After the shock announcement that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming out this fall for the PC, it seems that Nvidia may have jumped the gun and made a mistake. Nvidia's European PR manager, Ben Berraondo, revealed today that the mention of Grand Theft Auto V was a mistake, and that it was only meant to express enthusiasm for the games industry.

Berraondo has issued Eurogamer with the following statement: "Please note, during our Thursday's earnings call, our investor relations team provided a list of important games that gamers are looking forward to on PC this fall, and included Grand Theft Auto 5 on that list. This statement was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general, and was not intended to represent specific knowledge possessed by Nvidia. Nvidia does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability. We deeply regret the error."

Despite this, considering that Grand Theft Auto IV had a PC version (although released a few months later), and the current petition to bring Grand Theft Auto V to PC, the game most likely won't skip the platform. Grand Theft Auto V is set to release on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on the 17th of September, 2013 worldwide.
