Going off of what Rockstar Games typically does with their Grand Theft Auto releases, you could tell that a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V was coming sometime in the future. But if what Eurogamer’s sources say is true, then we could see a GTA V release on the PC in early 2014.
For the sake of comparison, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV came out 7 months after the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version, in December of 2008. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also took roughly 7 months for its PC release, coming out in June of 2005. If Grand Theft Auto V were to make its way to PC in the first quarter of 2014, it would be the earliest adaptation from home consoles to PC’s in series history.
What we can be sure of is that Grand Theft Auto V coming to PC is par for the course. It did not take a Change.org petition (with over 600,000 signed) for this to happen. However, seeing that the GTA V will be coming to x86 architecture, we can start to question if Rockstar Games will be bringing the mayhem to next-generation consoles. Seeing how Grand Theft Auto V made record-breaking sales figures, I wouldn’t doubt that the game’s developers would pass at the chance for double or triple-dipping purchase opportunities. It could be one of the best in the series, so if the PC version does well it couldn’t hurt to try.
