Just found this in the news at bluesnews.com, looks like some guys used a fake tech support request to get details on the PC version of GTA IV.

Part from one of the answers by a 2K employee:

... The PC version of GTA IV has not even been announced for release and is still in development ...

Good to hear. That's the closest we've come to confirming it. I figured it was a lock for it to come to PC anyways. I'm thinking it does so by Christmas.

This doesn't place us any closer to knowing if there will be a PC version or not. I mean I too can fake an email conversation with Rockstar support...

Sure, anyone could. You'd obviously have to be a complete and utter loser to do so. :p

Either way, I think it's a lock that it's coming to PC, have thought that all along.

Or someone looking to increase website traffic or to even just spread a rumor. ;) The fact that Rockstar hasn't said themselves that it isn't coming out on the PC is probably the best sign we have that it actually is. I mean if they weren't planning a PC release, then I'm assuming they would have said something about it being a console exclusive, this way it would have boosted the console versions sales, as we (and RS) know that some die hard PC fans are holding out.

Uhm, so we have a lock on Crysis coming to consoles too then! A developer from CryTek said during an interview that "Crysis for consoles would need an optimized engine, which is currently still in development". It's the exact same thing!

And look at that! Confirmation for a direct sequel to KotOR 2! Bioware also said if they were asked to make another Lucasarts game, it'd be KotOR 3, and we already know they're making a game for Lucasarts.

Rockstar would have to be insanely stupid to not make a PC version of GTA IV......so my gut tells me its coming but until official word is given i take everything with a grain of salt


If there is no image, Mikey broke something...

Eh, call me a pessimist if you want, but I tend to distrust scammers.

While I'm closer to believing a PC version will eventually come out, I doubt someone working in tech support would be fully knowledgeable about its development. I also find it hard to believe they would actually confirm its existence like that.
