News: GTAIV: San Andreas Beta 3 is out now


If you're one of the many fans that prefer the Grand Theft Auto experience on a desktop PC rather than a console, we believe we may have enough to allow you to breathe a sigh of relief knowing that we've finally got some (although, very little) information regarding Grand Theft Auto V for PC.

During NVIDIA's Q2 2014 Earnings Conference Call late last week, details regarding a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V may have been accidentally mentioned by one of NVIDIA's own - Chris Evenden - Senior Director of Investor Relations. On the conference call, Chris opens up the discussion with a few of the changes in the PC gaming market, eventually leading into the claim that gamers are currently looking to upgrade their systems in order to properly experience blockbuster titles releasing on PC this fall. One of the titles mentioned by NVIDIA happened to be Grand Theft Auto V. (transcribed by Seeking Alpha and uncovered by CraveOnline)

 

"The PC market is evolving. As entry level laptops face pressure from tablets. Yet sales of specialty PCs like gaming systems and work stations continue to grow. The disparity reflects how consumers use these different classes of PCs. Many consumers look for PC as a general purpose device they can use for browsing, email, social media video. But much of this can be better served by a tablet. 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." - Chris Evenden - Senior Director of Investor Relations - NVIDIA

Chris mentions Grand Theft Auto V without hesitation as he announces some of the major titles releasing on PC later this year. Could this have been a possible slip-up revealing the release of Grand Theft Auto V on PC? We're convinced that NVIDIA might know a thing or two that we don't in regards to any possibility of GTA V releasing on PC. Considering that this information from NVIDIA is indeed true, we find it very surprising that there will be a possibility of a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V later this year - sooner than any of us may have expected. Granted, NVIDIA may be hinting at a PC version of GTA V that doesn't exist. However, it certainly doesn't match up with our findings last month in regards to Rockstar Leeds looking for more PC talent.

We're convinced that there is some truth behind NVIDIA's words. We can always hope, can't we?
