The Grand Theft Auto 5 PC petition has surpassed over 600,000 signatures since its creation last month.
The petition had around 40,000 signatures last year but that number exploded since the launch in September.
The petition reads:
"Please release GTA V on PC. GTA games have been a large part of so many people's lives and it's a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform. Things like modifications have always been a HUGE part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have. I hope you consider the release of GTA V on PC as it'll make many people very happy!"
Much like GTA 4, GTA 5 could arrive a few months later than the console release and arrive within the first quarter of 2014, according to EuroGamer.
"I don't think it'll be console-exclusive very long. But that's what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content," Chris Silva, director of marketing for Intel notebooks, told PC Gamer. "Somebody paid a lot of money to make sure that title was exclusive."
Two weeks ago, a user on Reddit claimed they had been testing the game for the PC as a Beta tester for Rockstar games.
User DevBuild is playing as the character, Franklin, and screenshots a picture of Taskmanager to show the game is running and not a fake. However, many in the gaming community feel these screencaps were easily doctored.
Grand Theft Auto V became the fastest-selling entertainment product ever; smashing sales records all over the world, and was originally estimated to make $1 billion in its first month, however, amazingly it overcame that feat. in just three days after making more than $800 million on day one.
