When the equal parts excellent and troublesome Grand Theft Auto V was released in the fall of 2013 on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, it came with the promise of more to come; specifically, a Heist mode for the the game’s Grand Theft Auto Online component, and a PC version. In the year and a half since then, we’ve gotten the game updated for current-gen systems and a fantastic new first-person camera. Those were great! But Heists and a PC GTA V remained conspicuously absent and frequently delayed. 

According to a press release sent out by GTA V developer Rockstar Games, the wait is almost over. 

Rockstar has announced that Heists for GTA Online—which give “players the chance to team up to pull off a string of intense, multi-part raids and robberies across Los Santos and Blaine County”—will finally go live on March 10. 

Meanwhile, the PC version of GTA V has been delayed yet again until April 14, 2015. (Rockstar originally announced the game would be out in the fall of 2014 alongside the current-gen rerelease.) 

“Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed 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,” Rockstar wrote in a statement. 

For those who have been holding out for that PC version, the studio promises that it will be “the most technically advanced version yet,” and will come with a new Rockstar Editor for “recording, staging, and editing original custom videos,” which sounds pretty cool…if it doesn’t get delayed again.
