GTA 6 is currently only set to release on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, but a new statement by Take-Two’s CEO seems to indicate that a PC release is basically confirmed.

One of the most frustrating things about being a Rockstar Games fan who primarily plays on PC is that you’re often left waiting longer than the rest of the fan base.

In the case of GTA 5, PC players had to wait over a year and a half after the game launched on consoles before they finally got their hands on it.

More recently, Red Dead Redemption 2 also kept players waiting for over a year after its initial release.

GTA 6 isn’t even officially confirmed to come to PC at this point in time. But a statement by Take-Two Interactive may have just changed everything.

GTA 6 Is Almost Certainly Coming to PC

As spotted by VGC, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick recently gave an interview at a TD Cowen conference, in which he spoke about GTA 6’s lack of a PC port announcement.

When asked whether or not the game would be confirmed for PC further down the line, the Rockstar Games parent company boss had this to say:

“Rockstar has an approach to platforms which we’ve seen before, and they will make more announcements in due time.”

Zelnick went on to make a statement that sounds suspiciously like a confirmation that GTA 6 will indeed come to the platform.

“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, on any platform that makes sense, over time.”

However, as much as fans might want to take this as official confirmation that a PC port is on the way, it’s not quite 100% confirmed yet.

Why Is PC Coming Later?

That said, we’re certain that GTA 6 will make its way to PC in 2026, simply because that appears to be Rockstar Games’ business model with every major release.

The company likely knows that many PC players will purchase the game on a console initially before double-dipping once the port releases the following year.

And since that modus operandi has been working for the company for over a decade now, to great success, why bother changing it?

It’s also worth mentioning that it’s much harder to develop a game for PC than it is for consoles.

After all, while Rockstar needs to make sure GTA 6 runs smoothly on PS5 and Xbox Series X (as well as the budget Series S), that’s much less work than ensuring it runs on dozens of different GPU and CPU combinations for PC players.
