According to graphics card manufacturer Nvidia, Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PC in the next few months.

Crave Online reports that the game was described as such by Nvidia senior investor relations director Chris Evenden during the company’s recent earnings conference call.

“Many consumers look for PC as a general purpose device they can use for browsing, email, social media, video,” said Evenden.

“But much of this can be better served by a tablet. In contrast, gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V, and Assassin's Creed IV.”

Rockstar traditionally releases PC ports of its Grand Theft Auto games long after they are available on console.

In related news, Rockstar has posted an interactive guide to Los Santos on the game's official site.

Grand Theft Auto V is due out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17.


Update:

Nvidia has told Maximum PC that it has no specific knowledge regarding the existence or release of a PC port of Grand Theft Auto V, but rather, that the game was mentioned as an example.

The company's full statement:

“Please note, during our Thursday’s earnings call, our investor relations team provided a list of important games that gamers are looking forward to on PC this fall, and included Grand Theft Auto V on that list.

"This statement was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general, and was not intended to represent specific knowledge possessed by Nvidia. Nvidia does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability.

"We deeply regret the error.”
