“Release GTA 5 on PC” Is The Biggest Gaming Petition Ever

Grand Theft Auto 5 is over a week out from release, but that hasn’t slowed the PC port petition down at all.

Currently sitting at 548,000-plus signatures and counting, Change.org has confirmed that the “Rockstar: Release GTA 5 on PC” petition is the largest gaming-related petition the site has ever hosted. It’s also the sixth-largest global petition of any kind to grace the site.

There’s no doubt in my mind that a PC version of GTA 5 is coming, and I’d like to think that most of the petition signers know that, too. We will probably see next-gen and PC versions of Rockstar’s latest announced at the same time, with a release date in the first half of 2014.

Rockstar wants GTA 5 on the PC to look as good as it possibly can, so using the same high-res textures on the PC that we will likely see in the next-gen SKUs is a smart decision from a developer’s point of view. On the other hand, many (myself included) think Rockstar should have released a PC version from the get-go, high-res textures or not, and patched in enhancements along the way. The strategy worked pretty well for Skyrim, right?

Because that worked out so well for Red Dead Redemption.

I thought the Division was the most petitioned PC port requested game of all time?

Why do we need a petition for this?
Rockstar have always released gta for pc up to 6 months after console versions.
Also video games are made on a pc anyway so there is a pc version of this game
Just relax people

What is the point of this petition? All of the GTA’s always get a PC version. Historyically, the pc version never comes out at the same time as consoles. Rockstar never had plans of releasing RDR on PC and said so from the beginning. They have never said anything like that for GTA V. Either wait for the PC version (best version of all) or go play it on a ty 360 or ps3 if you can’t wait any longer. Patience young grasshoppers.
