Houser: "Everything else is up for consideration" on GTA V's platforms

Rockstar Games is not a platform holder so they aren't tied to any specific hardware, and as a third-party publisher they "love all of them in different ways." They look for "appropriate business".

They're all about the content and that's not tech exclusive, and "that's the fun in what we do," says Dan Houser. He wouldn't confirm or dismiss a PC or Wii U release for Grand Theft Auto V.

"Everything else is up for consideration. That's all I can give you," Rockstar VP Dan Houser teased IGN. Keep that Gameboy Advanced warmed up - you never know.

"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," continued Houser, talking business speak and fiscal responsibility.

"If that's on Apple we put something on Apple," he added. "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."

Grand Theft Auto V has been revealed for Xbox 360 and PS3, with it releasing in spring 2013.

"...He wouldn't confirm or dismiss a PC or Wii U release for Grand Theft Auto V..."

Wait, so there's actually a theoretical chance that GTA won't be launched on the PC?
