Rockstar will release a PC version of their open world, action-adventure, Grand Theft Auto V in first quarter of 2014, according to a report.
The game sold 15 million copies worldwide, broke few records and earned more than $1 billion in its first three days on sale, currently only available for Xbox 360 and PS3.
The release plan is similar to GTA IV’s April 2008 launch, which released on PC after console release in December 2008.
In a different interview, Intel’s Director of Marketing, Chris R. Silva told PC gamer, “I think it hurt Halo overall,” he referenced it to Microsoft’s failed attempts to keep it console-exclusive and then poorly porting to the PC.
“At least with Grand Theft Auto I don’t think it’ll be console exclusive very long. But that’s what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content.”
Silva adds, “Somebody paid a lot of money to make sure that title was exclusive. PC gaming market is pretty big and Rockstar would be crazy not to want to cash in on the money being spent on our platform.”
“The PC gaming ecosystem just continues to grow,” said Silva. “If you look at the amount of revenue that is generated by PC gaming it’s in the tens of billions of dollars each year. It’s incredibly diverse and rich and that’s it’s greatest strength,” he concluded.
