We saw the release of the first gameplay video for Rockstar's highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) yesterday. Some PC gamers are a little uneasy that Rockstar never seems to mention their favourite gaming platform, though the GTA series of games have always eventually got to the PC. Now we have some positive signs of PC development at Rockstar, as it is seeking to hire the staff to port GTA 5 over to PCs, among other titles.

A job vacancy advertisement appeared on the official Rockstar Games site seeking a Graphic Programmer whose responsibilities would include bringing Rockstar studio's latest titles to the PC platform. The advert has unfortunately been pulled (perhaps they have hired someone already?) but not before Rockstar stalking site Rockstar Watch saved the details. The relevant text from the ad is reproduced below.

"Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform. Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."

PC Gamer points out that Rockstar's latest released and announced titles are Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto 5. So we have a good chance to see both these titles arrive on PC in the coming months.

Anyone for tennis?

'Rockstar Watch' also provide another snippet from the vacancy advertisement suggesting continued PC support through the lifespan of the next-gen consoles. The employee will be "working with skilled developers on Next Generation games".

GTA V for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is scheduled for a 17th September release. A PC version usually follows about six months later, reports 'Rockstar Watch'.

And a Crytek job ad seeks expertise to bring CryEngine to Linux. Exciting time to be a PC gamer.
If I get RDR and GTA5 on PC I think I might explode.
I can see GTA5 coming to PC as all the other games have (plus it WAS a pc game) however I can't see them doing RDR now its been a few years since release.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, a 2010 game, is coming to the PC this August. We can just hope that Rockstar goes for it!
If they release GTA V on PC, I hope they do it properly and not the half assed job they did with GTA IV. We might have to wait a while though, they will most likely release it alongside the PS4 and Xbox one systems.
