As the petition asking Rockstar to bring GTA 5 to PC passes 650,000 signees, yet more evidence for a PC edition has emerged. This time it’s a 150-page bug log detailing issues arising from hundreds of GTA 5 builds tested between April 2009 and August 2013, with reference to a “PC version” from as early as June 2012.
The document contains over 170 references to PC development bugs, numerous notes on DX11 support and a related “smog” weather setting, mention of a “lastgen” toggle used during development and bugs relating to 64-bit system testing.
The log confirms the date of every major control system overhaul, with internal deadlines leading up to press showings. There are annotations from Rockstar developers like programmer Robert Schmitz and senior level designer Kenneth Ross, and references to proprietary Rockstar management systems.
It was leaked via an XML file a while back, on September 23 2013, and has existed as an open secret on the GTA forums and other fan communities since then. The list was recently hosted on a public Google drive server which now returns a 404 message, but here are a few excerpts highlighting 64 and 32-bit versions of the game, references to DirectX 11 smog and more.
Here are a couple of the hundreds of references to picked up PC bugs to be fixed.
