Rockstar: GTA 5 for PC “Up for Consideration”
In an interview with IGN, Dan Houser — one of the driving forces behind the Grand Theft Auto franchise — offered a cryptic half-answer regarding why GTA V has not been confirmed to launch on the PC yet.
When asked why GTA V has only been confirmed for Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, and not other platforms like the PC, Houser said:
“Everything else is up for consideration. That’s all I can give you. The main thing is we are not… we are a third-party publisher. We’re not Nintendo, we’re not Sony, we’re not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there’s the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market. If that’s on Apple we put something on Apple. Wherever it might be. I think that’s the fun in what we do. We see ourselves as a content company that uses technology. We don’t make it; we use it to make the most fun stuff.”
I find it staggering that the possibility exists that GTA V won’t launch on PC, given the tremendous community of players and modders the series has on the platform.
