GTA 5 PC & Next gen release date revealed!

Recommended Posts

So that's Rockstar giving the old consoles 18 months for everybody to buy it, and then hoping they'll buy it again for XB1 and PS4 (just in time for the Christmas rush), and then PC gamers can get the pretty version 2 months later.

I've waited this long, I can wait for it to be on sale for less than half price.

I'd wait a few years instead for a 5 bucks sale of it on steam. Come play star citizen in the meantime

Wouldn't it be way more efficient to design the "good" version of the graphics first, and then just turn down/off to meet the performance requirement for the lowest-end machine instead of effectively making the game twice?

 

Don't try and confuse people with your *gasp* logic...

 

Having already played and completely finished the GTA V campaign on the 360, I'm not sure what my motivation would be for playing it all over again - even on vastly improved graphics.

Giving the finger to the PC fans yet again.

If the PC release turns out to be utter crap after more than 16 months of waiting it's just going to be great.

I think it's funny how people don't understand that it takes time to develop a game... Looks like they just finished the Xbone and PS4 versions, people want the PC version to be good yet they don't want Rockstar to put effort into it. Makes sense.

Its funny how you dont understand marketing.

They offer bonuses for people who own it on ps3/360 and will buy it again on xbone/ps4

They delayed pc version again so people will buy it on both pc and xbone ( check how many comments like that exist on the video on yt)

You'll see the ps4/xbone version will not be that different than pc one, theres no reason to delay it EVEN MORE time on pc other than milking it as hard as they can


Hey there. You are looking mighty fine today, have my virtual cookie!  :ph34r:

Ahh, I'll buy it at a NOT high price. Seriously I already have a billion games I have to finish first I haven't even played Skyrim yet, by the time I get to this it'll be on a sale anyway.

 

Edit: Wait, they are delaying the PC version yet again? Never mind, Rockstart, not buying it. Ever.

"Coming Fall 2014" - GTA "Next gen" announcement trailer

 

"this release date has not changed" - Sep 1st 2014 (Developer's response to fan question)

 

"with the PC version to follow January 27, 2015." - September 12 2014

 

 

And Rockstar wonder why us PC gamers get pissed off and alot of people who were going to buy the game are now going to pirate it. Rockstar are blatantly delaying the game for some other reason than to polish the PC version.

nah rockstar can choke on my D.

Not only delaying it so people buy it on 360/ps3 and then delaying it even more for people to buy on xbone and ps4 and then on pc

10/10 will pirate

People like you are the reason certain devs avoid the PC in the first place.

Add to your dictionary : This fall = Next year

Very mad at marketing these days. only lies.

If the pc pre-order is on Christmas steam sale with over 30% discount then Maybe I vill forgive them.

Also they give us in-game $1000000, now is it hard to get that amount in GTA or are they being cheap fuckers instead of giving us a special gun/car/outfit ???

Seriously Rockstar? January 27th 2015 for the PC version and Nov. 18th for the "Next-gen" version ?

Just how much are Microsoft and Sony paying them to keep this game off PC?

They've got no technical reason to withhold the PC release while they release this game on two crippled APU based PCs (aka consoles).

They need to get it together, stop treating PC gamers as second class citizens just because we don't buy into locked hardware and ecosystems and pay $60 per game.

 

In short, I'm p****d off at them right now for yet again shunning the PC community.

Rockstar is tallented I give them that. They know how to deliver. But all this marketing bs making me sick. PC in January, after holidays? No wonder it will be pirated. Who the heck would like to pay after all this nonsense? I certainly won't. Not because I can't but because I refuse. Maybe when sales hit Summer '15... They have lost my custom with this GTA. That's for sure.

1 year, 4 months, and 10 days. Is this a record for time span between original and PC release?

They did the cost analysis, probably a lot cheaper to bring out an x64 PC game when you're co-developing with x64 consoles rather than independently developing it from PowerPC powered last gen consoles.

 

It's not like they flat refused to make a PC version.

But they only did a PC version due to us demanding it. Otherwise, from what I heard, they never would have bothered with PC and stuck with consoles.

Not they didn't, they didn't see some petition or the bitching on Reddit 12 months ago and think "oh, shit", we better cook up a PC version. They would have been developing it alongside PS4 and XBOne, probably to avoid the horribly optimised console port of GTA IV.

And by that you mean? PC market is just as large. Release it on Steam for 35-40 usd/eur etc. It will fly in sales. No worries of physical product, logistics etc. Pure cash in. People would not even need to queue and wait for delivery. Preorder is still a thing.

Considering my friends from various communities have all traded it in I doubt its that good.

Because GTA games have a huge legacy and a huge following? That's like asking why people still care about Counter-Strike or Starcraft.

They didn't just port it, they improved it (next gen standards) which surely took 'em some time.

Imagine the butthurt PC fanboys if the game was released side by side the 360/PS3 version but hardly looked any better (foliage, water, animals and general effects density).

yep, not going to give money to a company that deliberately delays a game in order to milk the most amount of purchases from people who will buy it on all their systems

Except they don't frequently give the middle finger to one of the two if not the platform that made them.

 

Riding off a legacy and a huge following, you mean like ID did? As a starcraft fan if blizzard fuck up I let them now about it. I've guys who are giving out to valve about breaking csgo but for some reason with GTA people just bend over and ask to be second rate repeatedly.

 

Don't get me wrong if Rockstar do this right I will praise them for it but blindly supporting a company who has been recently making it a habit to shaft pc users is just idiotic.

Wow. Seriously people? You are bitching about a three month delay? For fuck's sake get over yourselves. I hate the word entitled but Christ this thread is a shining example of it. Would you rather they rush the port and make it as crap as GTAIV's PC version? The delay at least means there is a chance they're taking their time to make it not terrible. Considering how much people bitch about crappy console ports you'd think you would want companies to take their time.
