GTA 5 PC: Nvidia has no knowledge of release, comment made in error – statement

Wednesday, 14th August 2013 09:33 GMT By Dave Cook

Grand Theft Auto 5 was pegged for a ‘Fall’ release during Nvidia’s recent investor call. The company has now confirmed to VG247 that the release window was stated in error.

Sent to us this morning, the statement reads, “Please note, during our Thursday’s earnings call, our investor relations team provided a list of important games that gamers are looking forward to on PC this fall, and included Grand Theft Auto V on that list.

“This statement was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general, and was not intended to represent specific knowledge possessed by NVIDIA. NVIDIA does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability. We deeply regret the error.”

The fall release window was mentioned during this investor call, sparking rumours that GTA 5 would indeed hit PC this year. That’s all up in the air again now.

Worry not though, here’s some brand-new GTA 5 screens to keep you happy for a while.

GTA 5 launches worldwide on PS3 and Xbox 360 September 17.

    Alright calm down. We both know GTAV will come out on PC eventually, why is everyone making a big deal about this?!

    You’d a thought a GTA title has never been released for PC with the way this shit has put bored gamers into a flippin’ frenzy!

    @1 you are literally too stupid to insult. always there will be a creepy console fanboy like you talking bad about PC gamers.
    Why PC gamers are only pirating? console gamers also pirating.
    There are also genuine PC gamers. some may pirate i accept. But what is so happy for guys like you i don’t know if gta 5 not makeup for pc. And more often what are you doing in this article. this is for pc gamers.

    Nvidia have had their head stuck up their ass ever since they lost to AMD on the console contract

    also nvidia lose its place in the gaming community
    before two years almost all games developers use nvidia’s hardware
    now most of developers use AMD’s hardware

    but you don’t know anything about nvidia
    they have better business with larger corporations (IBM, vmware, citrix,…)
    nvidia’s market value is >x3 more than AMD’s market value

    several months ago AMD was on the cliff of closure
    but thanks for some arabian riches
    (they also have a good business with the technology not just with football clubs :p)

    Nvidia cares less about AMD than a Great White Shark cares about phytoplankton floating in its wake.

    Nvidia were never going to do the console deal, their hardware is too potent and too costly for console makers to use and they didn’t have their own ARM CPU at that time.

    Hardly a game changer for them given their almost insane financial performance and things like the 780 and Titan which AMD cannot touch.
