PC Gamer petition for GTA V reaches 100,000 signatures

Rockstar Games has yet confirm any platforms for their next Grand Theft Auto title besides the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which they began taking pre-orders for earlier this month. With the franchise having such a large following on the PC, this segment of GTA fans are left wondering if they’ll get a crack at this next open-world title.

A petition which was formed last week is continuing to pick up steam, and has recently surpassed 100,000 signatures from players pleading with the developer to bring GTA V to PC. Whether or not this will have any impact on Rockstar’s decision to bring the title to the platform is anyone’s guess, but Rockstar is still “considering it”.

In a recent interview, Dan Houser of Rockstar Games said there are still other options on the table, and that the developer was looking at both the Wii U and PC as possible platforms that GTA V could arrive on. If GTA V arrived on the PC at a later date, it wouldn’t be a first for the franchise. Grand Theft Auto IV didn’t make it to the PC until over six months after its debut on consoles, but continues to have a large following on the platform, due to community made content from the modding community.

GTA V is scheduled for a spring 2013 release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
