If you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto V (OK, stupid question…) then the general “GTA V buzz” at Gamescom this year would not have been to your liking.
Although GTA BOOM couldn’t attend in person, we’ve heard from several sources that there was plenty of gossip at this year’s famous German game fair that GTA V for PC would not be released until the first half of 2015… at the earliest!
This would be a pretty major delay and change from the only official announcements from Rockstar Games on the matter – until now they’ve only commented via the original announcement that a PC version was coming, along side versions for the Xbox One and Playstation 4, in Autumn this year.
In what could be interpreted as another bad sign, there was also no mention of the next-gen versions of the game at the show, which is somewhat ominous if it is indeed going to be launched within the new few months!
One issue which GTA BOOM recently highlighted is that the nailing down the online portion of the game, GTA Online, might be particularly hard for the PC version. Rockstar has struggled to contain all the glitching in GTA Online for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3… and one can easily imagine glitching on a PC version of the game being taken to a whole new level.
We’ll update you as soon as we hear more… but just remember, at least at the moment, that Autumn is still very much the goal – we can’t wait to play GTA V on other systems either!
