The prospects of a PC version of GTA 5 appear to be in a terrifying state of flux. After seeming to be a dead cert earlier this year, doubts emerged when the game's posters confirmed only a console release . Now asked directly about a PC version by IGN , Rockstar's Dan Houser would no more commit to that platform than he would Wii U.
A potential PC version is only "up for consideration," he said. "That's all I can give you. The main thing is we are not... we are a third-party publisher. We're not Nintendo, we're not Sony, we're not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there's the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market."
So, uh, does that mean there's an appropriate business opportunity on PC, then? Houser didn't say. He did however say that the current geriatric generation of creaking console hardware is ample enough to see out their creative intentions.
"Some other people talk about the limitations of the [current] hardware. We don't feel there are that many limitations. We feel we can do some very impressive stuff and do it for a large audience. This felt like the way... There'll be a much larger audience on PS3 than there will be on PS4."
Erp. What worrying words. Here's hoping Houser's just being cagey.
