GTA 5 Petition Urges Rockstar to Bring Game to PC

Rockstar Games has yet to announce a PC version of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto 5, prompting worried gamers to start an online petition encouraging the developer to release the game for PC when it debuts next year.

The online petition for GTA 5, hosted on change.org, now has over 46,000 signatures and is growing rapidly.

Petition organizer Mike Julliard included a statement to Rockstar on the petition reading:

“Please release GTA V on PC. GTA games have been a large part of so many peoples lives and it’s a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform. Things like modifications have always been a HUGE part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have.”

PC players interested in adding their signature to the petition can sign it here.

Dan Houser, vice president of Rockstar, stated there is a possibility GTA 5 could be coming to both the PC and Wii U after being questioned about it recently. A petition of this magnitude is sure to get his attention.

Rockstar has previously assured gamers they are dedicated to bringing their popular titles to the PC. Although no PC version of GTA 5 has been officially announced, the company could already have plans to port the game over after its initial release on consoles.

There is some precedent for this as Grand Theft Auto 4 originally released in April 2008 for consoles but did not launch a PC version until December of that year. GTA 4 has numerous popular mods available for PC gamers. Rockstar’s most recent title, Max Payne 3, debuted on consoles in May before a subsequent PC release in June.

GTA 5 is expected to release in Spring 2013 with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as the only confirmed platforms. The game will have three playable characters and features the largest environment in a Rockstar title thus far.

    Why so we can have an other frustratingly bad console port…?

    If only Rockstar set a minimum quantity of pre-purchase for PC (and no rights to cancel)… then they have no reason to not make a PC version =P

      TBH I think they will come out with a PC version for sure, it’s just a matter of when. Hopefully it’s like Max Payne 3, just one month later.
