Original aritcle: “GTA 5” on PC may be coming out later than the PS4 and Xbox One versions. According to a report from Segment Next on April 18, Altex has listed the fifth numbered installment of the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise for the computer platform as well as the two next-generation systems. However, the Romanian retailer has slightly different release dates posted when compared to other shopping websites for the software product.
Altex is expecting “GTA 5” to come out for the PC on March 15 as well as the PS4 and Xbox One on June 15 of next year. As a result, computer players may have to end up waiting at least 18 months after the original releases of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions in order to get their hands on the popular video game. In comparison, “GTA 4” came out for the PC seven months after being released on the current-generation consoles.
The Altex listings somewhat contradict what other retailers are saying in regards to the rumored release dates for “GTA 5” on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A retail manager at Saturn stated that he heard that the video game would be arriving for all three platforms sometime later this summer. Even with all of the potential leaks of the ports, the publisher has not provided any indications regarding the developments of the new versions. A potential announcement could be made in the near future, perhaps at the E3 2014 event in June.
The studio at Rockstar North is still focusing on providing post-launch support for “GTA 5” on the PS3 and Xbox 360. The development team is planning several big DLC releases for this spring with the “High Life Update” as well as multiplayer heists. Several new story-based expansion packs are also expected to come out later this year.

“GTA 5” on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One should look better than the current-generation console versions due to the more powerful hardware setups. Among the visual improvements that could be made is a higher native resolution support along with a faster frame rate clip. The potential PC, PS4 and Xbox One releases should also help boost the sales of “GTA 5,” which has already sold more than 32.5 million copies on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
