GTA 5 (1)

In the wake of the release of GTA V, the game has seen almost universal praise from gamers across the world. However, as things stand the game has only been released on consoles, not on PCs as we’ve seen with every other installment in the Grand Theft Auto series.

Since release, dedicated gamers have been going over the source code of the game, and have found some allusions to the potential for a PC release. It seems that the evidence is still piling up, as an XML file in the PS3 release of GTA V picked up this newest snippet:

• 985459 – PC – [PT][PB] Crash – > game_win32_beta_dx11.exe!strRequest::Release() Line 47 + 0xf bytes C++
• 614622 – [LB][PT][LDS][DX11] Blooms too much on smog weather setting.
• 632447 – [PC] All the phones are very dark and hard to read
• 496009 – [PC] Debug picker seems to be non-functional
• (no x64 prebuild cover) – Boot checks completed only.

Just about every previous PC version of GTA was stunning, as personal computers often have more advanced speed and graphics than do consoles. Every indication is that this trend will persist if GTA V sees a PC release.

    Of course it will come out on PC eventually, but probably after next gen PS4/X1.

    Publishers and developers will always prioritise Consoles over PC because the number one thing that puts off any publisher on PC is piracy, particularly in countries like China and Russia, who will get a hacked copy GTAV out on torrents as soon as it is released. Very sad but true. (This happened on consoles, but there are a tiny fraction of PS3/X360 that have hacked consoles able to play it so it made no difference to record breaking sales of GTA5 on these consoles).

    • daveyj is an idiot

      There are a HUGE number of xbox 360’s and PS3’s capable of running pirated software, Stop kidding yourself. The GTAV console torrent is one of the fastest shared torrents in torrent history.

  • Seeing IV in 4K res on PC makes it worth the wait.
