The Xbox One console is barely a few days old, but we have some fresh GTA V news that may shock you, especially those that are patiently waiting for a Grand Theft Auto 5 update on the missing PC version of the game. GTA V for the Xbox One has already been spotted online from one retailer, suggesting that Rockstar may have plans to bring next-gen versions of the game to consumers after all.
It is almost inevitable that we will eventually see a PC version of GTA V released, but Rockstar are keeping fans sweating by remaining completely silent on when a release may take place. If history repeats itself, we could be looking at a PC release around six months after the PS3 and Xbox 360 version launches – which means we could be looking at a rough March / April PC release for GTA V.
However, does Rockstar actually have plans to release PS4 and Xbox One versions at the same time as the PC version? Considering that the PS4 and Xbox hardware have been designed to be more PC-friendly, it would appear to be a smart and logical move for Rockstar to go with this plan.
Console versions to release on September 17, next-gen and PC versions to follow in March or April next year – it sounds perfect doesn’t it? As noted by AttackoftheFanboy, a Danish retailer by the name of Coolshop has wasted no time in making public an Xbox One listing for GTA V.
The listing is still live as we speak, so have they perhaps been a little bit naughty in revealing information that Rockstar were intending to announce themselves during E3 week? Considering that many other publishers are bringing out current gen and next-gen versions of their latest games (Battlefield 4, Watch Dogs), we wouldn’t be surprised if Rockstar have secretly been working on PC, Xbox One and PS4 versions behind the scenes.
Could it also have been part of the reason why the game was delayed until September from a Spring 2013 release? It will be interesting to see how long this listing stays live. Give us your thoughts on an Xbox One listing for GTA V appearing and potentially – releasing before a PC version.
