Petition for PC version of GTA V hits 40,000 signatures
A petition to bring GTA V to the PC platform has just reached 40,000 signatures, out of a desired 100,000. Rockstar has at the moment not released any details about a potential PC release of the game.
A petition has been started at change.org for the PC release of Rockstar Games' upcoming Grand Theft Auto V. The petition is hoping for a total of 100,000 signatures, of which it has so far managed to get 40,000 of. Rockstar hasn't mentioned a PC release so far. In an interview with IGN, Rockstar's Dan Houser stated that "for those asking about the PC platform, we're currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don't have any details to share about a PC version at this time.”
"Hey 360, let's go hang out with GTA V! Oh.. hi, PC; sorry, you can't come"
A good sign is that Houser also said all platforms other than 360 and PS3 are up for consideration. In addition, the Grand Theft Auto games have always seen a PC release, even if they're always much later to the market than the console versions. Grand Theft Auto IV, for example, was released for PC a whole seven months after the console release. Of course, these delays are always accompanied by mod support and better visuals, so waiting might not be all that bad.
Of course, ensuring there will be a PC release by tossing petitions at Rockstar is not a bad idea anyway. The petition cites, among other reasons for a PC release, that the franchise has a big impact and would be missed on the platform, that the PC is the most powerful platform and that the modding community unique to PC gamers has always enjoyed playing with GTA, and that this has resulted in some of the most fun gameplay you can have in GTA.
