GTAV due for PC in 2014, report claims

Insiders say GTA5 PC release date is months away

Rockstar is building a PC edition of Grand Theft Auto 5 that it expects to release in the first quarter of 2014, a new report claims.

The open-world crime opus, which is already believed to have sold 15 million copies worldwide, and broke all-time records by making $1 billion in three days, is currently only available on Xbox 360 and PS3.

What we'd like to see from a PC version of Rockstar's blockbuster

Yet "multiple industry sources" have told Eurogamer that the expansion to PC is due to arrive before April.

The release date gap between the console and PC editions of Grand Theft Auto 4 was eight months, and while many in the industry believe a PC version of GTAV is inevitable, Rockstar's relative quiet on the matter has led to a petition from gamers eager to see the game on desktops. That petition has now accumulated more than half a million signatures.

In July, Rockstar acknowledged questions regarding a possible PC version of GTAV, but said "we don't have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time".

The company said it was "completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now".

Rockstar did not explain whether a PC or next-gen edition was in its plans.
