When asked for an update on where things were in regards to the PC version, the GTA developer responded by saying: “we’re presently in the final stages of development on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V and hope to have confirmed official system requirements to share soon here at the Newswire, please stay tuned for that to be announced in the coming week. Thank you and we’re very excited to bring GTAV to the PC gaming community!”
The developer went on to clarify the whole character transfer debacle, where players thought you could only transfer your character once (eg. PS3 to PS4) and not multiple times because of some false information on the Rockstar support website. It turns out, thankfully, that players can transfer their characters multiple times between PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
“Not to worry, you will be able to transfer your Online characters and progress from any of the four consoles (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox One) to the PC platform. To be clear: if you transfer or have already transferred your progress from PS3 or Xbox 360 to either PS4 or Xbox One, you will still be able to do another transfer again from PS4 or Xbox One to PC.”
Other information revealed in the Newswire included the fact that “a few seasonal treats are in the works for players on all four systems to enjoy this coming holiday season in GTA Online” and the fact that Heists don’t have an official release date at the moment besides a vague early 2015.
Dale reviewed Grand Theft Auto 5 upon its release on last-gen consoles in September 2013. He was rather taken with it. “Grand Theft Auto 5 is a triumph,” he wrote in his Grand Theft Auto 5 review. “Testing current-generation console hardware to its absolute limits, amazing with just how much scope and detail Rockstar North has crammed into it and acting as much a celebration of the past as a glimpse forward into the future of both the series and the genre.”
