Fan fervor for a PC release of Grand Theft Auto V has been high lately, with the petition for it crossing 650,000 signatures and modders working on a mod version, as well. News of an official release, however, has been silent — although some people thought otherwise earlier this week.
A Youtube user named warrockteam1 uploaded a video that appeared to be footage of GTA V being played on a PC. This “alleged” announcement looked fairly legitimate, and many fans got their hopes up even as others decried it as a fake.
The cynics appear to have been correct. Back in September, a different video had been posted, and altered footage from that was what made up the fake GTA V PC release video. Once this was proven, Take Two Interactive suddenly came into the picture.
Take Two Interactive took down the fake footage, claiming it was copyright infringement. They also struck down the original video, even though there was no reason for that one to be considered a problem. They also removed every re-uploaded version of the “alleged” video, although the reason given was that such videos violate “Youtube’s policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content.”
Of course, many fans are suspicious. If the video was a fake, why did Take Two Interactive react so strongly? Therefore, this has added yet one more piece to the growing pile of rumors that an official GTA V PC release is on its way.
