The tech giant may have tipped Rockstar's hand in a recent conference call to investors.

During the call, Nvidia's senior director of investor relations Chris Evendon touted the strength of PC as a gaming market, saying "Gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin's Creed IV."

This seems to suggest that the next iteration of Rockstar's blockbuster franchise is indeed headed for PC  - and sooner rather than later. We have reached out to Rockstar for an official comment on the story and will report back if we receive a response.

The full transcript of the Nvidia earnings call is posted at SeekingAlpha.

Our Take:

First off, there's a difference between an investor relations staffer at Nvidia saying something and Rockstar making it official. Frankly, I'd be a bit surprised if Rockstar had been able to keep the existence of such a large-scale PC project under wraps all this time. Also, if the game was headed for PC all along, why keep it a secret? Especially when, according to Nvidia, it's coming out this fall. That said, Rockstar follows the beat of a different drum. This is one rumor that all PC gamers are hoping is true. I do expect to see GTA V on PC someday; I'm just surprised to hear a report that it's due on the platform so soon.
