Publisher Rockstar has once again played down reports of an upcoming GTA 5 PC release, stating that it is focussed only on PS3 and Xbox 360.
Discussing the possibility of a GTA 5 PC release later this year with fans via its official Newswire page, a Rockstar spokesperson has stated that the company is “currently focused on Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.”
Having this week unveiled a trio of new GTA 5 trailers, each one focussing on one of the game’s three lead protagonists, Rockstar has repeatedly come under scrutiny for what platforms the latest Grand Theft Auto instalment will support, with delays to the game putting the launch in the midst of the expected PS4 and Xbox 720 arrival.
“We’re currently focused on Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the game and don’t have any details to share about the possibility of a PC version at this time,” the Rockstar spokesperson stated.
Although not completely ruling out the possibility of a future GTA 5 PC release, Rockstar previously teased that it would consider all avenues for the its next flagship title, hinting that GTA 5 could launch for everything from the core consoles and Wii U to the likes of iPhone and Android devices.
Stating that “everything else is up for consideration,” Dan Houser, Vice President of Rockstar Games last year said: “We are a third-party publisher. We’re not Nintendo, we’re not Sony, we’re not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there’s the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market.”
He added: “If that’s on Apple we put something on Apple. Wherever it might be. I think that’s the fun in what we do. We see ourselves as a content company that uses technology. We don’t make it; we use it to make the most fun stuff.”
While the title is currently unconfirmed for a PC based arrival, recent GTA 5 PC release rumours suggested systems would require a hefty 16GB of RAM in order to fully run the Rockstar published offering.
