Poll: Will There Ever Be a PC Release of Grand Theft Auto 5?

October 23, 2013 - Andrew Eisen

Let's talk about one of the 118 For Everything But Wii U games, Grand Theft Auto 5.

GTA V released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 last month to rave reviews and record-breaking sales.  And yet, some gamers are still not happy.

No, not Nintendo fanboys.  We're never happy.

I speak of PC gamers.  PC gamers who seem to be scared stiff that they may never get a version of GTA V to call their own (just like Wii U owners never will).  So concerned are they that over 600,000 of them have petitioned Rockstar for a PC release.

To be fair, not every game in the GTA franchise wound up on the PC.  Grand Theft Auto Advance (yes, Nintendo got a GTA exclusive!), Liberty City Stories, Vice City Stories and Chinatown Wars never made it.  So just because the PC saw releases of Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto 2, Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, Lost and the Damned, and the Ballad of Gay Tony, that doesn't guarantee PC gamers will get the opportunity to enjoy Grand Theft Auto 5.  No sir, the only thing we can be certain about is that Wii U gamers most assuredly won't.

But what do you think, dear readers?  Will the PC see a release of GTA V?  Vote in the poll and let us know!  Comment away, send us email at SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com and stay tuned for next week's podcast in which EZK and I will reveal the poll results and mercilessly tease everyone who thinks a PC version isn't inevitable.

P.S. - In case it wasn't clear, I'm a bit sore about there being no Wii U version of GTA V.

Absolutely there will be a release on PC. The only problem is when. Rockstar and their perfectionist ways makes the wait painful. There is a collection of evidence thus far: http://www.grandtheftautoforever.com/gta-5-pc.htm which pretty clearly says that where there is smoke there is fire. I just hope my current PC can keep up with whatever requirements GTA 5 PC will require.

Will there be a PC port? Well, if history serves us right, we will see a port to PC. So far, there hasn't been a major Grand Theft Auto release that hasn't gotten a PC port sooner or later. However, the quality of the port will probably not be of very good quality (Rockstar is notorious for half-assed ports)

GTA 4 might not have been the best port in the world but it was far from a disaster.

SR2 was a disaster port.

Re: Poll: Will There Ever Be a PC Release of Grand Theft Auto 5?

IV on pc was a pathetic disaster of a port.

A very important fact that will be entirely glossed over, if not downright ignored in favor of 'bad sales, whiny losers, PIRATES' idiocy when it comes down to deciding whether or not to port V to pc.
