Rockstar job listing hints at possible GTA 5 PC release
Every main GTA game has, after some form of delay, made its way to PC. There's every reason to expect Grand Theft Auto V will do the same. But while you won't ever hear Rockstar say that, you will be able to glean tantalising hints from their job openings. Rockstar Leeds recently posted a listing for a Graphic Programmer, whose responsibilities would include bringing the studio's "latest titles" to PC.
"Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform. Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."
The posting also makes mention of "working with skilled developers on Next Generation games", which suggests that Rockstar are planning to support the PC well into the life-cycle of the upcoming console boxes. Of course, they could win themselves a whole bunch of good will if they just said that directly to PC fans, maybe using words instead of dispassionate silence.
Let's take a look at which of Rockstar's "latest" released and announced titles have yet to make their way to PC:
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Red Dead Redemption
Personally, given the choice, I'd probably prefer for an RDR release to finally make its way to us. But then, I do have an unreasonable amount of love for Westerns. As always, the safe bet is on Grand Theft Auto V joining its PC brethren the standard six or so months after its console release.
Thanks, Rockstar Watch.
