GTA 5 release date officially set for "Spring 2013" on consoles, PC not mentioned

Rockstar have announced that GTA 5 will be released during springtime next year "for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3," confirming that the GTA 5 posters that leaked out earlier this week were correct. Unfortunately, there's no mention of a PC version on the posters or in Rockstar's post .

This doesn't mean that GTA 5 will go the same way as Red Dead Redemption, it took Grand Theft Auto 4 eight months to make it onto PC and we had to wait six months for LA Noire. GTA IV shipped with an extra video editor on PC, Noire had “increased resolution and graphical detail” on PC and Max Payne 3 didn't look too shabby either. We may get a PC date yet. Here's hoping it's a better port than GTA 4 was.
