By now, you probably know GTA V will be released later this year for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. There still isn’t an official release date. The last rumor we heard placed it on October 28 for all three versions. Now, a new rumor suggests at least the PC version of GTA V will come out on November 14.
This morning, a Danish retailer called Coolshop listed a release date of November 14, 2014 for GTA V. It has since been changed to the placeholder date of December 31, but PC Gamer got a screenshot beforehand.
Some fans are disappointed at the thought of such a late release date, but it’s probably better than if it joins the huge lineup set to release this October. This is still just a rumor, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything official.
Last week, GTA V was officially announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We got to see a trailer and some comparison screenshots, but thanks to DigitalFoundry, we can get an even better look at the extent of the visual changes.
This video re-creates the announcement trailer with footage from the PS3 version of the game, and places it beside the PS4 trailer for a comparison. Check it out.
As you can see, the changes go beyond mere polish. The wildlife and more dynamic environments are two aspects that really stand out. What do you think?
We know GTA V will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime this fall, but no official release date was given with the announcement. However, some users caught a glimpse of a potential release date on Amazon.
Yesterday, Amazon listed the games with a release date of October 28, 2014, although the date has since been replaced with the generic placeholder date of December 31. October 28 would make a lot of sense, as it’s in the fall and on a Tuesday. Still, consider this a rumor until the date is made official.
The retailer listings also let us know that the game will cost $59.99. Are you planning to get GTA V for the PS4/X1/PC?
It’s taken a long time and a lot of rumors to reach this point, but at last we can discuss the official release of GTA V on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. At Sony’s E3 press conference last night, it was finally announced. Check out the trailer to see what it will look like on a more powerful set of systems.
As you can see, there is more to the visual appeal of this new version than just shinier graphics. More details and depth allow for more vivid and realistic environments, and there will be new animals (so far fans have discovered cats, pugs, and hammerhead sharks), weather effects, and more. The PC version of GTA V will include a video editor.
GTA Online is also a part of this enhanced experience, and will have new weapons, properties, vehicles, jobs, and customizations. Best of all, if you’ve already played GTA Online on the PS3 or Xbox 360, you can transfer your data to one of the new versions.
We’ve spent a long time waiting for the announcement that GTA V will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and/or PC. There have been plenty of rumors and random retail listings, but nothing concrete. Well, if Rockstar is going to announce it, there’s a pretty good chance it’ll be at E3.
Rockstar doesn’t usually go to E3, but as pointed out by gaming site Rockstarturk, Take-Two Interactive is going to be there. Now, Take-Two is responsible for many more series besides Grand Theft Auto, but don’t forget all the rumors that place a PS4/X1/PC release in the middle of June. Some even marked out June 13 as the release date, and what would be more dramatic than for Take-Two to announce that the game is not only on its way, but will be available immediately after E3?
Then there’s the mysterious game Rockstar will release for the PS4 and Xbox One before March 2015.
We have just over two weeks to wait until E3. If GTA V isn’t announced for more systems then, we’ll be back to the waiting game.
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.
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:
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.
