Hope springs eternal–in this case, the hope of thousands of fans that GTA V will be brought to the PC. Rumors abound, and listings pop up from time to time. This time, it’s a digital listing. Specifically, Steam keys are up for sale.
Simplycdkeys even has a nice picture of the box art on the product page, and it claims the game will be released on September 19, 2014. It explains how to activate the product on Steam and everything, although you won’t receive your key until 24 hours before the release day.
We’ve seen so many of these by now, it’s hard to take this one more seriously than just a tiny rumor. On the other hand, the GTA series always winds up on the PC, so it should be just a matter of time.
We’ll keep you updated.
It’s another rumor from a retailer, but this one has more credibility than most, because it’s more than just a listing for GTA V on the PC, Xbox One, or PS4 found on a retailer’s website. The German retailer Saturn.de Tweeted:
Translated, that means:
Because I was just asked: the release of #GTAV for PC and XBOX one PS4 is expected for June. #rumors #abgeNICKt
Of course, many false rumors have come out before, so don’t set too much stock in this. Maybe all the rumors alone will convince Rockstar to make an official announcement.
Yes, it’s another GTA V PC rumor. At this point, we really wish Rockstar would just say one way or another if the game is coming to the PC or not.
The latest store to list the game for preorder is Simplycdkeys.com. This online retailer claims GTA V will be released for the PC on September 14.
As always with these sorts of rumors, take this report with a pinch of salt, but don’t lose hope. One of these days, it may be true. We’ll keep you updated.
We’ve been getting a lot of non-answers and evasions from Take-Two and Rockstar on the topic of GTA V being ported to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but Strauss Zelnick, Take-Two’s CEO, has at least given some insight on what will make up their minds.
According to Zelnick (who spoke to MCVUK), Take-Two will release their games on any system, as long as that system has players who want those games, saying “If that is where consumers are, absolutely [we will release our games on it]“. He also drew a distinction between releasing a game on a new system to “drive [the consumers] there” versus seeing that a system has consumers for the game and then releasing it.
With all the excitement and anticipation for a PC release of GTA V, we’re pretty sure the consumers are there, but have Take-Two and Rockstar realized this? What do you think?
Retailers continue to accept preorders for the as-yet-unannounced PC version of GTA V, and UK retailers are the next to join the list. Gamereactor received word from a source in High Street retail that customers will be able to preorder the game from them soon.
We previously told you that the Nordic retailer Elgiganten was preparing to take GTA V PC preorders, but that has been postponed. However, Czech retailer SuperGamer has taken it a step further than any of the others. They have GTA V listed for PC with a release date of June 13.
Rockstar still hasn’t said a word, but with the way the rumors keep stacking up, we’re starting to believe GTA V is on its way to PC. Could it be coming this summer, as SuperGamer reports? We’ll keep you updated.
Rockstar still hasn’t told anyone if GTA V is on its way to PC, Xbox One, and PS4, even though retailers have begun to list it as available for preorder. These retail listings began with Amazon France and Amazon Germany, which caused a flurry of speculation due to Amazon’s general reliability.
In fact, a PC and next-gen GTA V wasn’t the first game to appear on these sites before its official announcement—Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition appeared on Amazon Germany before it was official, and that turned out to be true.
Now, we aren’t conspiracy theorists, but it would be a great way to build hype for a release by leaking information like that. When Edge asked Ketu Patel, the Amazon UK Category Leader of Video-Games and Software, however, he replied in no uncertain terms that it was an accident and that they would never do such a thing intentionally.
Nevertheless, even if the accidental listings aren’t marketing ploys, we’re still holding out hope for GTA V’s release on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
An games retailer in the Czech Republic, SuperGamer.cz, has started taking pre-orders for GTA V on the Playstation, Xbox One and also the PC. Does this mean a next-gen/PC announcement is imminent?
You can check out the listing for the game here along with its stated release date of June 13 this year. Well, at least they say it will arrive for PS4 and PC on June 13, the Xbox One page for the game doesn’t have a date specified, for whatever reason.
We’ve already taken a quick poll of gamer’s reactions to this news and most are pretty happy that GTA V *seems* to be coming to the next-generation and of course PC. We’ve long said that it’s a no brainer for Rockstar and just a matter of when. Afterall, they could sell millions of copies of the same game that has been out for a fair amount of time now on the PS3 and Xbox 360. The bean counters will be licking their lips!
As for whether June 13 is indeed the actual release date, or the games are coming to Xbox One/PS4/PC at all, we can’t say for sure without the official word from Rockstar. So this one is staying a rumor for now…
Rockstar has yet to make any official announcement about GTA V coming to PC, but the rumors, leaks and supposed “confirmations” just keep coming. After several Amazon sites listed a PC version for preorder and other signs of a PC port appeared, we’ve now been told that Swedish gamers will be able to preorder the game from Elgiganten starting on Friday.
We’re pretty skeptical at the moment, but the manager of an Elgiganten retail store in Sweden apparently advised website GameReactor.eu that this coming Friday GTA V will be preorderable. Whether this manager can be believed is another story, but anyway…
If true, it’s excellent news for fans, as many people have wanted the game on PC for quite some time now. It would be nice to get some sort of announcement/information from Rockstar on the moment however, and GameReactor.eu has reached out to the maker of GTA 5 for comment (we aren’t holding our breath for a response).
More details on a potential PC release, as well as a next-gen version, would be met with much excitement we’re sure! GTA5Cheats will keep you updated as always.
Rumors of Grand Theft Auto V’s impending release on the PC and next-gen consoles have been flying, and now research analysts have contributed more fuel—along with another interesting prediction.
Baird Equity just released their new research report, “2014 Video Game Industry Predictions and Q4 Results Preview,” and in it they state their belief that Rockstar will release not only a PC/next-gen version of GTA V, but also a sequel to the 2010 smash hit Red Dead Redemption. Baird believes that both games should be out in 2014.
There still has not been official confirmation of GTA V for PC, but with multiple Amazon sites listing it, it feels like a given. Baird Equity’s reasoning also includes the increased revenue and visibility such a release would bring for Rockstar.
The Red Dead Redemption 2, prediction, however, was not previously rumored. Initial fan reaction has been skeptical.
Rumors are rampant that Rockstar plans to release an official PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, something many players want. Although such rumors have existed for quite some time, they received a dose of credibility when Amazon France listed the game for preorders. Now, Amazon Germany has done the same.
The listing on the French site seems to have been removed, but the German site still has it up. Amazon is known for reliable information, so these events are a good sign that a PC release is really on the way.
While fans await GTA V on PC, there is also much talk about versions for the PS4 and Xbox One. The game, which released on September 17 with an online game following on October 1, is currently available only for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Rockstar has yet to make an official statement.
