GTA V is the title that’s currently got the gaming world in a tizz. There are still many, many unanswered questions, such as whether or not the game will arrive on any other platforms beside the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
IGN recently wrangled Rockstar VP of creativity Dan Houser, and got him to answer some of the more pressing questions. When asked why the game was only confirmed for PS3 and Xbox 360, and why not PC or Wii U, Houser’s response can be seen as a little disconcerting for the PC crowd: “Everything else is up for consideration. That’s all I can give you.”
The previous entry in the series, GTA IV, arrived on PC after more than a seven month delay and considerable porting issues. After that, Rockstar’s other big title, Red Dead Redemption, skipped the PC altogether.
“The main thing is we are not… we are a third-party publisher,” Houser continued, “We’re not Nintendo, we’re not Sony, we’re not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there’s the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market. If that’s on Apple we put something on Apple. Wherever it might be. I think that’s the fun in what we do. We see ourselves as a content company that uses technology. We don’t make it; we use it to make the most fun stuff.”
From the sounds of things, it doesn’t seem as if Rockstar has thought beyond console versions for GTA V. Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime has expressed interest in welcoming GTA to their new toy (the Wii U).
