GTA 5 PC edition tipped by Rockstar job listing

Rockstar Games may be looking to bring GTA 5 to PC gamers after all, if a recent job posting is to be believed.

Every GTA game to date has eventually made its way onto PC, but so far Rockstar has been very adamant it isn’t working on a PC edition of GTA 5 right now. However, a new job posting may suggest otherwise.

The job listing was for a Graphic Programmer at Rockstar Leeds, working to bring the developer’s “latest titles” to PC.

“Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform”, reads the full job listing. “Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible.”

Seeing as the latest published title that has yet to make it to PC is Red Dead Redemption, now over three years old, we presume Rockstar is talking about GTA 5.

Usually GTA PC ports arrive around six months after the console versions. GTA 5 is being released on September 17 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, so we could be seeing a PC version of the game around March 2014.

In a recent GTA 5 special Rockstar Asked & Answered session, Rockstar Games again reiterated their stance on a GTA 5 release for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC are not in development at present.

“The only versions of the game that we have announced are the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which are set for a September 17 worldwide release. We don’t have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now.”

For now, gamers across all platforms will have to content themselves with the new GTA 5 gameplay trailer, included below.
