  • Will GTA 6 Be on PC?


    Vlad

    If you browse the official GTA 6 page, you can see, and we quote: Coming 2025 to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. While it’s great that we get to experience GTA 6 with all its glory on the new generation consoles, one question remains up there: Will GTA 6 Be on PC?

    Rockstar Games and PC

    So far, we’ve gotten the silent treatment regarding the release of the game on PC, and Rockstar is no stranger to delaying the PC release by an average of a year ahead of the console release.

    Still, will there be a PC version this time around?

    Truth be told, it’s unlikely for a studio as big as Rockstar to skip a platform as huge as the PC for the release of its biggest game yet. Here is why:

    ●      GTA IV, GTA V, and RDR2 are some of the best-selling Rockstar games of all time. Despite a hefty delay, all of them had a PC port later on.

    ●      Consoles may get the jump ahead, but PCs always catch up and surpass consoles. It’ll be unwise for Rockstar to not allow powerful PCs to put the beauty of their game on full display.

    So, we can assume that a PC version of GTA 6 is coming sooner or later, but the next question is: When?

    GTA 6 PC Release Date Estimation

    Let’s take a look at GTA 4, which was released on April 29, 2008, for PS3 and Xbox 360. It wasn’t until eight months later, in December, that we got to see the PC version.

    GTA 5 was the next big anticipation, and it was released on the same consoles on September 17, 2013. Then, on November 18, 2014, Rockstar Released GTA 5 again for PS4 and Xbox One. Finally, five months later, we got the PC version on April 14, 2015. That’s around two years away from the release date!

    RDR2 also had a one-year delay of the PC version, with the console version releasing on October 26, 2018, and the PC counterpart coming out on November 5, 2019. So, we can safely say that if the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are coming out in 2025, the PC version may come out in 2026, if not 2027.

    Why Won’t We Have a PC Version at Launch?

    According to ex-Rockstar Mike York, console versions sell better and are easier to develop than PC versions.

    For a game that took over 10 years of development for consoles, we can’t even begin how nightmarish it is going to be to release a PC port.

    Fans may not fancy waiting a couple more years for the PC version, but they’ll still choose an early console version release instead of waiting two or even three more years for an all-around release.

    GTA 6 Expected System Requirements

    While not entirely accurate, and based on the projections of system requirements across releases, Sportskeeda estimated that the system requirements will be as follows:

    Minimum Requirements:

    ●      OS: Windows 10/11

    ●      Processor: Intel Core i7 8700K or AMD Ryzen 7 3700x

    ●      Memory: 16GB RAM

    ●      Graphics: Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 or AMD Radeon RX6500XT

    ●      DirectX: Version 12

    Recommended Requirements:

    ●      OS: Windows 11 64-bit

    ●      Processor: Intel Core i9-10900K/AMD Ryzen 5 5900X

    ●      Memory: 32GB RAM

    ●      Graphics: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080/AMD Radeon RX 6800XT

    ●      DirectX: Version 12

    In both cases, you’ll need at least 150 GB of storage space, preferably on a solid-state drive (SSD). It may be a huge chunk of space, but gamers are somewhat used to it. We’re looking at you, Warzone.

    So, will Grand Theft Auto 6 be on PC? Yes. Will it be any time soon? Unfortunately not. We don’t expect a PC version of GTA 6 before 2026, if not 2027.

    However, the console version release should give people the chance to experience the game and provide Rockstar with enough feedback to bake the game to perfection until it’s released on PC. For now, all we can do is wait.
