Rockstar's Sam Houser reckons Games for Windows Live is ideal for the PC version of GTA IV. Luckily, then, the game's online modes will be exclusively matched to the service when it launches on November 18.
"We're incredibly proud of the deep, customisable multiplayer experience that Grand Theft Auto IV offers players," said Houser.
"As we work toward the release of the PC version, Games for Windows – Live affords us the opportunity to seamlessly translate the multiplayer console experience for PC gamers. The service is a natural fit for the platform and we strongly believe it will help in building a strong online community around GTA IV PC."
So there we are.
