GTA V is coming to PC

2 min read


The most anticipated game for this year, for most gamers anyway, is Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V. somehow, even though GTA IV was in many ways pretty terrible, people are hyped to hell about the game’s sequel. People who aren’t PC gamers, that is – because the game’s not coming to their preferred platform. Only it’s starting to look like it is.

Not one, but two European retailers have suddenly started listing a PC version of the wanton criminality and hooker-killing simulator, according to neoGAF. Both Amazon Germany and Austria’s GamesOnly have the game listed for a PC release, with Gamesonly also listing a (now pulled) special edition for PC, which included the following:

  • SteelBook with exclusive artwork
  • World map
  • Stunt-planes challenges
  • Online-store concessions
  • Bonus outfits
  • Bonus tattoos
  • Special abilities booster
  • Exclusive weapons

It’s quite unlikely that they’ve just made it all up, instead probably receiving the as yet unconfirmed info from the German and Austrian distributor of the game. Of course, we all expected that the game would hit Pc at some point; every single GTA game (barring the mobile ones) have found a home on PC, albeit a few months later than their console counterparts.

GTA V is scheduled for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17. My money says it’ll be hitting “next gen” consoles and Pc not too long afterwards.

Editor. 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.

    Wow this is such beeeeg news….NOOOOOT

    There can be no GTA if its not on PC its just one of those titles that works better on PC

  • Deon Steyn

    At least now the graphics with the gameplay that they’ve shown thus far makes sense.

    • DarthofZA

      It always made sense, rerelease for the Xbox and PS4. I called it over a year ago, just wait and see!

  • Trebzz

    So will they press the Enter button to get into a car and the space button to jump or shoot? But anyways screw PC soon they will get a petition to get Beyond and Last of Us to PC lol

    • Uberutang

      Xbox 360 controller + PC = Bliss

      • Admiral Chief Achievement

        Mouse + KB + PC = Heavenly bliss of awesomeness

        • Uberutang

          LOL true, but some ported stuff works better with the controller.

          • XBOX controllers suck

          • FoxOneZA – The Chosen One

            Especially fighting, driving and platform games.

    • Trevor Davies

      Just like we got Dark Souls, then all will be well with the world 😀

    • As a PC gamer, I have no interest in any of those two games for PC 🙂 Dark Souls was worth it, those two aren’t even released.

    • Boet

      lol, I literally use the some controller for my pc and my xbox and I play it on my beeg tv at 1080p maximus uber details. People still dont know this?

  • GTA V coming to PC…

    • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

      Upvote. Also…..YYYEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

      • HEHE thanks. Make me want to high-five a jungle cat! 😎

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew


  • oh yeah!!

  • ElimiNathan


  • Finally!!! Now I can schedule my pc upgrade =D

  • Admiral Chief Achievement

    No surprise here

  • Uberutang

    Unrated 18+ edition. Hells yeah.

  • They’ve been fucking up the PC side since they took a year to release San Andreas… Which is a shame, because they really started on the PC, and you wouldn’t believe the amount of people that still plays San Andreas on their PCs. GTA IV was an awful port, and part of the reason why they never ported RDR.

    Hopefully they will deliver this time. And silly people, it can always be played with a pad, we just want the real graphics 😉

  • Admiral Chief Achievement



      Obviously this is aimed at WIIU players?

      • Admiral Chief Achievement

        Nope, to all naysayers of TEH PC

        • CODDAMIT

          Agreed, though most of the more intellegent people agreed that it would come to the PC eventually.

          • Admiral Chief Achievement

            Yeah, agreed.

            Lets hope TLOU comes to PC as well

          • CODDAMIT

            And beyond two souls

  • If this is only going to be on next gen consoles I’m going to be pissed!

  • matthurstrsa


  • Why i am not amazed.
