While it’s expected to arrive on PCs at some point, Nvidia has alluded to the fact that Rockstar’s open-world crime game, GTA 5, will be arriving on PCs in the not too distant future.
Speaking at a company earnings call, Senior IR Director of Nvidia, Chris Evenden, said that PC gamers are preparing their rigs for upcoming PC releases, and mentioned GTA 5 as one of them.
“The PC market is evolving. As entry level laptops face pressure from tablets. Yet sales of specialty PCs like gaming systems and work stations continue to grow. The disparity reflects how consumers use these different classes of PCs. Many consumers look for PC as a general purpose device they can use for browsing, e-mail, social media, video. But much of this can be better served by a tablet,” said Evenden.
“In contrast, gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V, and Assassin’s Creed IV.”
Given Rockstar’s history of PC releases, GTA V will likely hit PCs at some point after the console releases, as other titles such as GTA 4 and Max Payne 3 saw this trend.
Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on 17 September 2013 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
