A PC version for Grand Theft Auto V will be coming “this fall” according to technology manufacturer Nvidia.
The graphics card producer may have let the news slip during an earnings call for the company’s second quarter for 2014.
“The PC market is evolving as entry level laptops face pressure from tablets,” Nvidia’s Chris Evenden explained to investors. “Yet sales of speciality 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.”
“But much of this can be better served by a tablet. In contrast,” Evenden continued, “gamers are preparing their systems for a stronger roster of games coming this fall. Including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin’s Creed IV”
For many developers and manufacturers, Nvidia and its rival, AMD, are the go-to companies for powering their software. With a technological beast such as Grand Theft Auto V, it’s likely that if anyone knew of a PC version coming, it would be them.
However, Rockstar has been very adamant about the game coming only to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 despite many calls for a PC port which includes a petition. There have also been previous rumours of the game coming to PC anyway.
