GTA 5 PC petition surpasses 400,000 signatures
The petition to bring Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto 5 to PC now has over 400,000 signatures, thanks largely to the game's release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. 24 hours after GTA 5's release yesterday, the highly anticipated game sits at a 98 and 97 Metacritic score for Xbox 360 and PS3, respectively. It's on track to challenge its predecessor Grand Theft Auto 4 as the highest rated game of all time. So it's understandable why gamers are so adamant on bringing it to PC.
The actual petition reads:
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!
At the time of this writing, the petition currently sits at 435,503 signatures. Whether or not that's enough to convince Rockstar remains to be seen, but it's worth noting that leaked copies of the game prior to its release revealed source files pointing to potential PC and PlayStation 4 versions of Grand Theft Auto 5. Rockstar has yet to comment on such rumors, but we have reached out to them for clarification.
