Grand Theft Auto V will be released on PC at the start of 2014, Eurogamer has reported.
Citing multiple industry sources, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is said to be coming within the first quarter of 2014.
The release window is said to mirror Grand Theft Auto IV, which Rockstar released on consoles in April 2008 before bringing it to PC in December that year.
Since launching on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17, Grand Theft Auto V made $1 billion in revenue in its first three days on sale.
Chip maker Intel yesterday said it expects to see GTAV on PC. Intel director of marketing Chris R. Silva said, “At least with Grand Theft Auto, I don’t think it’ll be console-exclusive very long. But that’s what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content.”
Silva added that the reason Rockstar hasn’t yet announced GTAV on PC is because “Somebody paid a lot of money to make sure that title was exclusive.”
A Change.org petition for a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is now close to breaking 600,000 signatures.
