As “Grand Theft Auto V” finally goes on sale today, the petition to bring Rockstar Games’ eagerly awaited open-world crime game to PC has reached a little over 400,000 signatures, while the petition to bring it to Wii U has dried out.
Despite facing opposition from jaded gamers wishing to keep “Grant Theft Auto V” a console exclusive, the PC petition by Mike Julliard is close to obtaining its goal of 500,000 signatures. Here’s what Julliard wrote in his petition to Rockstar.
Please release GTA V on PC. GTA games have been a large part of so many people's lives and it's a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform. Things like modifications have always been a HUGE part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have.
I hope you consider the release of GTA V on PC as it'll make many people very happy!
Regarding a possible PC release of “Grand Theft Auto V”, Rockstar said they’re only focusing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version at launch. However, there has been evidence to suggest a PC version of the game is secretly in the works, along with a PlayStation 4 version.
PC gamers aren't the only ones missing out on “Grand Theft Auto V,” as Wii U owners are once again denied a highly anticipated third-party game. A petition to show interest in a Wii U version of “Grand Theft Auto V” was started in 2012, but has only earned 4,313 signatures since its creation.
“Grand Theft Auto V” is available now for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s expected to generate $1 billion in sales for its first month of release.
