Is GTA 5 on PC?

Is GTA 5 on PC?

Is GTA 5 on PC?

What’s one question gamers keep asking over and over? Simple – Is GTA 5 on PC going to happen? Grand Theft Auto 5 from Rockstar Games is easily the most anticipated game of 2013 and perhaps of the last five years. The entire GTA series is ridiculously popular with multiple games in the series winning “Game of the Year” honors from multiple outlets. Many PC gamers are dying to play the next incarnation of the GTA series on their beefed up rigs and have the digital means to do it thanks to Steam. However, the question remains: Is GTA 5 on PC? For now, the official answer is unknown, so let’s dig a little deeper to find out more.

[adsense336itp]If you are a big GTA 5 fan and haven’t read them already, be sure to read Ryan Bloom’s article about the GTA 5 Petition Urges Rockstar to Bring Game to PC. In the article, it details that Rockstar Games has yet to announce a PC version of action open-world game, but that hasn’t stopped an online petition from receiving hundreds of thousands of signatures. As of March 10, 2013 the petition has over 160,000 signatures with the aim of getting 200,000 at the popular website.

We know that Rockstar originally set a Spring 2013 release date for the game that has come back to blow up in their faces from a PR perspective. GTA 5 will not appear on store shelves as it turns out until September 17, 2013 assuming another delay doesn’t occur. Rockstar Games announced that GTA 5 will appear on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but did not announce any other platforms. To follow the delay more closely, we highly recommend reading Ben Sheene’s popular article, What Does the GTA 5 Delay Signify? and leaving your own comments theorizing what it means to the franchise.

Come September, will we still ask the question, is GTA 5 on PC? Or will we already assume that no news is actually bad news because if no PC platform is announced we can all assume it won’t happen? Time will certainly tell, but the silver lining might be looking to what happened with Grand Theft Auto 4. The game was released on consoles first and six months later, appeared on the PC. That might sting for PC gamers, who would have to wait an entire half-year to play GTA 5, but the fact that it did happen and is (still) available on Steam should be encouraging.

Is GTA 5 on PC? Not yet. Will GTA 5 be on PC? Most likely – it’s just a matter of when.
