One sleuth from GTA forums has put together a bunch of info that he believes confirms the PC version of the much anticipated Rockstar game, Grand Theft Auto 5.
It’s a common logic that the game will be released on the PC after the console versions are out–just like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto 4 were, but it’s normal for PC gamers to be skeptical considering Red Dead Redemption still hasn’t seen the light of the day on the platform.
The member who goes by the handle ‘Silv3r_W0lf’, has wrote that, “These are all facts, that I mentioned before but that people miss, because they hardly read the whole threads and this time I’ll post all the sources of these informations, instead of just listing them.”
Here’s why he thinks it will end up on the PC.
-Rockstar wrote on Steam News the in the exact same day it was announced to be out for consoles Spring 2013 (console games aren’t announced there unless they are also planned for the PC platform).
-Rockstar made the mistake of including parts of their test files in a Social Club Update (that or some employee about to get fired did it), they made another update right after and removed the content and the folder labeled GTAV but they never gave any explanation.
-The 2 CV leaks from Rockstar employees that mentioned they were working in GTAV and was being developed for Xbox360, PS3 and PC.
-The few messages sent to Rockstar support where people made technical questions about hardware and specifications with them answering as if they knew what the game will need for PC, when the normal answer would be “we don’t have any information about that”.
-The EB Games Store that had PC BOX (not the final cover) but same as the consoles but with the PC label on given by Rockstar for PC Pre-Orders (someone opened a R* box too soon I bet)
-Store posters with GTAV artwork where you can read Xbox 360/PS3 and PC.
These are the points we think are relevant, and for sources and images you can head over here and read his entire post.
GTA 5 will be released in Spring 2013 on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
