get excited for in Grand Theft Auto Online for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One starting next week:
Up to 30 Player Mayhem
Whether it’s mass marauding in Freemode or lining up a proper Crew convoy for an epic GTA Race – there will now be the opportunity for nearly double the player action that was possible on the PS3 and 360.
The Next Generation Character Creator
Give your GTA Online player a dramatic makeover thanks to the new customization options that the overhauled character creator offers. Create a brand new character from scratch or take your current guy or gal for a bit of cosmetic surgery in true Los Santos fashion.
The GTA Online First Person Experience
IGN revealed the first person experience for GTAV last week, a feature that will be available in both Story Mode and GTA Online allowing you to seamlessly switch between first and third person perspectives while playing. Fancy trying your favorite Team Deathmatch as a first person shooter – or weaving through the turbines at the RON wind farm with a view from the cockpit of your Lazer in glorious 1080p? That’s just scratching the surface of the possibilities that the first person experience will add to the gameplay of GTA Online.
Double the Props in the Creator Tool
To date, the amazing minds who’ve put the Creator Tool to work are responsible for nearly 10 million original custom Deathmatches, Races, Captures and Last Team Standing Jobs. Amongst those are some truly epic experiences including some masterfully imaginative metagames that we never could have envisioned. Now with the possibilities of prop placement doubled, you’ll be able to build enormous arena-style Deathmatches for concentrated chaos, or maze-based Land Races requiring extreme guile, or stack shipping containers around Air Race checkpoints to create large scale obstacle courses for GTA Online stunt pilots! With double the props and up to 30 players, Rockstar can’t wait to see the ways in which the incredible Creator community will assuredly concoct brilliant gameplay magic on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
That's all for now. Look for more last-minute info soon and hit up the forums!
