The petition on Change.org urging Rockstar Games to port Grand Theft Auto V to the PC has seen another major surge this week, jumping from over 450,000 signatures to over 500,000. The petition had a little over 450,000 signatures a few days, ago – up from just over 365,000 signatures a little after the game's retail release. It had 200,000 signatures in July and has seen its support balloon since the release of the game last week.
Rockstar has not publicly commented on this petition or its recent growth spurt, but no doubt the company is paying close attention to it – having half a million people interested in a particular version of a game is hard to ignore.
On a related note, the Wii U Grand Theft Auto V petition on Change.org now has 5,894 supporters, up from the 5,109 supporters it had the last time we checked.
Yesterday Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz wrote in a research note to investors that Grand Theft Auto V sales have likely surpassed 15 million units worldwide and that the game will sell 25 million units in its first year of release.
