Grand Theft Auto 5 News: Amazon France Lists Game for PC Release

By Luke Caulfield , Updated Jan 21, 2014 07:11 PM EST

Germany took a shot, and now France is firing back. No, I'm not talking about World War II, I'm talking about Amazon trying to figure out when (if at all) Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V will ever come lumbering over to the PC platform.

Despite no word from the developer on the matter, Amazon France currently has the game listed for a PC arrival, and is even accepting pre-orders. You can see the listing for yourself by clicking the link, all with those lovely looking French words, all no doubt beautifully sounding and blissfully ignorant of any confirmation from either the game's developer or publisher.

While it's widely accepted the game will one day release on PC, it's unprofessional of any business to advertise it before (if at all) there's been any official announcement on the matter. To the site's credit, it's at least listed as "available soon."

This isn't the first time Amazon has taken a stab at guessing the game's arrival on PC. Just before Christmas, it was reported that an Amazon Germany staffer let slip that on Christmas Eve, Rockstar would announce the game would be coming to PC in March. Obviously, we all know how that turned out. The company has also been incorrect a number of times before regarding the game's original release date, as well as guessing at a possible next-gen version as well.

Big as the company may be, it seems that just like the rest of us, the mega retailer has little if any insider information.

Despite a petition to bring the game to PC with signatures numbering in the hundreds of thousands, Rockstar hasn't commented on a PC release for the game. To date, the only official word on a PC release came from Rockstar Vice President Dan Houser, who said, "we're currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don't have any details to share about a PC version at this time."
