Grand Theft Auto V Petitions

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 07:10 PM MDT | By Ash_735
Petitions are funny things, sometimes they work, a lot of times they don't, recently two petitions have caught my attention, both relating to Grand Theft Auto V.

The first petition, which is quite a popular subject, is about releasing a PC Version of Grand Theft Auto V, which at the time of writing this currently has over 17,100 signatures but is still quite far off it's 100,000 goal. Now, normally Rockstar do not announce a PC version right away, if we look at past Grand Theft Auto games, all promo and advertisements cover the console versions of the game up to the release date. A few weeks to months later Rockstar usually then come forward and announce the PC version to be released in a few months time. Now we get a lot of messages from people about this, a lot of complaints and arguments where for some reason people think Rockstar have abandoned the PC platform and that they won't release Grand Theft Auto V on it just because they're not talking about it right now? So far we have no reason to believe why any of that would be true, Rockstar Games have constantly updated the Social Club platform on the PC version to the point where it's now an independent client running in the background of the game where it sorts out things like Multiplayer, Stats Tracking, Crew Details and Achievements, etc, and then we have all this used and demonstrated within the PC version of Max Payne 3, which itself wasn't just a rush port but actually had a load of extra graphical features and optimizations done on the PC version. There was even some GTA V folders that appeared early in the Social Club install directory a few updates back, so if anything, we have MORE evidence supporting a PC release than against at this point in time.

The Second Petition is for people who speak Portuguese, the aim of this petition is that these people want Portuguese Subtitles to be included in the game along with the other Language Translations the game will get, which is a fair ask, it currently needs just over 1,000 signatures to reach its goal of 7,500.

I'm always for more translations, so if I were to sign one, it would be that. PC can just get over it. They already said they're considering it. Be patient and stop embarrassing yourself.

I'm getting pretty tired of this whole "blah blah blah no PC" debate EVERY GTA realease. It will be coming to PC without a doubt. No point debating it as someone will ALWAYS argue it with "but what about Red Dead Redemption?". Well, They're 2 different games so really, just be quiet. Please?

Considering it is enough for me, Rockstar knows that thier reputation will be hurt if they don't release it on PC, PC version always has such a massive modding community so it always has been the ideal platform for the GTA games.
