Icon9 GTA 5 PC Version Might Take Another Month


When Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto IV for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in April of 2008, it waited roughly seven months to bring the title to PC. Now, as the fifth installment in the series hits store shelves Tuesday, the developer famous for keeping its lips sealed about studio secrets has no reason to change up that formula -- no matter how many signatures the ballooning Change.org petition garners.
The number of fans clamoring for a PC version of GTA V on the petition site stands at nearly 420,000 as of this story's publication. The number of signatures will only keep expanding as the game racks up more impressive reviews to bolster the ever-powerful Metacritic score that many gamers use, often unjustly, to direct their game purchases. GTA V holds the title of second-highest-ever rated game on the review aggregator, behind GTA IV.

Considering that PC is the most powerful platform and over 500000 signature on the petition.
Why is Rockstar trying to screw his own a$$ by ignoring the PC gamers who were important behind the success of MaxPayne 3 ?
Cant wait for the PC version but this makes us PC Gamers feel like beggers who are raising their hands in front of Rockstar for their 5th GTA installment while the Console gamers are being treated like Kings on the other side :\

This is 2nd time when it is happening after GTA4 which was launched about 8months after the console version.:hor se:

Feeling that Rockstar should get a special treatment with some Shuddh Desi Hindi Abuses.......

Re: GTA 5 PC Version Might Take Another Month

Piracy is the "biggest" drawback they say on the PC platform.
So ironic!
Even before GTA5 was released yesterday, people with modded X360s & JBed PS3s started playing on 14th.
And still they cry about "Piracy"?

If that was so, EA & Activision wouldn't have earned millions from their PC game sales, Valve wouldn't be racking up so much profits, and we wouldn't have been seeing so indie titles on Steam.

In short words, PC platform is the scapegoat.

Nope bro it is not written anywhere but it is just an estimation according to the game debate people as they have racked more than 5,00,000 signatures on the PC gaming petition.

PC is the master race is i may say.
Yes, it's the best in class, and totally agree with you on that. In fact, we all grew up with PCs.
But few developers think the other way, like Rockstar.

They always blame "Piracy" is the reason they don't want to bring games to PC. Just like Ubisoft quite some months ago said 95% of PC gamers are pirates

http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Ubi...tes-46015.html

I want to know what are they smoking!

But few devs like From Software had the balls to bring the console exclusive "Demon's Souls" as "Dark Souls" to PC, and it was a huge success.
And after that, they are spending more time with PC version of Dark Souls 2. That's what we call brilliant devs.

I really hate when devs give "Piracy" as excuse for not bringing their games to PC. That's why i said PC being the scapegoat.

Anyways, don't worry, GTA5 will make it to PC within the next 6-7 months
If they don't bring it, well Rockstar, your games are out of my shopping list. Forever.

And if piracy is the case then what measures were taken when 1million copies of Gears of War3 were pirated for Xbox360s in 2011.
Bullshit Reason

Yesh! Sleeping Dogs was just amazing.
There's even Saints Row 4 and incoming Watch_Dogs to take care from our GTA5 fever

Does not matter if it got leaked on Console ... People who downloaded were desperate fans just to play it early even though they had their copy on pre order.

It made 1Billion dollar just from console alone in 3 days .
Fastest uk selling game in a day .

I am sure those sales figure would have effect a bit with PC release and i know many Pc gamers own consoles too.

I don't mind the delay i just hope pc version is not a crappy console port with same textures .
Need better optimized with controls and everything .

With enb mods on GTA V i think this game is going be jaw dropping !

Re: GTA 5 PC Version Might Take Another Month

If I recall a report some 8 months back ( Don't remember which one ) , 6% of consoles gamers are pirates whereas 95% of PC people are pirates. Rockstar/other game dev's are gaining not much profits from PC where as there's gold for consoles.

But sadly i do.
It's due to this, now and then, i have to stay clear any GTA5 posts on gaming forums, news, updates, to not spoil the game till i play it.
Even i haven't even read any GTA5 review. So, yeah.

If you recall, Max Payne 3 was launched on PC just couple of days later than consoles, and still racked in huge profits. Not the best, but not worse either.
So, if Rockstar wanted, they could have released it simultaneously on PC, but they didn't, and this is their strategy. To get first profits from current gen consoles, then again from PC, and then if, from next gen consoles.
I'm not surprised.

But i'm tired of seeing PC platform being treated like this. By the time I'll play GTA5 on PC, it'll be spoiled for me. So, i'm doing the best i can to steer clear of all GTA5 related things on the web.

And i'm sure GTA5 will be heavily optimised.
If you remember playing GTA4 EFLC, then you'll how good optimised the game was from the main game :-)

I'm actually too much excited for Watch_Dogs at the moment. That game only stopped me thinking of GTA5..

Don't get carried away by some stupid reports. They literally pull those numbers out of their @$$.
