It is beginning to seem like the real question surrounding a PC release of Grand Theft Auto V isn’t so much if it will happen. Instead, the question is starting to feel like when. Rockstar Games have not yet announced official plans to bring GTA V to PC, but new evidence has surfaced on Oct. 18 which suggests a release is incredibly likely, according to a report by Dsogaming.com.
A member of Guru3D by the name of kn00tcn has discovered a game profile for Grand Theft Auto V in the latest BETA drivers from AMD. This would indicate that AMD added the GTA V game profile to the driver database, thus indicating a PC release is inevitable. It is worth noting that the Grand Theft Auto V profile was not present in earlier drivers. However, this is the same user that discovered a Halo 3 profile in AMD’s drivers, and Microsoft has not released Halo 3 for PC.
Well I never looked very closely at the CAP file for 13.10 beta 2, but I just noticed some interesting things.

Want to prove it yourself? You don’t even need to convert the .blb to .xml, just hex edit the blb and go to 0×19130 and 0x19b88 locations.
Every mainline entry of the Grand Theft Auto series has been released on PC, though usually several months after the home console release. As such, there is no reason to believe GTA V will not eventually find its way to PC during the early portion of 2014.
