It's believed that Grand Theft Auto V will release for PC in the first quarter of 2014, reports Eurogamer. "I don't think it'll be console exclusive very long," said Chris Silva, an Intel director of marketing, chatting with PC Gamer. "But that's what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content."
Rockstar's official line on the matter is that "We don't have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now."
While I'm thankful to get some GTA V time in using Conrad's copy, truth be told, I'm cautious not to get too invested in the main story knowing how much better the game could be on PC. GTA Online, however, I don't mind playing now. Until roaming gangs of players mercilessly and systematically hunt me down. Actually, that's kind of hilarious, in retrospect.
