GTA V For PC / PS4 Gets Heavily Rumored Release Date

GTA V PS4 Release Date

The time is approaching when we will finally see whether or not all previous GTA V PC / PS4 rumor are leading up to the real thing. Several retailers have posted listings for the game on Windows PC or PlayStation 4 and citing September 2014 as a potential release window for when the game will release on these platforms. This isn’t the first time such listings have popped up, and it probably won’t be the last.

At this time Rockstar Games has not announced and has not confirmed any information about the existence of a PC or PlayStation 4 version of the game for release on retail markets. It is, however, considered an inevitability by most investors.

#GTAV PS4 / PC Versions: Will They Arrive? If So, When? [Latest Info Here]

Grand Theft Auto 5 PS4 Release Date

Recently the rumor has been re-kindled that PlayStation 4 and Windows PC will see their own versions of Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive’s Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) (our review here) (gameplay videos | info here)

What evidence Exists to support this claim? So far the response from this has been firm from PC gamers participating in a petition to Rockstar Games to make this happen, which gave birth to a counter-petition and then eventually led to the arrival of a malicious-code-containing Fake GTA V PC Virus file.

A PC version of Grand Theft Auto V has appeared on Germany’s Amazon (Amazon.de). Could this just be Amazon being hopeful or is there something we do not know about yet? Amazon.de listed a Windows PC copy for Grand Theft Auto V at 59,99 EUR but does that mean it actually exists? Looking at the video games’ and retailers’ close history together, it probably does, but this is far from confirmation.

We reported not that long ago that E3 2013 saw the release of a particular announcement many were quick to glance over. At the annual worldwide-attended video games industry trade event it was announced that a Grand Theft Auto V Exclusive Sony Deal [was] Signed, First Step is GTA V PS3 Bundle. What was meant by this is that there exists reason to believe that the strengthening of the relationship between Rockstar Games, Take-Two Interactive, and Sony would extend beyond this announcement itself but also be indicative of possible future strategies.

Many players heard how the GTA V game was advertised almost as if it was a PlayStation 3 exclusive in many countries, perhaps that was a result of an increased promotional campaign between Sony and Rockstar / Take-Two. If so, this can be seen as a reason to believe later reports that are surfacing about a next-generation console iteration of GTA V.

A hacker who obtained a digital copy of the PlayStation 3 title through a glitch found in the pre-loading / digital day one system on PlayStation Network (causing Sony and Rockstar to temporarily take it down), recently revealed to the world that code was found in Grand Theft Auto V which could be evidence that the title will receive a Windows PC and PlayStation 4 release at some future time. This evidence is understood by gamers to be relevant to this sort of porting. It shows at least, that Rockstar / Take-Two have intent to consider these versions even if they don’t end up producing them.

GTA V Los Santos PS4 PC Release Date

Rockstar Games has before noted publicly that “if a market exists for it” they’d consider porting the game for the PC. Clearly the goings-on in the industry have shown that there is a market for it, but they may not all be willing to buy immediately. It might take a battle against piracy on the computer platform.

On the other hand, the massive success of Steam does provide a good amount of buyers. GTA has previously been published under Games for Windows Live, maybe this time we will finally see it become a Steam Exclusive. And maybe, just maybe, the reason PC gamers have to wait so long is because although there is piracy on consoles the piracy on Windows PC can sometimes be beyond tolerable.

For example, Gears of War was pirated a 55:1 ratio when compared to purchases according to Cliffy B and Epic Games. This was a huge part of the reasoning behind the decision to go completely Xbox 360 exclusive. Sure, Xbox 360 games show up on pirate boards. But these situations are easier to deal with and combat since players sign online to Xbox Live Gold very often and have less control over the programs running on their machines. Not to mention, the amount of pirates on the console is just a lot less.

GTA V Pirated - A Fan Art

Another interesting thing that happened, in regards to the Sony / Rockstar relationship strengthening was the way they began to word press releases regarding the PlayStation 3 versus the Xbox 360 in terms of patches coming in for Grand Theft Auto Online as well as the glitches being experienced by gamers worldwide. When they stated in the body of a press release that Sony’s PSN server system was responsible for some players not being able to log in, yet named the press release ‘PS3 Version of GTA Online Patched, Xbox 360 Owners Still Waiting’.

Seeing all of this take place, one can’t help but figure that this is to soften the blow of the news that Rockstar effectively debugged PSN for free in order to troubleshoot the problems PlayStation 3 gamers were having trying to get logged on. At least they still disclosed the information about the PSN bug which was found within their press release rather than hiding it completely though.

Of course, we’d be ignoring the obvious if we didn’t acknowledge the fact that Take-Two Interactive did say they had an “extraordinary pipeline of titles” currently in development when asked about the PlayStation 4 (and then known-as Xbox 720) next-generation consoles.

GTA V Meme

In terms of conclusive expectations, everything is still up in the air until official confirmation comes down from Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games themselves. This is the underground scene, the context with which the gaming press and public are being presented, and the pretext of factual evidence that exists before us in terms of what to expect going forward. It’s likely that a release date for Grand Theft Auto V (if one ever comes to exist at all) for Sony PlayStation 4 and Windows PC will be a ways out to make run for holiday spending on the existing install base of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

It seems reasonable to expect that if the game would release anytime in 2013 for PS4 or PC we would have seen marketing and advertising for it already. This could be a game we see some time between February – March of 2014, but likely no sooner than that and possibly later. Expecting a fully remade graphic set for the game and new features may be a fools’ errand however. Rockstar Games has already stated that they are working on the next edition of a highly known video game intellectual property (franchise), so it’s likely that the Windows PC and PlayStation 4 may see some kind of port instead of a full remake / remaster treatment of GTA V.

This seems to be another notion that we shouldn’t expect the release anytime soon, as to prevent saturation of the product’s availability thereby decreasing its value. GTA V has made itself over $800 Million in the first day alone, going on to become the fastest-selling video game of all time while racking up 7 World Records, and was even chosen to be a major piece of the 2013 New York Film Festival. Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive have likely printed a massive amount of Blu-Ray and DVD discs for the PS3 and 360 versions meaning there’s really no rush on their end and have all the time in the world to present re-prints / ports exactly the way that they want to.

GTA V Made $800 Million Within One Day

GTAV4

Take-Two has revealed today that Grand Theft Auto V has made approximately $800 million in total sales during the 24 hours of its release. It marks “the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the Grand Theft Auto series”.

“All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V,” Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick stated. “Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry’s new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence. Beginning at midnight on Monday, consumers around the world gathered in anticipation to be among the first to experience the evolution of this remarkable series. In North America alone, more than 8,300 stores opened their doors at midnight to welcome fans whose loyalty and enthusiasm were rewarded with what The New York Times called ‘the most immersive spectacle in interactive entertainment’. We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games’ creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch.”

Take note that the figures includes sales across both platforms and all territories except Brazil and Japan; which will see the game’s release later on. GTA V was in development for 5 years and had a budget of $260 million. It’s safe to say that Take-Two has more than enough to cover those expenses.

Grand Theft Auto V is out now on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Its multiplayer component Grand Theft Auto Online will be released on October 1st.

Some Amazon Customers Received #GTAV Early; Rockstar Investigating

GTA V Street Date

It appears there may have been a mistake with Amazon’s mailing as some customers have reported receiving their games up to 4 days early in regard to the Grand Theft Auto V release. This may be an innocent error caused by unpredictable shipping carriers bringing the game ahead of time. Think about this, if Amazon gave you a release date shipping guarantee and their carrier for ‘Region A’ estimated that the delivery would take X days so Amazon sent it, the carrier may have ended up accomplishing that before the weekend broke therefore causing the large discrepancy.

Due to the game getting pirated on x360 via Torrent downloaders, people who received the game early should definitely not play it while signed in online, just in case their account and home IP address gets banned. It’s likely that we won’t hear about this again and gamers will never know exactly what went wrong in the shipping of GTA V to a small number of customers since Rockstar Games and Amazon are massive businesses with an amicable partnership, this will likely be settled in private whether or not it includes the fines sometimes placed on retailers by publishers for breaking ‘Street Dates’. Check out our extensive GTA V Section for more info about the game releasing tomorrow!

Saints Row IV Remains #1 On UK Sales Chart; 2 New DLCs Coming This Week

RGN Saints Row IV Review RealGamerNewz

Volition and Deep Silver will be releasing two new DLCs for Saints Row IV (our review here) this week. The game is the second-highest selling title of August 2013 in North America (second only to Madden NFL 25 by EA Sports) and has been dominating the UK Sales charts as well. Those UK Sales have been updated this morning and SRIV remains in the #1 slot beating out notable releases such as Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX from Square Enix.

  • The GATV DLC pack will include new weapons, character customization options, and a ‘knife-gun’ and is said to contain parody references to open-world competitor Grand Theft Auto.
  • The Wild West DLC pack is expected to be formally revealed by Deep Silver and Volition soon and RealGamerNewz will bring you the official details to the game as soon as they become available from our contacts.

Find even more DLC information, trailers, and gameplay videos of SRIV at our dedicated SRIV Section.
