Despite their omission from all released promotional materials, Wii U and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V may still be in the cards.
Rockstar vice president Dan Houser explained to IGN–in response to why the two platforms were left out of the game’s recent marketing pushes–that any options beyond the two confirmed consoles were up for consideration.
Everything else is up for consideration,” Houser said, That’s all I can give you. The main thing is we are not…we are a third-party publisher. We’re not Nintendo, we’re not Sony, we’re not Microsoft.
We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there’s the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market. If that’s on Apple we put something on Apple. Wherever it might be. I think that’s the fun in what we do. We see ourselves as a content company that uses technology. We don’t make it; we use it to make the most fun stuff.”
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime threw in his two cents regarding Rockstar’s interest in the firm’s latest hardware.
The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U.” Fils-Aime told MTV, In the end, it is Nintendo’s responsibility to have a large installed base, to have development tools that help the developers and publishers create great content, and essentially create an environment where teams like Rockstar can bring their very best content to our platform, and if we do that hopefully the very best content throughout the entire industry will show up on Wii U.”
Grand Theft Auto V is officially slated for launch this coming spring for PS3 and Xbox 360.
