GTA 5 reportedly coming to PC this fall, says Nvidia (update)

Grand Theft Auto 5 will reportedly release to Windows PC this fall, Nvidia senior director of Investor Relations Chris Evenden stated in an earnings call transcribed by Seeking Alpha.

Evenden outlined the affect of the changing PC market on gamers, stating the demographic is "preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghost, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Assassin's Creed 4."

Nvidia has previously worked in partnership with Activision throughout the Call of Duty series, while the company is currently working alongside Ubisoft to optimize Assassin's Creed 4. Nvidia has yet to announce a direct partnership with GTA 5 developer Rockstar, however.

Rockstar has previously been slow to bring popular releases to Windows PC, with titles like Red Dead Redemption never even receiving a release off of consoles. GTA 5 is slated to arrive Sept. 17 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Update: Nvidia released a statement this morning, clarifying that the statement on its investor call was made in error.

"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," it reads. "Nvidia does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability. We deeply regret the error."
