Sources: Grand Theft Auto 5 out on PC early 2014

 

Rockstar will release a PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 in 2014, Eurogamer understands.

 

Multiple industry sources have indicated the open world game, currently available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, will come out on PC in the first quarter of 2014.

 

The release plan mirrors that used for Grand Theft Auto 4, which released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 29th April 2008 before launching on PC in December 2008.

 

A PC release should come as no surprise. In August GPU maker Nvidia's senior director of investor relations Chris Evenden mentioned a PC version of GTA5 during a financial call.

 

"[PC] gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Assassin's Creed 4," he said.

 

After Evenden's quotes were picked up by press, Nvidia issued Eurogamer a statement saying they were made in error.

 

"Nvidia does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability," a spokesperson said. "We deeply regret the error."

 

When approached for comment, Rockstar pointed us to an "Asked & Answered" session published on the company's Newswire website in July.

 

"The only versions of the game that we have announced are for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which are set for a September 17th worldwide release," Rockstar said at the time. "We don't have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now."

 

Nearly 600,000 people have signed a Change.org petition calling on Rockstar to release GTA5 on PC. They will get their wish.

I assume GTA Online wasn't a part of that statement.

must buy for me on day 1 (if i have time to spend at least 10-20 hours on it in the first week)

i have access to PS3, but i really dont feel like playing such game without the high end graphics!!!

i hope the port is not lousy and will allow for best possible visuals on my gaming pc,

 

 

i was not too impressed with the whole GTA IV...  but i have hope.

With all the issues present on the consoles, the late release is a blessing in disguise.

GTA IV still doesn't work properly on my pc (core i7) so I have little hope for this one, the delay is disappointing though

Yeah tbh the hypes gone for me too, was gonna wait for the PC version then a cheap xbox version but now I've lost all interest in it completely, they've shot themselves in the foot.

No doubt they'll blame it on piracy though!

I was hyped to play it to the point that I even considered buying XBOX360 for it. The hype and need went away after I watched a few streams of gameplay.

When it's released for PC, I'll wait for it to hit the 5 bucks price point with all the DLCs included.

I think if it does hit PC then. They'll be a XB1 and PS4 version alongside it.

 

Even if it doesn't come out then. GTAV will be released on PC.
