On March 9, retailer GameStop may have confirmed “GTA 5” will be hitting the PC soon. A listing for the 2013 action-adventure title appeared in the PowerUp Rewards area of GameStop’s website. Using PowerUp Rewards during trade-ins and purchases allow GameStop buyers to earn points that can be redeemed for in-store rewards.


Earlier this month, a PS4 version of “Grand Theft Auto V” popped up as available for pre-order on, leaving gamers to wonder if Rockstar’s action-adventure title will hit shelves sometime in 2014.

On Feb. 4, showed the title as being available on June 13 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Though many eager gamers were hoping for a PC and next-gen release, the PC cover art was somewhat suspicious. The cover read: “Games For Windows Live,” the collective name for a set of services and software Microsoft no longer uses.

Leaked footage of the game may have appeared online in mid-January. User warrockteam1 posted the clip, claiming it showed gameplay from a PC version of “GTA V.” The video was quickly removed, with YouTube claiming copyright infringement from NYC-based Take-Two Interactive, the publisher that owns Rockstar.

While some users suspected the clip was fake, others wondered if the gameplay could be an early version of a PC edition of “Grand Theft Auto V.” Thiago Diniz, CEO of Rio de Janeiro-based electronic distributor Nuuvem, confirmed that the title was coming to the PC in March. “I see no problem talking. I think until now been confirmed. Is scheduled for March on PC, if I’m not mistaken, for the 12th,” he said to Brazilian website Condigo Fonte.

An additional “GTA V” PC rumor began when a retailer in Norway stated that the game would be released on March 18 this year and was already available for pre-order. The same launch date was mentioned by an Amazon rep, who promised Rockstar would make an announcement by the end of 2013. When the game developer remained tight-lipped, many fans began to doubt the rumored launch date.

“Grand Theft Auto V” launched last October for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and is an open-world action game developed by Scotland-based Rockstar North and published by NYC-based Rockstar Games. “GTA V,” which received highly favorable reviews, was the 15th installment in the “GTA” series and the first game since 2008’s “GTA IV.” The Spike Video Game Awards gave the title the Most Anticipated Game award in 2012. Following its release, the game received the Game of the Year award at the 2013 Golden Joystick Awards. Only three days following its release, IGN listed “GTA V” as second on its list of “Top 25 Xbox 360 Games.”

Rockstar’s  Red Dead Redemption  is one of the best around and fans are expecting Rockstar to create a sequel to this highly successful franchise.

Rockstar’s only just brought out its latest game, but it’s already thinking of releasing another episode of another title, according to info gleaned from the LinkedIn profile of a senior engineer from Rockstar Games.

GTA 5 has been out for a couple of months now, so this “famous IP” is unlikely to be GTA 6. Many are looking at the Red Dead Redemption franchise, and this makes a lot of sense. We’d all love to see Red Dead Redemption 2, and if the leak is right, we might see it by next autumn.

So, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be out on the next-generation machines, and we will probably see Rockstar bringing out its unique brand of graphics into an open world display.



Looks like Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 on PC will happen sooner than anticipated, based on the overwhelming demand for it, as evidenced by an online petition, which already has more than 600,000 signatures.

The said online petition is aimed at convincing Rockstar Games, the developer and publisher of GTA 5, to release a PC version of the popular game.

Last 2012, the petition only had about 40,000 signatures, then it grew to 470,000 in mid-September 2013. And, it never stopped growing. Now, about 612,149 signatures can be found on the online petition.

Based on the history of Grand Theft Auto games being released for PC, GTA 5 fans should expect GTA 5 PC in early to mid-2014 because the older GTA game Grand Theft Auto 4 was released about 6 or 7 months after the console version designed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles was released.

Despite the rumours swirling around on when the GTA 5 PC version will be made and released, some fans still can’t help but worry that it will never happen. This is because some Rockstar Games, such as Red Dead Redemption was never released on PC.

But, GTA 5 and PC fans need not worry because according to PC Gamer, Chris Silva, Intel notebooks’ director of marketing said that GTA 5 won’t be exclusively available for console.

“I don’t think it’ll be console-exclusive very long. But that’s what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content,” Silva said.
