Grand Theft Auto V PC Petition Garners 50K Signatures

November 27, 2012 -

While Grand Theft Auto V is coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year, Rockstar Games has said that other platforms such as the PC and Wii U are still "under consideration" at this time. This is apparently not a strong enough response from PC gamers who want the game on their preferred platform and in a timely fashion. To that end a petition on Change.org has been launched. So far that petition has over 50,000 signatures from gamers who want to see GTA V on the PC.

"Please release GTA V on PC," the petition begins. "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. Things like modifications have always been a huge part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have."

Most would argue that the petition isn't needed because Rockstar almost always releases a PC port later on down the road. It took the company 7 months to release the PC port of Grand Theft Auto IV, as an example. While PC gamers had to wait longer than everyone else, it did eventually happen - which is likely to happen again with GTA V...

Still, if you want to show your support for a PC version of the game, you can sign that petition here.

Why not launch it as a beta on the PS3 while you work on the optimized 360/PC versions ?


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

I even own all three consoles and I wont play GTA V until its on the PC. Some things just are better on the PC.

Re: Grand Theft Auto V PC Petition Garners 50K Signatures

eh, for me the only better part is the mods, and I don't care to mod GTA much.

Re: Grand Theft Auto V PC Petition Garners 50K Signatures

Similarly, I have Xbox, PS3 and PC, but we're talking about something completely subjective. I bought and played all the GTA games on PC up until GTA IV. It was great in that format because they finally got it right control-wise on consoles, unlike the earlier iterations. I personally would say it's better on the console for various reasons. I've no desire and see no incentive to go back to PC. Although note that this is not some sort of objection to them making a PC version. I just want to point out that 'better' is a relative term.

I find it sad that the game which started and gained popularity (and notoriety) on the PC platform, before making it's way to consoles, has shifted away from it's roots.
