GTA V PC community gets excited by Rockstar developer tweets

gta V

After last week’s failed pre-order release date we’re still none the wiser as to when a GTA V PC will be released. It’s a complete mystery that’s frustrating PC gamers who are gagging to get stuck into the game.

Site visitor¬†Markomts points us in the direction of some interesting tweets from Rockstar developer John Diaz who almost lets the cat out the bag. It’s not exactly clear what he’s hinting at but it’s intriguing nevertheless.

When probed on his Twitter over the GTA V PC version he posted:

This was then followed up by:

Not wanting to read between the lines here but it’s at least something new this week to get PC gamers’ hopes up. I think we can all agree it’s coming and it’s Rockstar that’s holding out on the announcement for now.

We were hoping that an announcement would be coming very soon and we thought a March release date could be possible based on previous GTA releases on the PC which are usually around six months after the console released. As time ticks on, a March release date is starting to look less likely but Rockstar may surprise us yet.

Indecently, the petition to bring the game to the PC has now reached over 666,000 signatures but perhaps Rockstar would like to see 1 million before they announce anything.

    It is high time for RockstarGames to comment on the rumours

      Agreed, it’s long overdue.

      I’d guess they’re not talking because it builds a lot of free hype. I can’t see any other reason why they wouldn’t just tell us it’s not gonna happen. Or maybe the consoles wanted it to be exclusive, Rockstar said no, but agreed to keep quiet about a pc version. I don’t know, but I think the silence is a good sign.

      Still, it would be nice to let us know.

        I would say it’s more of a situation where they don’t want to confirm because after making the PC community wait 6 months for a release any extra delays will result in loss of sales. Instead, if they wait to announce it until it’s ready, the hype will carry over to the release and they’ll have more sales that way.

          GTA IV came out on PC 7 months after console, all GTA games on PC are console ports don’t expect anything more than that from Rockstar. They have a very small budget for the PC development side of things since piracy plays a big factor into their investments. GTA V will kick serious *** on PC even as a port (GTA IV) because the community will create kick *** mods for it like iCEnhancer for example which will unlock its true capabilities. So just hoping Rockstar get the game on the market so we can start modding the **** out of it and basically make the game we want to play just like GTA IV :D.

    There is no valid reason for those bastards to hold off on at least announcing it will be available on the PC platform.

    I and everyone else can surely understand that the release date can only be announced when they are reasonably certain they can finish the game by the deadline.

    BUT THERE IS NO VALID REASON TO TREAT THEIR CUSTOMERS LIKE CHILDREN BY NOT EVEN ANNOUNCING IT WILL BE ON PC! >:-(

    Keeping customers in suspense is one thing.

    Tormenting them is something else entirely.

    It is rude and condescending to not even announce what platforms GTA V is going to be released on.

    They should at least say yay or nay to PC, XBox One and PS4.

    Tormenting the fans is not going to win them any points.

    Waiting for an announcement of the release date is acceptable.

    As I said, it will be done when it is done, and not before.

    But by NOT even letting us now what platforms we can expect is unacceptable, and whoever the asshole is at Take Two or Rockstar who insists on tormenting the fans of the franchise should be fucking
    fired!

        and WE are the PAYING consumer, without us they wouldn’t have jobs as developers. they have the right to do withhold their products without notice as developers, but we, as consumers, have the right to not have to put up with their bullshit or give them a dime. individuals like yourself are precisely the reason why these corporations continue to act the way they do. enjoy getting fuq’ed, you pansy.

          Well you are doing just that right now aren’t you? I mean as far as I can see, you aren’t spending a single dime on GTA V at the moment. No one is holding you back from having your little boycott. Quit complaining, the developers are people as well, and if they don’t want to announce sell it on PC they have all the reasons to do so. They in fact don’t have to deal with YOUR bullshit, which they are doing so far. Rockstar will still crank out enjoyable games and still keep their jobs without the PC community, look at Red Dead Redemption. I personally want GTA V on pc as well, and I hope they do announce it. But, seriously…just be patient, and if they don’t announce it, they don’t announce it. As simple as that, life’s unfair.

      So your telling us, PC gamers who some have spent maybe a year saving so they can go built a gaming PC, the ones who wants the best experience and the best visuals, to get stuffed? So we spend thousands of dollars just to get hated on by developers and have a gaming PC that is nothing more than a paperweight (thats one heavy duty paperweight :P) (exaggeration). Just because you cant be stuffed, too lazy or too poor to be in the master race, doesn’t mean that you can hate on us. Let’s have harmony between the PC race and the peasant console race :)

    last time, in GTA 4, nVidia has worked with the game company that made ATI/AMD GPU run bad.
    I hope the reverse can be happened in GTA V PC, just hate nvidia doing evil tricks on competitors.

    I’ll go pre order Watch_Dogs or w/e I suppose, and IF GTA V makes it to PC well….lets just say I’ll pirate it before I buy it. Or, I’ll just wait for it to go down to like 4.99$ on Steam. Rockstar can go fuck themselves at this point.

    I’ve been playing GTA since it was top down PC only. I remember the innovations that came later with an open world environment pioneered in GTA 3. They have forgotten their costumers clearly with a no PC release, seeing we built their hype and funded them with our purchases. I remember people asking me what game I was playing and I would say GTA; they would say I wish it was on my console. Like all mistakes of old forgetting were you come from will cost you. I will not be buying a priority slower computer i.e. PS,xbox, etc, just to play GTA. ~It’s Just One Game I wont Play~

      If it ever does come out for PC I won’t be paying $60 for it. I’ll wait until it’s $10 to buy it, which could mean years. When I first heard about GTA5 I was stoked, but after all this waiting I’ve truly lost interest. I’m not a hard core gamer anyway. I have however played all the Gta series, was hoping to play this one long before now. They’re in bed with the console companies, forcing people to go out and buy an Xbox that don’t already own one. LOL won’t work for me. Fuck you rock-star. I can have just as much fun watching all the videos of if on youtube.

    I for one would love GTA 5 at least announced for the XBOX 1, then i can finally put the xbox 360 back in in the attic,

    All you PC people have to wait because the game will be majorly pirated almost the second its released. and that will stop some people buying it on the 360 and PS3 if all released the same day.
    I quite often try out games on my PC before buying them for my Xbox. nothing worse than buying a game for £50 and not like it!

    XB1 and PS4 gamers have to wait because we are the minority they cant make as much money from the newer consoles as the older consoles simply because theres not enough people with next gen consoles yet. its not priority to get GTA ready when they are making so much from the other consoles. because they know when they do release it for PC, XB1 and PS4 everyone will go crazy and theyll make a shit load more money!

    The long and short of it rockstar and taketwo are trying to make as much money as they possibly can. In there world all publicity is good publicity. So they are probably loving everyone bitching about it! and watching the bank notes roll in even more

    I will buy it the day it becomes available on XB1 and i already have it on xbox360 because i caved and bought it because i couldnt wait.

    My two cents for what its worth
