GTA 5 for PC Has Not Been Delayed or Canceled

Fall 2014 release date for open-world game "has not changed," Rockstar says.

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V has not been delayed or canceled, developer Rockstar Games has confirmed. After recent reports suggested that this might be the case, a post from a Rockstar Games support staffer confirms that the game's fall 2014 release date for PC in unchanged.

"I'm also looking forward to the PC release," the representative said in a reply to a fan who asked if the PC version of GTA V had been delayed. "However, this release date has not changed."

Officially, GTA V is set to launch this fall for PC, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game's actual release date for those platforms could be November 14, according to a recent--and unofficial--listing at United Kingdom retailer Gem.

GTA V launched in September 2013, generating over $1 billion in revenue in just 72 hours. The game has since shipped 34 million copies on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 alone. The new versions will offer better visuals, more densely populated worlds, and increased draw distances, among other improvements.

Don't worry guys, a new next gen trailer with release date will be out in 17/9/2014( 1st anniversary of GTA V)

[This is just a smart guess]

Hopefully GTA 5 on PC runs better than GTA 4 did... My GTX 780 6gb can't even come close to running it maxed out while maintaining a solid 60 fps, meanwhile BF4 on ultra and 130% resolution scale maintains 60+ fps.

I might buy it if the Steam version is Steam only and uses Steams server infrastructure for multiplayer and if I'm able to host my own server.

If it requires Rockstar Social Club account and online DRM then I'll pass, but I hope they make that entirely optional.

I saw an article on here that EA was complaining about preorders being down, and that they needed new ways to generate early sales. Well GTA5 was like the largest preorder game in history. Skyrim, Fallout also was strong. Publishers and retailers make money off the interest on the money for preorders and also those that preorder rarely cancel and ensure a sale even if the reviews are poor. What game publishers need to to remember is make a great game first, a strong fan base will ensure sales and preorders. Next offer some better swag then just a digital gold gun - in the old days babbages and capcom gave away resident evil 3 t-shirts, chrono cross gave away a clock, and many gave away physical maps. (which i frame and people always comment on them). EB toys and electronic boutique gave away some pretty cool swag with their games also. 

But again the above game was great on console xbox 360 - cannot wait to try it later this year on pc or ps4.

This rumor came about cause all the news sites mentioned the PS4/XBoxONE versions, but not pc, as the majority of these sites are run by consoletards.

Rockstar needs to cancel this port and start working on Red Dead Redemption 2. GTA 5 is too much of a disappointment to touch the PC glorious pc gaming master race.

I would like to thank the console gamers for beta testing the game for us. Just consider something: A year after this game is released on the consoles, it's going to be pretty much the same exact game. A year after it's released on the PC there will be so much new (and free!) content made by modders, it will practically be a new game. Another year after that, the exact same game on the consoles, even more free content on the PC. A year after that, still the same on the consoles, more free content in the PC.


So to the console gamers who keep acting like jerks because they got the game first, I'm going to be a jerk right back and say we got it best.

Not decided whether I want to get it or not, I guess it'll depend on what else is about at the time.


One thing is certain though, Cam and Seb are likely to be replacing the Skyrim Mods show with GTA V mods. How long before we get GTA exploding chickens?

Wow all this hate for so many games. I guess it's better to hate on a game than stand up to a boss or parent amirit? Silly kids.

Aww poor master race. Until it's finally released for PC, why not use that expensive rig to hop over to YouTube and watch clips of console gamers playing GTAV...from like a year ago ;)

sorry but i would NEVER want to play this game on a pc (especially multiplayer) look at how much trouble R* had with just console people with modded lobbies, now times that by a few million more because theres not going to be any order on the pc version. say hello to god mode, millions upon millions of money that was cheated to get and max levels in seconds <-that is just a tip of a giant ass iceberg.

AWWW I was really hoping it was Cancelled or at least delayed past the PS4 and Xbox One versions even though I have no interest at all playing it again.

I will only re-buy if we have the option to turn off the annoying kill indicators(strobe flash and x marker)and they add more story missions to the campaign. The current GTAV feels cut.

I've played it on the 360 and won't buy it again, but I can't wait to see what the modding community will make of this game. 

No... you know what... if someone can make me a Breaking Bad mod, with meth cooking mini games, drug slinging, underground meth labs and all that good stuff, then I'm buying it again! That's what I always wanted GTA V to be... the lack of real open world drug dealing was quite disappointing.

@MasterSatsujin Are you high?  GTA V is the best one since Vice City.


It SHOULD have launched on pc with the others... glad it didn't though, cause now we get it on pc in full next-gen glory.  And it will only look better once it's modded.

@Auriken I think we shouldn't rub the "beta testers" pun on the console gamers too much. If GTA V PC is somewhat close to how GTA IV PC was at launch, we will end up being the "alpha testers" to the "beta" they played. 

Not only we will be a laughing stock, they won't even have any reason to "thank" us for it.

@Gravity_Slave I would be sad that PC does not have GTA5 yet if I didn't have 20+ games in my backlog(most of these are games never coming to console) So nothing of value has been lost by this GTA 5 delay on PC.

With that said I have not played GTA5 at all and I can wait for it to hit $20 in December during one of our many sales. its not like I don't have a mountain of other games to play in the mean time.

@Gravity_Slave Most people probably have played it. I originally bought the game for 360 but I first played GTA IV on PC. Playing the sequel to GTA IV on console felt like a step backwards and I didn't put much time into the game before deciding that I'd rather wait for an up to date version to come out.

frozenuxx

@Gravity_Slave

Console gamers playing GTAV, you mean slide-showing it or having online shenanigans. Hell to the point that devs had to expressly demand people to not install the damn game on their harddrive to avoid the ever present framerate issues. That was crazy. But hey you get to pay for the same game again since the new consoles have no backward compatibility. Rockstar had really a genius plan...

Zorlac

@sonyonly4 Why the hell would you EVER want a game cancelled? Just because you don't want to play through it again doesn't mean there's not millions of PC players that DO want to play it, or even play it again. Gaming doesn't revolve around you, me, or any other one person out there.

@ESB @bloody-hell What's not happening?  It isn't coming out on Steam?  It won't use Steam's server infrastructure?  It won't allow private server hosting? It won't require DRM?  Or it won't require RSC?  Hope I get a vague 2-word response too!

@frozenuxx 

Backwards compatibility on PC and console are 2 totally different beasts. on PC games can actually look even better on newer hardware(like running BF4 on med/high now but then running it @ ultra when you upgrade in 5 years or running a game @ 1080p now and 4k in 2 years). where is on console they will always look like they did when they first came out. Sure they may get an upscale in res but the textures will look like crap because the game never shipped with better textures.

Hell with mods on PC, games can even be updated 20 years later to be fresh again (Brutal doom mod). Doom is still fully playable without any mods as well even 20 years later.


I cant think of a single console game I can play 20 years later on any console with out re-buying the game on a newer system. Hell even my PC can play 20 year old console games just fine.

I'm the type of person that actually likes going back and playing the games I really liked so backwards compatibility is important to me in a system. You just don't get this with consoles. with the minor exception of Nintendo. But I'm already playing Wii games on my PC its only a matter of time before I'm playing Wii U games as well.

@frozenuxx I've played the whole game fully installed on X360 and never had an issue. 
Now im waiting for the PS4 version =)

@dirtydouggle @ESB @bloody-hell  It will probably be on Steam but there is no chance of it not needing Rockstar Social Club. Just look how GTAIV or LA Noire work, that will probably be the same model used on GTA V.
