Rockstar: GTA 5 for PC "Up for Consideration"

An interview on IGN answers some "burning questions" about Grand Theft Auto V, the next installment in Rockstar's open-world action series (thanks VG247). Along the way Dan Houser replies to a question about the prospects for a PC edition of the game, which we've presuming is a given based on history. Here's word:

Everything else is up for consideration. That's all I can give you. The main thing is we are not... we are a third-party publisher. 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.

I don't get it....selling at least a few hundred thousand copies on Steam isn't attractive?

If the PC wasn't a "market", then Bethesda would not have put Skyrim on Steam. And in the end, I think the PC version of Skyrim may have outsold both consoles combined?

Totally different demographic though, Elder Scrolls is one of the longest running PC franchises and RPGs are typically a PC genre stronghold.

I agree that they could easily sell a mil on Steam and it would be very profitable considering the majority of the expenses were already paid.

If anything, this seems to say that a PC version might never happen...

That's an impressively long non-answer he has there.

So doesn't really answer anything at all then, par for the course these days. I swear RPS is the only place that does decent interviews and actually hammers on the source to get real answers for questions whenever possible. I guess reading between the lines would indicate that its not actually planned which is frustrating but not surprising to me.

With talk like that from Rockstar themselves though, I certainly wouldn't take a PC version for granted just based on history alone.
