GTA 5′s PC version to support DirectX 11

Recent bug listings leaked pretty much confirm that there's a PC version in the works for GTA 5, and that this version will support DirectX 11! (Grand Theft Auto V, PC)

Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 34

There better be a next-gen version too :)

I was just about to say get ready for a ps4 and xbox one release.

getting it on PC for the inevitable mods
showtimefolks  +   494d ago

oh yeh you better believe it, it will likely launch at the same time as pc version

i will surly buy it for ps4, also i would pay full price again for The last of Us. Played both already but i know that next gen versions will gain a lot by going next gen
moujahed  +   494d ago
No... it won't. If they ever do decide to release one for the current generation consoles it will be by the end of the year or around summer time.
showtimefolks  +   494d ago

oh please tell me why? porting from pc to ps4 takes very little effort, and i am sure xbox one is the same way

why is it that pc fanboys can't deal with the fact that next gen consoles could get GTA5 at the same time as a PC?

if pc is getting a GTA5 release than next gen versions will launch along with it. whether pc fans like it or not. It makes too much sense money wise for RS to not do it

you guy act like next gen consoles came out of no where and RS didn't know the specs or anything. For all we know RS could have been working on porting the game over to ps4 and xbox one along with PC while development was near finishing

Let's not make this a pc-console thing. PC gamers don't care if it comes to next gen, and probably vice versa. Let's just hope they optimize and maximize whatever hardware they port it to.

Nobody cares about your crap pcs with custom cases which are called consoles. I'll be playing at 1440p at ultra settings with the great mods
Bladesfist  +   494d ago
Obviously some people care about them if they are breaking sales records.
starchild  +   494d ago
You are assuming console gamers are "people". jk
GuruMeditation  +   494d ago
Did the arrogance come with your gpu, or did you have to cultivate it separately? People love their consoles, much like you enjoy your rig. I choose to play both, but even if I didn't I wouldn't understand the need to be such a d'bag about it...
TheSaint  +   494d ago
Just remember, you wouldn't even have GTA V if it wasn't for consoles. You're welcome.

Also, PC gaming would be in a much worse state without the consoles bringing gaming into the mainstream, again, you're welcome.

Lol at PC players.

Or get the pc version, it will look better then the ps4 one and run smoother and has mods...

I don't get console gamer, there is no reason to play on console beside getting less
AusRogo  +   494d ago
For the exclusives, its cheaper then having to buy a nice pc set up? I play consoles and dont feel like im getting less. Not to say i dont like PC gaming though. I just dont get pc elitists.
GuruMeditation  +   494d ago
Well, there's people like me for one. I get paid on a per - contract basis and have 3 kids to feed, so I don't always know when I'll have spare cash. With that level of uncertainty, I can't always do my rig justice in terms of keeping up to date. For people such as myself, having a console is a great way to play the latest games without worrying about the cost of upgrading. If, however, I get a lucrative enough contract, I can consider adding to my PC. Everyone had a preference and a reason. It's not ours to understand nor care.
darx  +   494d ago

If money is a concern then you should stick with PC gaming.
GuruMeditation  +   494d ago
@darx read my post. Money isn't an issue, rather the regularity of it. Anyway, it's a moot point; I also prefer consoles for mainly illogical and personal reasons and, as everyone has their own preferences, maybe it's about time we just accepted that, rather than trying to {understand, counter, convert}
DeadlyFire  +   494d ago
There will be buddy. They have made more than enough cash to bring it over to next gen consoles without even thinking about a loss of profit.
sklorbit  +   494d ago
If i could count all the times that leaks have "pretty much confirmed pc gtav."

paul-p1988  +   493d ago
They are pretty much the same regularity as 'Nintendo is doomed' articles, and they are pretty much every other post today lol
gamernova  +   494d ago
Why wouldn't it have it? It has been the standard for a looooong time.

i hope next gen and pc version has las venturas
ELCID777  +   494d ago
There is a next-gen version, which appears to be based on the dedicated PC build of the game. Here's proof discovered by a modder scanning through the visualsettings.dat file.

PC version of GTA V - good, good...

Now where's my PC version of Destiny?
combatcash  +   494d ago
it should arrive shortly, there's no way there missing out on that game for pc.
ELCID777  +   494d ago
PC Gamer is either full of incompetent, slow and lazy "journalists", or simply straight up retards. NONE of this information is new. It's months old now, and, in fact, the people at GTAforums were the first to discover this way back in September 2013.


Anyways, the log file is incontrovertible proof that they started work on the PC version since before 2012, and that it was developed alongside the console builds, meaning it's not a port, but a dedicated, "from the ground up" version. Unlike GTA 4, which was as basic a console port as it gets.

Read through it here, but be warned, it's very long and tedious to get through.


use CTRL + F and search PC

I'm kinda tired of seeing these articles of course when it come to PC it will have PC feature its nothing new. Let's stop the gtav article into they announce it.
bobsmith  +   494d ago
maybe theyll delay pc version another 3 or 4 months after ps4 and xbone version
starchild  +   494d ago
Next gen console versions may or may not be released. I don't know why some of you think just because it will be released for the PC that next gen console versions are a given.

Because it would be profitable. The amount of work it takes to port the pc version to next gen (or vice versa) is greatly reduced thanks to the new architecture. Just doing pc (or just doing consoles) would be like burning money.
Qwagy UK  +   494d ago
I'll be picking this up for the PS4.
urwifeminder  +   494d ago
Nice I skipped this been waiting for the pc version packed last gen back in its box.
m2stech  +   494d ago
GTA 5 + icenhancer = Awesomeness
Agent_hitman  +   494d ago
Now that's what I'm talking about.
FlyingFoxy  +   494d ago
As long as theres 64-128 player online and is just as customizable as SA-MP i will buy it for sure, that would be extremely fun.
ExitToExisT  +   494d ago
I really can't wait Rockstar to either announce the PC version or say there won't be a PC version just so i won't see this type of articles every day.
Mister_Dawg  +   494d ago
PC version to support dx11?

This was bloody obvious.
Does it really need an article to tell us all the bloody obvious? I think not.
dogdirt2000  +   494d ago
Considering that Rockstar have their own engine team in San Diego, the 'RAGE Technology Group', and the fact that Max Payne 3 running on 'RAGE' supported DX11, I would have thought that this news was already a given. To be honest, even if Max Payne 3 didn't exist 'RAGE' utilizing DX11 would be completely expected. I mean, you don't have an ATG if 5+ years after a new common standard is released you still haven't adopted it, let alone mastered it.
