When Rockstar Games confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V is set to debut at some point around spring of next year the only two platforms confirmed at the time were the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, putting into question whether or not a PC version would be happening.
Although Rockstar hasn’t said that Grand Theft Auto Vwon’t be coming to the PC, they haven’t said that it would, either. Sparked by all of the uncertainty, one gamer took it upon himself to start up a petition to make PC gamers heard.
Since starting over a week ago, the petition has already managed to rake in just under 70,000 supporters, with more support pouring in every day.
“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,” wrote Mike Julliard, the gamer behind the Grand theft Auto V PC petition.
Following the original announcement confirming Grand Theft Auto V‘s spring 2013 release date, Rockstar had this to say about the prospects of a PC version: “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.”
With the (unfortunate) exception of Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar has been fairly good about getting their games on the PC platform, albeit often some time after its release on consoles.
There’s hope, but not much hope that a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V will ship day-and-date with the console versions.
