A GTA 6 PC release just became more plausible, but with no date “set in stone”

Take-Two Interactive CEO all but confirms a GTA 6 PC release, but implies that an announcement is a long way away.

During a TD Cowen conference in New York on May 30, 2024, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick refused to give a straight answer on when a GTA 6 PC edition will be announced, but stated an announcement addressing a port would likely come “in due time.”

The CEO’s response was, to say the least, indirect and not entirely clear. When asked if the lack of an announcement for PC was set in stone – which is to say if a PC release was in the works or not in a roundabout way – Zelnick confusingly responded:

“The lack of an announcement is not something that could be set in stone near as I could tell, because the only thing that happens after the lack of an announcement is an announcement, I suppose, or the continuing lack of an announcement. I guess that could happen too. It doesn’t seem to me that either would be set in stone.”

As nearly impenetrable as that response was, what Zelnick appears to be saying is that a PC announcement is possible, but Rockstar have not committed to anything just yet, as we could infer from Zelnick’s continued comments:

“Rockstar has an approach to platforms which we’ve seen before, and they will make more announcements in due time. I do believe that the right strategy for our business is to be where the consumer is, and historically what this company has done is address consumers anywhere they are, or any platform, that makes sense, over time.”

It seems highly unlikely that Rockstar will avoid creating a GTA 6 PC port, especially now that Red Dead Redemption 1 is making its way onto the platform after 13 years of being console-exclusive.

Considering the sheer success of GTA 5 alone across all platforms with both its singleplayer and, crucially, its GTA Online mode, a GTA 6 PC port is all but inevitable.

Unfortunately, the historical patterns Zelnick points to could mean that a PC port won’t arrive until 2026 or 2027, but hopefully (and most likely certainly) not 2038 with the full 13 years that some players had to endure with Red Dead Redemption 1.
