During Nvidia's earnings call last week, the company mentioned Grand Theft Auto V as part of a list of anticipated games. The wording and context of Nvidia's statement suggested that a PC version of GTA V would be out this fall—perhaps not long after the September 17 console release. Forbes and a number of other sites (including TR) jumped on the story.
Well, Nvidia has since released a new statement that says, in so many words: nothing to see here.
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.
Nvidia's clarification doesn't explain why the company mentioned a console game in a set of prepared remarks about PC gaming. It's possible that a PC version of GTA V is, in fact, coming this fall, and that Nvidia let the cat out of the bag inadvertently. However, the words "NVIDIA does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto" aren't exactly open for interpretation. I suppose we'll have to wait for Rockstar or Take-Two to chime in on this one.
