No, there is no GTA V PC beta

1 min read


Grand Theft Auto, last year’s best selling game is for now, stuck on the old consoles. It may or may not be coming to Pc, and even the new machines from Sony and Microsoft. Rockstar hasn’t confirmed a damned thing. People  though, want to believe. Which is why some of them have been dumb enough to get suckered by the latest GTA V Pc scam, promising beta invites.

Here’s what the latest scam looks like..and it doesn’t even look remotely legitimate, sporting questionable language that seems to have its origins in eastern Europe somewhere.


“You invited Beta tester GTA V to Windows.

Registered this link with the promotion code” says the mail.

Naturally, the attached file contains malware, and anybody dumb enough to fall for this probably deserves to have all of their money siphoned. That’s very much the same thing that happened to people who downloaded “GTA V for PC” via torrents n October last year.

"Even though the existence of a PC version of GTA V is an unproven rumor, cybercriminals still managed to make convincing bait out of it.  We recently found a spam campaign making the rounds; this one claims that the user has been invited to the GTA V PC beta test," security firm Trend Labs stated in an official statement.

Quite simply, until Rockstar says otherwise, assume GTA V for PC doesn’t exist.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
