Probably an oversight. The PC version will come though.

Probably just listed so they can get pre-orders for it.

If it's just a placeholder why did they change it from TBA to 17 Sept as OP pointed out? Either a mistake or.. yeah, a mistake.

... Or is it... smile.gif Won't that be the biggest surprise ever if the pc version is released on 17 Sep? That. Would. Be. Freakin. Awesum!!! Or maybe they meant 17 September 2014... sad.gif

Just a place holder, but I do think there is a possibility of them announcing the PC version on 17 Sep. If not, then the traditional way.

Announcing the PC version on the same day the console versions are getting released? That seems like an absolute no-go in marketing bussiness.

They will do that a few months later like in November, December. And set the release for early next year. Or even in the same year.. late December.

This again? NO.

It's just a place holder because they assume it will be out for PC.

It is a lie. They probably wont even release it on PC since only about 1% of people play Gta on PC.

So you mean like it was an absolute no-go that Take-Two announced the PC version of GTA San Andreas in early September 2004, which was only a month before the initial release of the game?

Really though, it's unlikely that they will announce GTAV for PC in September, but it will be certainly interesting to see how long we will have to wait for the announcement of it and what's more important: how long we will have to wait for the actual release.

Cool story.. Wheres your source for 1% besides pulling it out of your ass..

I will be getting it on PS3 but no doubt it will release on PC and Rockstar will make Millions and Millions in profit from the PC release.. Not something a smart business ignores.

IGN review games, they don't sell them.

Like others have stated it's just a place holder, it's been like that since around last November or so and it's still not confirmed.

Wait this is new.

IGN had TBA2013 even when the release was Spring 2013, so why the hell they changed it to September now?

Honestly I doubt that happens, unless R* is changing their strategy because of Next Gen consoles, but it's weird this change out of the blue.

Wondering if Rockstar isn't expecting all the pre-orders they can and when their aim is achieved if they'll make the announcement. I mean looks like that the expensive versions announced yesterday are almost all gone from everywhere, which shows the fever for GTAV, although strategically wise and being a PC player only, I think a release in the same day could make them lose a few sales, give it 2 weeks or a month.

They used to through their affiliate partnership with GameStop. And they used to have a digital distribution channel, but like every other division at IGN, it was canned or sold off.

They also said Tommy and CJ are the main characters. And that Trevor lives in the "projects".

Point being, they have a history of making things up.

IGN also has articles on their website asking about a PC version, and Rockstar didn't give them an answer to indicate it's out September 17th.

Having worked at IGN, it was most likely just one of the guys that slotted it across the board in the game object database.
