We understand your skepticism at the title of this article, because rumors of Grand Theft Auto V coming to PC and next-gen consoles keep circulating without anything coming of them. This time, while we still don’t have official confirmation of anything, we’ve got a little more than a store listing the game for preorder.
It started that way—a Portuguese store called Worten listed GTA V for PS4 for sale. When questioned about it, the store’s representative said it isn’t a mistake. Customers can preorder a PS4 copy of GTA V from them, although there is no known release date. SuperGamer Czech, on the other hand, has GTA V preorders available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and believes they will release on June 13.
There really isn’t much we can say at this point. Worten certainly thinks the PS4 version of GTA V is a reality, but Rockstar has remained silent on the matter. You can add this to the collection of rumors and join us in waiting for an official announcement.
Rockstar just announced March 4’s The Business Update DLC for GTA V and GTA Online, but the announcement also included a mention of some of the new features planned for Story Mode, namely “new Assassination and Flight School missions.”
We don’t know if these are a part of the “substantial additions” they referenced back in December or if they’ll be released as separate side missions, but we hope this means their big plans are about to become a reality.
Stay tuned, and we’ll let you know the moment we learn about this or any other GTA V DLC.
An image has surfaced on Reddit (as above) of what appears to be a list of new weapons coming to GTA Online. They include names like Remote Sniper, Stinger, and Smoke Grenade. However, many players feel these are not new weapons, but weapons used in single-player missions.
We can’t be sure yet if this is a real list of new GTA Online weapons, or if it’s just a snippet of code from the single-player game, but we’ll let you know if new details come to light.
What do you think of some of these potential new weapons?
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…
