Grand Theft Auto 5 release date with Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) and Xbox 360 coming September 17


An NVIDIA spokesperson has offered the official response that GTA V will be launched this fall.

First the company made sure the existence of a Microsoft MSFT -1.23% Surface RT follow up, for which they’re managing processing duties (presumably a Tegra 4).

Now, the company officials have given GTA fans a hope by flat-out stating that Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V will release for PC this fall.

The official date was revealed during an earnings call hosted by Chris Evenden, NVIDIA’s Senior Director of Investor Relations.

Evenden was delineating the changes in the PC market, the changes by which PC gamers are getting affected. He then explained that the demographic is “preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin’s Creed IV.”

For enhancing Assassin’s Creed IV, NVIDIA is working directly with Ubisoft developers. Perhaps NVIDIA even has a hard release date for GTA V as a plan, but the “fall” window is still reassuring.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions land on September 17, meaning PC users may not have to wait long for what they know will be the advanced version of the game.

Grand Theft Auto fans took to recently to petition Rockstar to release a PC version of GTA V. The petition currently has 314,000 signatures.

If NVIDIA’s words ring true, that petition won’t be necessary. This information comes just days before Rockstar was ready to unveil the details of GTA V’s multiplayer component.
