Rumors of next-gen and PC releases for the best-selling Grand Theft Auto V have been floating around since long before the game even launched, but after months of silence from Rockstar, most of us had given up hope for an announcement anytime soon.
Hmm. So much for that petition. People can be so immature sometimes. Looking forward to playing the best version of the game.
We knew it was coming eventually - it was only a matter of time. June sounds like an odd release window though, my guess is it will be out this fall.
"He clarified in another tweet that the release information is only a rumour." Still only a rumour atm according to that article.
Pro Racer june makes sense since not much gets released around summer time
Max Payne 3 got released in summer for PC.
Yeah, gta4 took 8 months to come out on pc, so I figured it would be about June when 5 got it's port.
That's why I held off on buying it for my PS3. I knew (hoped) that a next-gen version would be announced.
i keep thinking this fall as well. announcement at E3 with a fall release to cash in again on holiday. but who knows, maybe they will announce and release same day or a week later.
June has proven to not be an "odd" release window anymore, I understand you but last year for instance TLOU release in june and also Watchdog comes out really late may (27th). In a year there are different important release window such as fall, march and now june. I'll go ahead and say that even Driveclub, planetside 2 and GTA V may release in June.
@Lon3wolf Of course it's a rumor - my point is that it will come eventually. Rockstar would be fools not to re-release it for next gen consoles and PC at this point. Think of the masses who would gladly buy the game again to play it on new hardware - myself included. @Daniel_Potter True, Max Payne released in June. I guess we'll have to wait and see...
June is a great time to release a game. No one is putting games out so everyone is starved for games, and have extra time/cash during the summer. Guaranteed game sales if you put a good game out in June, or anytime in late spring/summer. I hate how most stuff is all released within a matter of weeks in the fall, not enough time to play them all.
I am actually hoping for this. Ever since I heard of this rumor I have held out playing GTA. Can't wait
I don't know why fans are expecting this game to be released on ps4/x1/ and PC? Did Rockstar ever release an HD remake on PS3 of san adrius? Rockstar has no love for PC because they don't like the pirate factor. Just accept that it's a game for ps3 and 360 already and move on.
Still just a rumor at this point. I'd love to see it happen, but we simply don't know yet. It would be a shame if this is the only main Grand Theft Auto entry that didn't make it to PC.
Yeah, slightly disappointed, but I still think it is coming. If it never comes then I will just hijack my friend's 360 copy and play that.
@duplissi Just borrow or buy your friend's 360 and buy the damn game. Why do you have to steal it? It's amazing and Rockstar deserves your money!
lol.... In this context Hijack=Borrow....
I dont think anyone doubts itll come to PC/PS4/Xbox One - its just a question of "when?"
I have it on the 360 and it will have to be SOME upgrade for me to buy it again on PS4 or XB1. I mean like the best graphics I've ever seen....
This version was a given, I think. Here's hoping that it comes with a trade deal.
Yeah I can't wait for the PC version too
Prepare to be underwhelmed all over again...IN 1080P!!!
Speak for yourself.
We broke this a month ago.... http://talkingaboutgames.co...
Rockstar seems to not really be a fan of the PC. Midnight Club LA - No PC Port GTA IV - port came out almost a year later Red Dead Redemption - No PC port LA Noire - 7 months later PC port Max Payne 3 - One and Only Rockstar game with a timely release on PC GTA V - ? Conclusion? Rockstar either doesn't care about the PC or does not think it's a viable platform. (This is reporting facts not hating on the PC, that's Rockstar's prerogative)
GTA IV did pretty well on PC, I believe. That's about it though, sadly. Red Dead would have been great on PC, but the code was apparently so sloppy that they would have had to build it from the ground up for PC.
R*San Diego (RDR-Midnight Club LA) does not like PC , their last game ported to it was Midtown Madness 2 in 2000 As for the rest , its just pure old way of thinking , the guys in charge at R*games have old beliefs of what pc gaming is. Proof? Just take a look at how similar Social Club is to that cancer of GFWL
@Nomercyonlyrage, Perhaps they don't feel like optimizing for the myriad of pc configurations AND having their game pirated.
Yeah PC get stiffed a lot with Rockstar. GTA5 in particular is a limited time exclusive for the consoles. There was an article a while back detailing how the consoles banded together and payed for limited exclusivity. It sucks. I've had it on PS3 but am dying to get it on PC
It's not that they aren't fans, I think they just want to make the most profit possible on consoles. GTA5 would never do 30m+ on PC due to piracy.
Thing is it doesn't need to sell 30 miilion to make a profit on it, funny enough the game was available to pirate on the 360 before its launch. With GTA4 they had they clever idea to fight pirates - https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I think it more to do with fixing glitches and bugs by releasing it to console first, like a beta test. PC is a very open platform and more user-friendly for hackers. If R* released GTA5 on PC at the same time as consoles, Online would have been a even bigger disaster. They will release it to PC, but need to take pre-cautions first.
Steam as a distribution platform has made piracy far less worrisome for developers.
Maybe not, but it wouldn't be due to piracy. PC gamers are generally a slightly different demographic than Console gamers are. It would sell less simply because it doesnt appeal to PC gamers as it does with Console gamers. I for one would buy it, but I know a lot of PC gamers who aren't even interested.
@Vegamyster "Thing is it doesn't need to sell 30 miilion to make a profit on it" That does't make sense.I don't think their goal is to make just at or above the profit margin, but to exceed it. "funny enough the game was available to pirate on the 360 before its launch." Piracy isn't as global on 360 as it is on PC.Or were you just saying that as a thought? I personally don't think they don't make pc versions because of piracy or because its not a viable platform .It may be a more technical reason that we as consumers don't know about.
@Dmarc I just don't like when some people say a game won't come to platform because of piracy, if that was true then The Witcher series would have moved exclusively to consoles. I assume they're working on the PC version along side PS4/Xone versions.
@Vegamyster CDProjektRed are an odd circumstance where consumers reward CDPR's convictions in terms of DRM and the trust the company has in their fanbase.
It's a good business strategy. Sell console versions first then release the PC version so they have to buy it again, I seen a lot of people buy the console version because they couldn't wait, same with Dark Souls 2
They can't program for crap on pc you mean. Grandtheft auto 4 ran like crap and was programmed by retards i think.
Dayum the more I look at it the more i realise rockstar is the greatest developer. Thank god I own both a PS4 and pc.
Max Payne 3 PC was awesome though
A fantastic port. Looked amazing and ran incredibly well.
Every GTA game has been out on PC, all being close to but not more than one year after the console release. Its not so much that they aren't PC fans as the fact that the only games they've released that they felt would net a good profit is GTA and MP3. Red Dead Redemption was considered a risk by many since Westerns is an unproven genre in gaming. They may not have made enough to warrant releasing on PC later on. LA Noire was barely profitable due to how Team Bondi's management treated their employees more like indentured servants than employees. It isn't so much they don't think it's a viable platform, it's clear that this past generation has had several games by them that were not quite profitable enough or too much of a risk to release on PC. GTA is one of very few console-released games that is consistently profitable.
So they don't think the PC is profitable enough?
Rockstar enjoys developing on PS hardware first. they're all about consoles. PCs are an afterthought it seems.
Do the console versions have a mod community?
it's to get people like me to double dip, I didn't want to wait so already played it on consoles, and will get it again (with DLCs) when it's on PC. evil strategy, and it's working!
So this whole article was written to confirm what we already know?
Put rumor in the title please. A man got excited for nothing.
It says rumor in the kind of the article it is buddy. Anyway I can't anymore, a Mod will have to do it
In the TITLE. You made the mistake of not including the original articles title "Grand Theft Auto V rumored to be landing on PS4, Xbox One and PC in June" and instead opted to use something that will get your post hits. Shameless!!
It would have never gotten so many klicks if "Rumor" would've been included in the title.
all of these rumors have to lead to something maybe not june has to be close to it.
Also. Misleading title.
I hope so! I'd love to play it again on my PS4 or see what they can do with it on PC. Just imagine ICEnhancer on GTA V. :)
If and when it does come out, I'd be really conflicted on whether to get it on ps4 or PC. Most of my friends are on console, but...dem mods for PC....damn! Guess I'll make an on-the-spot decision...
A lot of rumors. I don't trust it this time.
You might want to edit that title. It makes it look like it's confirmed while it's only a rumor
more fake rumors
if gta 5 comes out on x1 ill be happy to buy it again ( as long as i get to keep my gta online cash and financial status)
Poster wanted hits nothing more. The article states it as a rumor. The title is false.
Yeah, there's nothing more in the world I enjoy then getting hits that don't benefit me in anyway! Man I'm glad your'e not my neighbor.
Wow... What a childish response. Totally gonna lose sleep over that. EDIT:Nice edit Geoffry... Smooth...
May as well vote down the site then.
I might purchase it again on PS4
I have yet to play it, I knew waiting for the PS4 version was smart.
Wonder if anyone noticed the word "expected"
I would definitely pick this up again for next gen consoles, wondering how much of an upgrade the game is. Hoping for better frame rates and resolutions. Of course with the PC version you can expect a vastly larger upgrade with more options.
People already owning this title for xbox360 or ps3 should be given a upgrade path.
This only happened for games launching just days before the consoles & the upgrade option lasted only for few months Games like Tomb Raider,Last Of Us,GTA5 or TitanFall won't get this treatment Although they should
