The signatures calling for the release of “GTA 5” on PC has surpassed a new milestone. According to a report from Breathe Cast on April 24, the much publicized petition asking Rockstar Games to port the fifth numbered entry from the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise to computers have now accumulated more than 700,000 members. The same online form had 650,000 signatures earlier this year, suggesting that more and more fans are still waiting for the PC version.
Rockstar Games appear to be comfortable with letting the demand build up. Dan Houser, the co-founder of the company, did state in late 2012 that the publisher is considering porting “GTA 5” to the PC as well as other consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One. However, he has remained silent on the subject since making his initial comments on the situation.
Fortunately, several retailers are giving fans some hope regarding “GTA 5” possibly being released on the PC. More than a few online shopping website are now taking pre-orders for the computer port, as well as the PS4 and Xbox One versions, of the open-world action role-playing game. The release dates for the software products could arrive as early as June of this year.
“GTA 5” has already been a massive financial success for Rockstar Games. The video game shattered sales records when it came out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 console on Sept. 17, 2013. The company is also making a lot of money off of the micro-transaction DLC cash cards from the “GTA Online” mode. More than 70 percent of “GTA 5” players have tried the multiplayer portion at least once.
