‘Grand Theft Auto 5’ may be heading to PC in early 2014, but Rockstar remains quiet

Grand Theft Auto 5 Stuff you should try 3

According to sources speaking to Eurogamer, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released on PC in early 2014. The sources claim that the PC release will happen at some point during the first quarter, but could not be more specific beyond that.

So far, neither Rockstar nor Take Two have announced any plans to bring GTAV to the PC at all. Rockstar did eventually release GTAIV on PC nearly eight months after its console release, and L.A. Noire  similarly had a delayed PC launch. 2012’s Max Payne 3 was released for both console and PC (within two weeks), but Red Dead Redemption never appeared on any systems other than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so a GTAV version on PC was never guaranteed. So far no other sources have been able to confirm a PC release either. 

GTAV has become a juggernaut, setting seven separate world records since its release. Expanding its reach would seem like a logical step, but at the same time the game is already such a massive hit that it isn’t like the developer or publisher need to release it on PC. Still, the demand is certainly there, as evidenced by the nearly 600,000 people that have signed a petition with Change.org to bring the game to PC.

Until Rockstar or Take Two are willing to confirm this though, we are left with this statement from Rockstar’s “Asked and Answered” section the dev used as a reply when Eurogamer sought a comment from it:

“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 wrote. “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.”
