Could the GTA V PC petition actually work?

1 min read


Just a few months ago, I would have told you that online petitions – especially ones aimed at gaming companies –  were like pissing against the wind; an entirely futile endeavour. However, they have seemed to work, with Dark Souls hitting the PC after a petition drive, and Nintendo localising a bunch of Japanese games after the successful Operation Rainfall campaign. The petition to bring GTA V to PC that we told you about last year might actually work.

For one thing, it has amassed over 200 000 signatures to date – quite an increase over the 40, 000 it had back then; though it still needs another 90 000–odd scribbles before it get sent to Rockstar.

“Please release GTA V on PC. GTA games have been a large part of so many people’s lives and it’s a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform,” says the petition. “Things like modifications have always been a HUGE part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have.”

I’d like to believe that GTA V is indeed headed to gaming PCs the world over – just probably a little after it has some time to shine on the current crop of consoles.

Recent job listings at Rockstar and leaked pre-order retail listings certainly hint at it being at least a possibility. There’s no way that Rockstar would make one of their largest, most incredible games and then not bring it to PC, right?
