| GTA5 will come for PC, but it won't come anytime soon. I don't know why so many keep doubting a PC Version.... |
cause it actually wouldnt make sense if ou think in buisness.
the illegal downloads of GTA on PC is gigantic and the gain of a port wouldnt really have a point. thats even what Dan Houser said in an interview. They are developing on plattforms which they gain profit.
YOu just have to watch the PC Port of GTA4. there wasnt really much effort in it.
Now the scale of GTA5 is huge, much bigger than GTA4. The Port costs would increase too and if they want to make a good port like MP3 (i guess it was a port from what Ive red) it would cost even more and would take much longer than the GTA4 port. So half year after console release doesnt sound legit to me
( the costs of the game alone are 140.000.000$ compared to GTA4 with 100.000.000
There's an Xbox Version of it. The port from Xbox to PC isn't really that much trouble, if this was a PS3 exclusive then yeah I'd also say there will never be a PC Version.
If you consider all the illegal Xbox 360 downloads then it wouldn't make any sense to bring out the game for that console as well, yet they do, because there's still enough people that buy the game, same goes for PC.
I don't see how the size of the game makes a difference, doesn't matter if the map is small or big, the game doesn't need to be rebuilt, it will only need a tweaked engine that runs on PC, and like I said, not a big deal due to the Xbox Version, and since it's just an advanced engine of GTA4 they surely know how to port it rather quickly to PC.
It's not something they would work full time on anyways, so the costs shouldn't be high. It'll be a bunch of people only while the main team works on new games.
Personally it doesn't matter to me anyways if it comes to PC, but I'm still sure that it will come.
