Intel Expects GTA V to Release on PC Soon
Grand Theft Auto V is not a title that will remain console exclusive for long, believes director of marking for Intel’s Premium Notebooks Chris R. Silva.
Speaking with PC Gamer, the Intel representative said that the new Grand Theft Auto will definitely be released on PC and that the specific consumer base should expect it to happen soon.
“At least with Grand Theft Auto, I don’t think it’ll be console-exclusive very long. But that’s what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content.”
Silva also added that that the only reason Rockstar Games withheld a PC release is because “somebody paid a lot of money to make sure that title was exclusive.” He though didn’t go on record as to which company exactly committed the act.
GTA V has gone on to make quite a name for itself in history, achieving seven new Guinness records and earning more than a billion in just the first three days. One has to wonder if releasing a PC version would have ended up with an even great set of achievements or not.
An online petition asking for the PC version has crossed more than 600,000 votes but while many are hoping for Rockstar to release the game for Windows PC; it cannot be forgotten that their PC support so far has been terrible. The port for GTA IV was released around eight months after the console versions and it was far from complete.
Now looking at the media released for GTA V, the game looked absolutely stunning in possible HD glory. However, on the consoles the footage didn’t quite match up to what we saw before. It’s possible that Rockstar is going to release a far superior version for the PC and PlayStation 4 alike; at least that’s what the rumors tell us.
