70,000 Sign For PC Version Of GRAND THEFT AUTO V

Recently Rockstar Games released their second trailer for the hugely anticipated Grand Theft Auto V as well as a whole load of exciting news. Included in the news was the platforms that the game would be released on- PS3 and Xbox 360. No PC. Rockstar have often left PC fans out in the cold for considerable time before releasing games on PC like GTA IV which came nearly eight months after its console counterpart. One of Rockstar’s greatest successes, Red Dead Redemption, has yet to appear on PC (and may never will) much to the dismay of PC gamers like myself. However, in recent move to prompt a PC adaptation of GTA V 70,000 gamers have a signed a petition pleading for a PC port.

The petition reads:

To:
Rockstar Games
Please release GTA V on PC. GTA games have been a large part of so many peoples lives and it’s a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform. 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.I hope you consider the release of GTA V on PC as it’ll make many people very happy!
The petition aim is to have 100,000 signatures then to be delivered to Rockstar. However is this effort all in vain?  A Rockstar statement read that “for those asking about the PC platform, we’re currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don’t have any details to share about a PC version at this time”. On the contrary Rockstar’s Dan Houser told IGN that “everything else is up for consideration”. GTA V is due to be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in Spring 2013.
