GTA 5 PC release petition passes 350,000 signature milestone

Luke Johnson



Ahead of tomorrow’s GTA 5 release date, a petition looking to persuade publisher Rockstar to make a GTA 5 PC release has hit a new milestone, topping the 350,000 signatures marker.

With the most hotly anticipated game of the year set to land for Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles tomorrow, September 17, publisher Rockstar has still yet to confirm the GTA 5 PC release that so many gamers have called for.

In a bid to put pressure on the developer to bring the eagerly awaited game to PC, a petition was started earlier this year, with more than 350,000 signatures having now been palced as an attempt to see a GTA 5 PC release become a reality.

Entitled simply “Rockstar: Release GTA 5 on PC,” the petition has a staggering 365,450 supporters at the time of writing, a considerable chunk of the 500,000 signatures target.

“Please release GTA V on PC,” the petition reads. “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.”

The digital plea adds: “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.”

The GTA 5 PC release petition has garnered steady support since launch, and continues to grow at a healthy rate. At the end of July, the GTA 5 PC release petition had just hit 225,000 signatures, with more than 135,000 added in the past six weeks.

While a GTA 5 PC release is still missing, gamers have also been left perturbed that the game is yet to be confirmed for next-gen consoles. With both the Xbox One and PS4 release dates scheduled for this November, Rockstar looks set to overlook the incoming consoles to focus on a last big hurrah for the outgoing gamers.

PC is the Most proper of all consoles, It is the oldest game console, And most powerful game console, As-well as the most modifiable and customizable game console. The only real answer for any Intelligent Gamer.

Are you serious? Personal computers have been around and used to play games long before playstation or Xbox. Not to mention the fact that an Xbox is a very basic computer. The average PC is more powerful then a console, hell my PC is 3 years old now and still has more than twice the power of an Xbox. Get a clue.

How is PC not a proper game console? It's been around since before Xbox and Playstation, plus can do more than gaming.

We did, it's called a PC.

ROCK STAR? many people are playing on pc so why to take a chance to play GTA V on pc?


September 17, 2013, 4:10 am

What powers those "game consoles" again.....oh wait, PC components.


September 17, 2013, 4:22 am

Sorry to burst your bubble but Rockstar will most likely release a PC version for GTA V, they have done for every other previous version so why wouldn't they for this one?

From a business stand point it would be silly not to release it for PC as well.

Keep saying to yourself there will be no release for PC but be prepared for a shock the day it drops!

Can't wait for you to see how wrong you are :D

Fred, you are a moron. The best possible platform is PC. The PC is the most powerful, with arguably the best controls. A console, is just a shitty, locked down PC with many restricted features. Plus, I know I will only ever buy GTA 5 on PC. I'll borrow it for console.

There WILL be a PC release. Quit wasting internet space and enjoy the crap graphics and loading times on your console.


September 17, 2013, 6:35 am

This petition has more signatures than most of the petitions on the site in less than a few days...


September 17, 2013, 7:05 am

PC, Will always be better than consoles, Quit your whining and experience real gaming, With real graphic detail and high speed processors ;)


September 17, 2013, 9:06 am

Moreover, outdated PC components.


September 17, 2013, 9:38 am

Just bide our time, it will come


September 17, 2013, 11:03 am

They'll surely release it for pc once the console game sales come down.If they release it right now most of the people won't even buy and play the pirated pc game


September 17, 2013, 12:26 pm

I'll vote for PC,


September 17, 2013, 2:10 pm

my bro and me have been with gta throughout all the years. We don't own a console and he was really upset about rockstar not announcing a pc release....its the first time i've seen him cry in years. Rockstar, PLEASE hear our calls and release gta 5 on the platform that it was created on!


September 17, 2013, 2:18 pm

I'm not buying the xbox version...I want it for PC and that's what I'm waiting for, and not so I can pirate or mod the game. I just have a really good gaming computer and that's what I game on.


September 17, 2013, 2:22 pm

Releasing on PC would give them 20-30 million dollars in sales.


September 17, 2013, 3:24 pm

True that. Better on the high end pc, much better graphics
