Jealous of all your console-using friends who've been enjoying Grand Theft Auto V since September 17? Well, you may not have to wait much longer—or at least, not that much longer.
Citing "multiple industry sources," Eurogamer reports that a PC version of GTA V is on schedule for the first quarter of next year. The site doesn't say much else, except that, officially, Rockstar Games has yet to announce anything.
Nvidia hinted at a fall release for GTA V PC in its latest quarterly earnings call. However, the company later retracted its statement, saying it misspoke and that it " does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability."
If the Eurogamer story is correct, GTA V could hit the PC slightly sooner after its console release than the previous title in the series. GTA IV came out for Windows in early December 2008, seven months after its debut on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. (Thanks to Ars Technica for the link.)
