GTA 5 PC suggested for Fall release during Nvidia investor call
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.
