No PC Version of GTA V At Launch: Rockstar

Our suspicions from a pre-order poster leak earlier this week are confirmed, there won't be a PC version of GTA V any time soon. The Spring 2013 launch date given by Rockstar only includes versions for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 platforms. Pre-orders for the game will begin next week, starting Monday. When Rockstar posted its pre-order announcement, everyone in the comments section had one question on their minds - will there be a PC version? This prompted Rockstar to respond in a comment, and not update the actual news article (adding insult to injury), that there won't be a PC version any time soon.
Hey guys, glad to see so much enthusiasm about the release announcement. 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. Anyone that continues to spam the comments section will have their commenting privileges suspended.

Rockstar is a console developer. GTA III was a port. Vice City was a port. San Andreas was a port. GTA IV was a port. Bully was a port. Manhunt 2 was a port. L.A Noir was a port. Midnight Club was a port.

Yep sadly its true. Even though they were ports, they still played fairly decent especially since they modified vice city and SA with mouse fire support and it made gameplay MUCH better than the PS2/Xbox versions. Then only issues were the frame limiters and choppy rates even on higher end cards.

I have no idea why people are surprised. This is how its ALWAYS been with Rockstar. If it was DICE and this was BF4 I would be blown away but, this is par for the course for Rockstar.

yeah sometimes the ports are okay.

after Rockstar ported GTA III and Vice City to the PC they did it one more time for the XBOX and added a lot of graphic and audio enhancements the PC never got. it's called the Grand Theft Auto Double Pack.

Why would they list it on the French website and not the USA website? I don't see a date on the French site either. A mistake, me thinks.

I do wish Red Dead Redemption does come out for PC but no huge loss.
Still would have preferred it to GTAIV though.
Bully took ages before it came out on PC and it turned out to be a fine game for me.

Makes sense to me that they would come out with console versions before the PC. Hopefully the reason is that making it for the xbox 1st then improving on that for the pc release which i have no issue with what so ever if that's the reason..

To make a PC game it has to be so much more time consuming there for logically the pc would be late release unless they gave you xbox kinda graphics or delayed the console version which cannot be good.

My god, Bully took 2 years for Wii, Xbox, and PC versions and 6 freakin' years for a PS3 version!? Anyway I have yet to play Red Dead.

I have played a little of Red Dead Redemption and found it a worthy title of making it for PC.
I played it on PS3 and have to say the graphics in the back ground were much left to be desired.
It's passable none the less, mainly due to gameplay.

I bought LA Noire on PS3 on the basis that RDR didnt come out on PC.

LA Noire did, and was very quickly £3.50 in a steam sale *mad*

I enjoyed that game on the PS3 and if it did come out on release or they had said it would of i would of waited and probably picked it up near full price.

Sad part is that game was a lot of fun and that's from some one who don't like consoles

I bought it thinking it would be like GTA.
Lucky I bought it on sale.

Pretty good story though.

Just wish there were more side missions.
Would have been nice to race the old skool cars.
