There’s been a fair bit of discussion lately on the platforms that GTA 5 is set to be released on. Rockstar has been copping a fair bit of flack for refusing to talk about a potential PC version of the game (which is obviously coming anyway), nor a Wii U or other next-generation version. That said however, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take Two, was a little more forthcoming during a recent investor call when in response to a question about GTA V potentially spanning two console generations (ie both Xbox 360/PS3 and the next Xbox/PS4) he said:
There is not one gamer who’s going to sit it out on GTA V hoping there’s something down the road that’s better.
Zelnick followed that up by saying that TTWO is “extremely well-positioned” to develop on next-gen hardware.
I mean, let’s be honest, they’re not gonna release it on the Xbox 360 and PS3 right at the very end of those system’s life cycles and then refuse a next-gen or PC release are they? Rockstar are simply concerned about cannibalizing sales on the 360 and PS3 if they do announce it for any other platform!
In other news, there is a “release GTA 5 on PC” petition on change.org that has over 153,000 signatures at the time of this post. If you’re that concerned about Grand Theft Auto 5 making it to the PC, then you may as well sign.
