We know, we know; GTA V will eventually come to the PC. Even though Rockstar has not revealed anything yet, it’s almost certain that this new sandbox title will hit our beloved platform. After all, that’s what Nvidia has also claimed. During an earnings call – spotted by CraveOnline and translated by SeekingAlpha – Chris Evenden, Senior IR Director of Nvidia, said that GTA V will be coming to the PC this Fall.
As Evenden claimed:
“The PC market is evolving. As entry level laptops face pressure from tablets. Yet sales of specialty PCs like gaming systems and work stations continue to grow. The disparity reflects how consumers use these different classes of PCs. Many consumers look for PC as a general purpose device they can use for browsing, email, social media video. But much of this can be better served by a tablet. In contrast, gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin’s Creed IV.”
It’s pretty obvious that Nvidia has inside information about GTA V PC. And to be honest, it would not surprise us if a PC build was already in the works. For all we know, Nvidia may have been optimizing its drivers for this title these past months. Or not.
Still, at this point, we’ve got a lot of clues hinting at a PC release of GTA V. And it will be coming as every ‘major’ GTA title has found its way on the PC. Question now is whether this new GTA V will be better optimized on the PC – than its predecessor – and whether it will be as friendly to mods as GTA IV.
