As badly as we all want Rockstar Games to throw us PC gamers a bone and at least confirm that Grand Theft Auto V is being ported over to our platform of choice, there's just no substitute for patience. Unfortunately, impatience can lead to bad decisions, like trying to illegally download a version of a game that doesn't yet exist in hopes that it turns out to be real, only to find out you have a real mess on your hands.
Knowing that PC gamers are eagerly anticipating their turn to play GTA V with a keyboard and mouse, malware writers went and crafted a legitimate looking "leak" of the PC port and tossed the torrent online. According to WCCFTECH, which took a look at the torrent, the setup file is a realistic 18GB.
Of course, the file isn't legit, though if you tried installing it and held out hope it was real, you wouldn't find out that you'd been duped until you got to the registration window. It's at that point users are sent on a wild goose chase, with a .txt file indicating that a serial is available on a page where the user must complete a series of surveys.
Thousands have downloaded the infected torrent file, and maybe thousands more will continue to do so. Either way, GTA V doesn't yet exist for PC, legally or illegally.
