Will online be available when the game is first released?

It was GTA V bro. And yes, they will likely do it again.

The first main reason is that Rockstar Games’ believes the single player component is more important and it wants to get people playing that single player before they jump into the multi player.

“I think the well executed multiplayer game clearly attracts a big audience, but it doesn’t attract as big an audience as in a single player game, It just doesn’t do that yet….Not everybody, not even with Call of Duty, not everyone is playing the multiplayer, there’s a huge audience for people who love single-player adventures.”

The second reason behind the delay was that Rockstar Games simply didn’t feel they could complete both the single and multi player components in time for the same release date. Hence they decided to release the more important single player first and have the multi player come after.

“On the practical reasons it was simply on the scale of: ‘Why not simply get these two enormous things done completely at the same time, finished completely seamlessly and in a box? Well, because its nearly impossible. To make games on this scale is very, very hard and anyone you speak to who works on those big games will, if they’re honest, admit that there are a lot of moving parts. So, we were concerned that trying to finish them both for the same day would lead to a compromise in quality. On a practical level, it was very important that they each get a period when they can be really focused on by large numbers of the team to iron out as many problems as possible.”

I can't see why they wouldn't do it again simply based on what they said above there. They want the main focus to be on the story and to give people time to enjoy that first. I can't blame them and I prefer it this way anyways as I would only be playing the campaign at first.

It think it depends on when it gets released. I think it is ideal to have both ready to go out the gate simply because some people will only be buying it to play online with friends. Waste of a game? Sure, but you have to consider those kinds of gamers.

I didn't think of this. I guess it is down to them. Based on what they said with GTA I can see them making us wait but they may do thins one differently.

They will have a delay. Be it a few days, a week, or a few weeks. They want people to have time to really enjoy the campaign and not rush through it to get online. People who plan on playing it online only can just buy it when that is available. No big deal.

Knowing Rockstar they will slowly leak it to us over the span of several months until we get to a point where we want to walk away from the game and the franchise all together and THEN they will release it....

Here I am about 2 months later still feeling the same way only they hardly have given us any news on the game let alone the online portion. So annoying. I did read them mentioning having a period where online will not be available so there is that.

This basically tells us they will do it again but no word on how long, we will likely know just before the game is released or maybe a day or two after.
