GTA 5 PC suggested for Fall release during Nvidia investor call

Tuesday, 13th August 2013 10:14 GMT By Dave Cook

Grand Theft Auto 5 was name-dropped for a potential Fall release during a recent Nvidia investor call.

We reported on Nvidia’s recent financials here, which were then followed by the company’s usual investor call.

Crave Online has picked up on something said during the call which might suggest that GTA 5 is coming to PC this Fall.

Nvidia’s senior director of investor relations Chris Evenden said, “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.”

Now, he may just be speaking in general gaming terms, but seeing as he was focusing mainly on PC, the issue is up for debate.

We know that Rockstar Leeds has been hiring staff to help bring the company’s titles to PC, and with GTA 5 PC petitions getting a lot of support, there just might be some truth in the matter. We won’t know for sure until Rockstar confirms either way however.

Do you think GTA 5 might hit PC this year? Let us know what you think below.

    Would make no sense at all. They would have announced it ages ago.

    Next year or never.

    What are chances that their spokesman didn’t just Google “upcoming videogames” and put the first 3 he got into his speech?
    How much does “senior director of investor relations” know about games?

    Anyway, if this is true, Rockstar is going to bury NVidia. GTA5 PC to be AMD exclusive? j/k

    Agree with #1, if it’s coming to PC then it’s coming next year, likewise any next-gen release, and they won’t announce it sooner as they want as many current-gen sales as possible.

    There’s also a possibility that we will hear about the PC version on that new GTA Online vid. After all, the multiplayer for GTA first started on PC as a mod and only later with Liberty City Stories Rockstar added to the series.

    I would be surprised if its this fall but they will have to do a pc port in any case as both new consoles are basically mid to high end pc’s, depending how you look at them give or take a little edram. I would be highly surprised if there wasn’t a ps4 xone port of this game. They most likely haven’t announced it as it not ready and they don’t want to cannibalise sales as is happening with COD pre-orders.

    Same here. I just can’t say a big name title like this being announced for PC only a month or two before release. They sure ain’t announcing it before September 17th.
