RUMOR: Rockstar Cancels Grand Theft Auto V PC and Delays Next-Gen Until 2015

A report by FoxWeekly claims that, despite it being listed on Steam, Grand Theft Auto V may not actually happen.

The rumor was started by a man named “Brad”, who worked as a Rockstar Games marketing manager before starting his own marketing firm. His website was later hacked by Anonymous and 4chan displaying the message on his homepage “Hacked by 4chan, Give us our GTA 5 for PC”.

The FoxWeekly report stated that the next-gen systems would not be affected by the news of the PC version, however, other sources contradict this claim stating that there was indeed a delay in the release date for these system and was pushed to 2015.

If you remember, Rockstar revealed at this years E3 of GTAV arriving this fall on the next-gen systems and PC. If the PC version was indeed cancelled, there must have been a very good reason.

Hopefully, this will turn out to be exactly what it is already, just a rumor.

Rockstar has been contacted about any information on the PC cancellation and delay in the next-gen versions. We’ll update you with any information we receive.

@mroofie Hey at least it’s better than an N4G article. Somehow they would have related this to Xbox One sucking, PS4 being so much better.. and amazing us all that they could release their hands from Sony’s ass while gagging on their long enough to write the article to begin with.

I’m sure it’ll still come to PC. I have doubt in the validity of these rumors, even before reading the link that Mroofie provided.

Now can we please get a PC port of Red Dead Redemption? Please? Pretty please? *puppy dog eyes*

Rumor or not I wonder if Next-Gen consoles are ever going to actually get Next-Gen games. So far all I see are remakes and “enhanced” versions of games everyone’s already played.

@Jeff Kaos

What are you 18? Same thing happened with the launch of the 360 and the PS3.

@killian
Really? Cause GTAIV’s PC community is still pretty strong. Modding gets you way past 3 months of fun on the PC.

LMAO. So they are afraid to put this on P.C. because it will prove that Consoles are inferior and nowhere close to the power of P.C.

Good riddance. Garbage belongs on consoles anyway.
