Why is Rockstar Games being so coy about a version of Grand Theft Auto V for PCs?
Oh Rockstar Games, why must you be so secretive? Rockstar Games has yet to announce or confirm that the next installment of its popular Grand Theft Auto franchise -- Grand Theft Auto V -- will ship to PC, even though every previous title in the series has. Don't worry yourself silly over it, not only does history provide a strong case for GTA V shipping to PC, but pre-order pages on several Amazon portals in Europe may have let the cat out of the bag.
Rockstar has only announced GTA V for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, stating that "every thing else is up for consideration," including ports for the PC and Wii U. However, the PC version is already up for pre-order on Amazon in France and Germany, and there's a notification page listed on Amazon's U.K. portal.
What's also interesting about the timing is that it suggests the PC release could come out the same time as the console versions, which are slated for Spring 2013. That's not usually the case. GTA IV, for example, came out on April 29, 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and didn't ship to PC until December 3, 2008.
