Rockstar considering GTA V for PC and Wii U

by | @AttackFanboy | on November 19, 2012

This spring Rockstar will release Grand Theft Auto V on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  Rockstar has yet to reveal any GTA V plans for other platforms, saying that all efforts were focused on these two.  As expected, the company is also looking at the PC and Wii U for a possible release.

Dan Houser recently told IGN that “Everything else is up for consideration,” when asked about the potential for other platforms.  Houser attributes the announcement for only the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a “business opportunity”.

“We are not a third-party publisher,” said Houser.  “We’re not Nintendo, we’re not Sony, we’re not Microsoft.  We love all of them in different ways.  But we can do what we want wherever there’s the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market.”

If GTA V didn’t land on the Wii U it wouldn’t be surprising, but the PC is a different animal.  Grand Theft Auto IV was, and is wildly popular on the platform, given its huge modding potential. Comparable to a game like Skyrim, GTA V on PC could benefit from a partnership with Valve in bringing official tools to Steam users with the new workshop functionality.
