Chris R. Silva recently disclosed that he does not see the recently-released Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 video game, “GTA 5,” staying exclusive on consoles. During an interview with PC Gamer on Oct. 8, the director of marketing behind Premium Notebook brands from Intel believed that Rockstar Games can’t ignored the growing market for PC gaming.
Although Chris R. Silva thought that someone paid the publisher to keep “GTA 5” on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, he also stated that Rockstar Games would be crazy not to take advantage of the “tens of billions of dollars” of revenue generated every year on the PC platform. You can check out some screenshots of the open-world action-adventure video game running on the current-generation consoles in the slideshow near the top of this article and the explanation from Chris R. Silva below (courtesy of PC Gamer):
The PC gaming ecosystem just continues to grow. If you look at the amount of revenue that is generated by PC gaming it’s in the tens of billions of dollars each year. It’s incredibly diverse and rich and that’s it’s greatest strength.
Rockstar Games launched “GTA 5,” which was mainly developed by the Rockstar North studio, for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 last month on Sept. 17. “Grand Theft Auto Online,” the multiplayer mode, was activated on Oct. 1.
Despite the fact that the company has a history of porting “Grand Theft Auto” titles to the PC platform following the console releases, the publisher has not yet confirmed or denied to possibility of a port of the open-world action-adventure video game.
