It looks as though graphics card gurus Nvidia might have accidentally let the cat out of the bag and inadvertently confirmed a PC release for GTA V "this fall".
"The PC market is evolving as entry level laptops face pressure from tablets," said Nvidia's senior director of investor relations Chris Evenden, speaking during the firm's Q2 2014 earnings call last week. "Yet sales of speciality PCs like gaming systems and work stations continue to grow. The disparity reflects how consumers use these different classes of PCs. Many consumers look for PC as a general purpose device they can use for browsing, email, social media and video.
"But much of this can be better served by a tablet. In contrast, gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Assassin's Creed 4."
Given that GTA IV has enjoyed a great degree of longevity thanks to some hilarious creations from the modding community, it's unsurprising that there have been rumours of a PC version for GTA V for some time. However, Rockstar have remained tight-lipped on the subject even though there've been multiple retailer listings from earlier this year for the product.
We'll have to wait and see, needless to say that we've pinged Rockstar an email asking for comment. [VG]
