iFruit Yields PC GTA5 Clues

Blend Games has a confirmation of the presence of references to a PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V in the data within the new iFruit companion app for the just-released open-world action game. Following the lead in these tweets they extracted the contents of the app. Here's what they learned:

The folder contains all the app's assets, including PNG images for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC renditions of the GTA V manual. As an example, some of the files include a mention of a color wheel highlight bar for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC (to avoid any legal heat I won't completely type out the name of the file, but if anyone bothers to look, you'll know what I mean).

What's interesting though is that there is no showing of the PS4 or Xbox One versions of the game in the app's 4,724 files.

This new information actually leads me to believe that we need to reassess Rockstar's intent with GTA V: It may not launch simultaneously for PC and next-gen consoles.

In our other article noting that there was code pointing to a PC and PS4 version of GTA V, it left many believing that the next-gen version of the game would launch later on down the road alongside a PC version... but the app's assets leads me to believe the PC version could arrive a lot sooner than we all think. Having a PC assets added to the app will make the inclusion of the PC version to the app a quick hop, skip and a jump on the update front for Rockstar.
