“Please note, during our Thursday’s earnings call, our investor relations team provided a list of important games that gamers are looking forward to on PC this fall, and included Grand Theft Auto V on that list. This statement was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general, and was not intended to represent specific knowledge possessed by NVIDIA. NVIDIA does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability. We deeply regret the error.”
Even though the status of a PC version for Rockstar’s upcoming Grand Theft Auto V title is still ‘officially ‘unknown, it seems that a recently held investor call from the folks over at Nvidia may have provided some confirmation that Grand Theft Auto V will be coming to the PC platform after all.
This reveal occurred during an earnings call (transcribed by Seeking Alpha) hosted by Chris Evenden, Nvidia’s senior director of investor relations whom goes on to say the following:
The PC market is evolving as entry level laptops face pressure from tablets. Yet sales of speciality PCs like gaming systems and work stations continue to grow. The disparity reflects how consumers use these different classes of PCs. Many consumers look for PC as a general purpose device they can use for browsing, email, social media and video.
But much of this can be better served by a tablet. In contrast, 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 5 and Assassin’s Creed 4.
If what Evenden says is true, you can expect to see a PC port of Grand Theft Auto V this fall, which is a lot sooner then expected, as Rockstar usually takes takes a few months or so to release a PC port of their recent titles.
Also, a recent Rockstar job opening has been spotted a few weeks back, in which the studio was searching for staff members to port some of company’s titles to the PC. Additionally, be sure to check with us on August 15 when the first trailer for GTA Online is set to debut.
Grand Theft Auto V is set to release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17.
