GTA V could still be coming to PC

Grand Theft Auto V, the expansive single-player, multi-character game due out next year, may find a parking spot outside its already confirmed consoles.
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are the currently known homes for the Los Santos-set gameplay, but according to a recent report, PCs and the Nintendo Wii U could see GTA V’s characters come to life too.
“Everything else is up for consideration,” said Dan Houser, vice president of creativity for Rockstar Games and the company’s head writer, in an interview with IGN, answering an inquiry as to why other consoles aren’t confirmed for the game.
While that might not seem much to go on, Houser elaborated that unlike Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft, Rockstar is a third-party publisher and is free to pick its carrying partners.
The Wii U went on sale Sunday in the U.S. and is due out in the U.K. soon.
And while it’s not launching with many of the promised services it was supposed to, including Nintendo TVii, a GTA V/Rockstar partnership could see the Wii U’s sales overcome any initial bumps in the road.
