Grand Theft Auto V broke every major sales record in the industry, and was universally hailed as a phenomenal game-play experience. The critical and audience reception was universally positive and it broke new ground in technical and narrative avenues alike. Even to audiences disinclined to interest, Grand Theft Auto V was an in impressive and compelling title. A single question surrounded the release of the latest outing in Rockstar’s flagship franchise, and that was: “Last gen only? Really? Are you sure?” and that usually uttered in tones as hopeful as they were concerned.
The reasons were unquestionably financial. Within six weeks of release, Grand Theft Auto V had sold 29 million copies. Next-gen console sales, given very positive sales forecasts, won’t hit that number until March of 2015. Rockstar undoubtedly wished to spend their polish-time for the current generation, and consider next-generation and PC development at a later date.
That later date has come. During last night’s Sony Press Conference, a Fall release for Grand Theft Auto V was announced for PC, PlayStation 4 and XBONE.
