Rockstar Jobs Page Hints at Grand Theft Auto V PC Port


Coming at the tail-end of the current generation, Grand Theft Auto V's omission of a PC version at launch has been largely controversial. The game is limited by the same hardware that Grand Theft Auto IV ran on in 2008, and within months of release its graphics will be overshadowed by next-gen games. Thankfully, a PC version isn't out of the question, and new evidence makes it appear closer to reality than once thought.

Rockstar Games is currently hiring a graphics programmer specifically to work on PC ports. The job description on Rockstar's jobs portal says the following:

Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform.  Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible.

A PC version has been suspect for a while now, but never confirmed. PC gamers have never given up hope as they've held onto the fact that every Grand Theft Auto game including the original has come to Windows.

It appears likely that it will follow in the footsteps of GTAIV with a port 6-12 months down the road. It's a long wait to endure, but this is GTA we're talking about. Playing it with hyper-realistic graphics is well worth the wait. Let's just hope it's optimized unlike GTAIV's PC version.
