The lights are on
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."
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.
full transcript of the Nvidia earnings call is posted at SeekingAlpha.
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.

My current video card is handling everything I throw at it as of now, but I'll be looking for an Nvidia video card upgrade that comes bundled with a copy of GTAV...if it is released on PC. I can wait a year or so after the console release.
Everything is "leaked" these days...
I hope this game comes to PC... It all depends on WHEN.
I am so surprised (said no PC gamer ever this year)
Look through rockstars history. Only 1 of their big titles in the last like 10 years have not come to PC (Red Dead). It may come some time after the console release but it is very very likely that it will come to PC.
if this is true. then might as well to upgrade the graphics card. haha
May the mods floweth forth.
If it really came to PC as soon as that, that would be the surprise of the year for me. Please let it be true.
Wow, I bet this game is going to look beautiful on a good PC.
I had a copy pre-orederd for my 360. then I sold my xbox so I switched it to my ps3, and if this is true but I doubt it I will have to switch to PC :D
