The thought of Grand Theft Auto V, one of the biggest and highest rated video games ever, not be coming to the PC is enough to make some hardcore gamers hemorrhage. Sadly, there is a small chance that PC gamers will miss out on the massive, open world shenanigans the game has to offer. John Hoffberger, chairman of Rockstar's hired marketing firm Rantic, told Fox Weekly that he is doubtful a PC version of GTA V will be released, stating:
"The next-gen console launch dates are still intact, but the PC game launch has been agitating for Rockstar staff."Apparently, Rockstar never intended to make a PC version of the game, but changed their mind after "high public demand." Now the company seems to be backtracking, which is unfortunate considering it originally set high goals for the port:
"Grand Theft Auto V for PC will take full advantage of the power of PC to deliver across-the-board enhancements including increased resolution and graphical detail, denser traffic, greater draw distances, upgraded AI, new wildlife, and advanced weather and damage effects for the ultimate open world experience."Upon reading Rantic’s statements, angry GTA fans apparently flooded the company’s website, forcing it to shut down.
