Grand Theft Auto Online will roll out on October 2 in Australia, Rockstar has confirmed.
Update: Rockstar has announced that the GTA 5 title update - which introduces the multiplayer component of the title - will be available to download "starting around" 9PM Eastern Australian time today, October 1. Check out the most up-to-date GTA Online information here.
While Australia sometimes enjoys early access to games due to the international date line, Rockstar has confirmed with CVG that the October 1 roll out for GTA Online applies to America's time zone. This means Australians won't get the game until October 2.
Specific launch times for that date will be detailed soon.
Rockstar released new details on GTA Online last week, including specific information on micro-transactions and the in-game economy.
The company also warned that teething problems are likely when the online component is rolled out.
"There will be the typical growing pains for an online game, including but not limited to crashes, glitches, crazy bugs, gameplay modes and mechanics that need re-balancing and other surprises," a Rockstar representative wrote.
