The long awaited PC release for Grand Theft Auto V is almost here, coming over a year and a half after the initial release and half a year after the current-gen version. With the release coming next Tuesday, April 14, lots of news is beginning to circulate about the PC release, including information on how Rockstar will be aiming to juggle future updates between the console and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V.
Through an interview with GameSpot, Rockstar’s lead gameplay designer John Macpherson spoke about the upcoming PC release for Grand Theft Auto V, including details on their future update plans.
“We plan to deliver updates to PC and consoles simultaneously. There can be occasional variations in timing based on specifics from one console to another but PC will not be on a separate timetable to other platforms.”
This is fantastic news for those who were worried that the Grand Theft Auto V PC version would lag behind its console counterparts due to the much later release, but Macpherson discusses how the similar infrastructure between the two versions allows them to work on them together.
There was no information on what specific updates they have in the works, but Rockstar is likely already thinking 10 steps ahead if the past is any indication. Hopefully these plans do pan out for Grand Theft Auto V on PC, as it would be great to allow all owners of the game to experience the most up to date version at all times.
