Since the announcement of “Grand Theft Auto V” fans of the franchise have been wondering when Rockstar would announce a version for PC. We are just shy of six months since the game has been released and still no sign of a PC version. Not counting the many rumors and supposed leaked data of a PC version for “GTA V,” although some of the leaks have been pretty convincing. I mean Rockstar has remained silent on the matter of a PC version since the games initial release.

Many report that the developers are taking a little more time with the PC version to perfect the “GTA Online” aspect. While others say they are working on the graphics for the PC, which are said to be greater than the PS3 and Xbox 360. Rockstar will eventually announce the game to the public, I mean it took the developer over eight months to release the PC version of “GTA IV” so we should see something soon. Perhaps sooner than you think, it’s being reported that preorders for “Grand Theft Auto V” PC will start Friday, Jan. 31.

The word is Dixons Retail group of companies, Elgiganten, out of Sweden is set to launch preorders at the end of this week. This isn’t the first time the game has gone up for sale and each time it has been due to an error and the posting is gone by the end of day. This case is a little different where it looks like “GTA V” PC is planned and has been confirmed to be put up for preorder by management at Elgiganten stores.

There are a couple of pros and cons if this in fact is real. A pro is that we will finally have a release date for the highly-anticipated PC iteration of “GTA V.” Another pro is we would hopefully get some news on next-gen console versions as well. Some cons, well one, is that “GTA V” PC is going on preorder in Sweden which means other European territories will see the game as well and also means the U.S. will have to wait a little while longer. As of now this news has not been confirmed by Rockstar so it is still probable this is all just a mistake, but we will keep an eye out for any new details that may confirm this to be true.
