grand theft auto 5 online dlc heists

Well now, here’s something that’s potentially troubling. Though before I say any more, keep in mind that this is only a rumour at this time and is yet to be confirmed. Grand Theft Auto V, the record busting open world action adventure game, is set to come to PC later this month and in a worrisome move, it would appear that Rockstar may well be preparing to drop the Steam platform.

Users of the NeoGAF forums spotted the troubling information and quickly made sure that the news was spread far and wide. The game will apparently make use of the Rockstar Social club as a means of DRM. What’s worse is the rumour has been given credence by Gamesplanet, and the reliable online marketplace Green Man Gaming who have the game listed under using “other DRM”.

We haven’t heard anything official yet from Rockstar, but this may well be the first of many potential problems of GTA V on PC. Grand Theft Auto 5 is now available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and also on seventh generation consoles, the PS3 and Xbox 360.

    No STEAM no deal. adios R*…we still have bethesda!

    Well, Rockstar Social Club has been part of Rockstar games before as DRM in addition to Steam.

    I expect nothing has changed in this regard.

    Wasn’t it GTA IV that had Steam, Games for Windows Live, Rockstar’s own online service, and Securom in one clusterf*** of a release?

    Or was that Max Payne 3?

    • Cool

      GTA IV, GTAEFLC, LA NOIRE and MP3 all of them have Social Club.
      So i’m not worried, rockstar will sell millions for offline users, and millions or online users on steam.
      Thanks Rockstar, now i can play GTA V offline in peace like GTAIV and others.

    Thanks Rockstar, i want this way to complete the copies offline only for me. +1
    Steam copies should be with a key to activate and a DVD to install 100% offline!
