Another retailer lists next-gen GTA V

It's the same old song.

Because you can’t kick a good rumour, more “evidence” has popped up suggesting that Grand Theft Auto V will be making its way to new platforms. A couple of European retailers have started accepting orders for GTAV on platforms that have yet to have officially announced ports.

According to Eurogamer Portugal, Portuguese retailer Worten is accepting pre-orders for Grand Theft Auto V’s PlayStation version, while Czech retailer SuperGamer is taking pre-orders for the Xbox One and PC versions of the murder simulator du jour.

Eurogamer Portugal contacted Worten for clarification, to be told:

"On the issue that got us, we would inform you that we have the information that Worten stores will sell the game in question."

I have absolutely no idea what that means. Worten doesn’t list a release date, but the sneaky Czech’s say the game will be available on June 13, 2014; a Friday, which is the day games get released in Europe.

Of course without any announcement from Rockstar, this all needs to be taken with a rather large boulder of salt. On that front, the company’s remaining mum. quizzed on the matter last month, Rockstar’s parent company Take 2 reiterated that it had nothing to share.

“At this point there is really nothing for us to say about that… We haven’t announced anything as it relates to any of the platforms versus what’s out there."

The only thing that would get me to play this again would be the inevitable mods that will grace the PC version. what modders managed to do with GTA IV on Pc – despite it being an unoptimised mess – is quite frankly incredible, and I can’t wait to see what they do with GTA V when it hits PC.

        Dont worry, with the game prices for the current gen console games they wont be able to afford games ether.

        Fun times, you have a nice big black box with no games because they are too expensive 😉

      Technically it would have to release ten years ago, because the “next-gen” consoles are already behind on the pc’s again.

            I am sure it will come out, though the stats of them saying they don’t need to spend the money porting as they have made more than god off just the consoles is a concern.

            God didn’t too well. Didn’t even leave his son an empire. Just a trade. How much did he expect a carpenter to make? Really?! Outrageous inheritance. If you had to put a sum total or value in Gods ledger, I doubt it’s anything special. We should rather say they made more money than Bill Gates.

      “then they can see what the fuss was all about.”

      Implying that the fuss (and madhouse) is over. It’ll never be the same again. We’ll never really experience the madness of the day 1 launch of GTA Online. But as long as I get to play the game online just once, I’ll be happy, before I die. 😛

        GTA online is a great game online but without the online heists isn’t what they showed off in the trailers for it. I haven’t played in months due to that.
