According to Nvidia, GTA V Will Be Coming to PC
With the latest generation consoles (the Xbox One and Playstation 4, respectively) both deciding to use AMD as their graphics solution, some gamers have wondered if they’ll be left out in the cold with Nvidia, and with PC gaming in general. But a recently uncovered earnings call transcript from within Nvidia shows that they believe PC sales are doing quite well, and that their company will be benefiting from a number of top tier PC titles in the near future.
What’s truly interesting about this is that Nvidia mentions Grand Theft Auto V as one of those titles. GTA V, set to release toward the end of this year (just in time for Christmas, which is no accident) will having you playing in a huge sandbox environment that Rockstar games has touted as being bigger than several of their previous games combined. The only think that they haven’t made a definitive mention of is the availability of the title as a PC game.
What Does This Mean for PC Gamers?
It hasn’t been directly confirmed by either Rockstar or Nvidia, but consider the the wording used in the earnings call transcript. “In contrast, gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin’s Creed IV.” This seems to strongly indicate that Nvidia believe that these titles will all see PC releases.
This is great news for PC gamers, as GTA V promises to be an excellent sandbox title, with Rockstar doing everything they can to make sure that each core element of their previous games gets a distinct improvement in this current title.
With any hope, someone will come forward to confirm or deny this rumor within the month.
