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.
In the past 24 hours someone casually logged into the GTAForums and posted the screenshot you can see below. It’s taken from Grand Theft Auto V and has a resolution of 1080p… 1080p you say? That’s impossible – the maximum resolution of the current version of the game (on Xbox 360 and PS3) is only 720p… Well not if this screenshot is taken from the PC version.
We won’t go over the dozens of rumors concerning a PC version of GTA 5 right now. Instead you can browse all the stories yourself in our archives. And this latest “rumor”, or more appropriately “piece of evidence”, regarding the existence of a PC version would have been pretty strong, had it not been literally just debunked and proven false.
As user “Tuskin38″ on the GTAForums discovered, the exact same user that uploaded this new image “KyleN” has also posted previous images that he “suggested” were from a PC version of GTA V and that were subsequently proven fake too. You can check those shots out here.
So while this latest piece of news might have generated a bit of hype for a short but exciting time (heck, we want GTA V on PC too!) it’s ultimately been proven just another piece of false information. In the meantime we can only wait and hope…
Fans of Grand Theft Auto V have been clamoring for a PC version for quite some time. Rumors of its release have circulated for months, and modders have been working on their own unofficial versions, while Rockstar has remained silent on the matter. Recently, the rumors have begun to support one another, and now it might be safe to say they are more than just rumors…
The French site for Amazon has GTA V on PC available for preorders. Amazon is a huge online retailer and is normally very reliable, so this should be a sign that the official game is on its way. On the other hand, some fans claim it has been listed on the site for a long time (in fact we can recall rumors of this, but can’t locate the records…).
Either way, if Amazon is allowing players to preorder the game, it sounds like good news for fans. Most reactions to the news have been optimistic – it’s now up to Rockstar to make an official announcement one way or another. Do you think they will or is this just another “mistake” in a long-line of similar occurrences for GTA V on PC?
