Rockstar Has "Nothing New" To Report On Grand Theft Auto V Wii U

Posted by Andy Green

Rumours still persist

Recently Rockstar announced that it would unfortunately be delaying its hotly anticipated title Grand Theft Auto V from a spring release to fall. This led people to believe that the studio had possibly done so to accommodate the development of a Wii U and PC version of the game.

According to a tweet from GameSpot, Rockstar has said that it has "nothing new" to report on Grand Theft Auto V regarding Wii U or PC.

This isn't exactly a big denial from the developer, so it's unlikely the rumours will be going away anytime soon.

Would you like to see Rockstar bring Grand Theft Auto V to Wii U? That might be an obvious question, but let us know in the comments below anyway.

Never played any game of this series nor did i ever care about it. It would sure help the WiiU sales wise, so even though i dont want or like it, i hope it gets released. It would be a huge image and financial boost.

I only got into the series with Part 4 and would love to see the game on Wii U. It would send a strong message that at least the biggest games do show up on Wii U. Nintendo should be doing everything in their power to make it happen. I also think that the 2nd screen could be put to excellent use with the game.

Not a GTA fan, but this game would work so well on Wii U. Their loss.

Lego City Undercover looks better anyways. :)

I sure hope GTAV comes out on WiiU. 360 & ps3 are pretty much at the end of shelf life... WiiU is still a baby! It has so much more to offer.
My money is waiting.

I rented GTA Vice City one weekend (whenever it was that that came out) and couldn't really get into it, it all just felt a bit... pointless...

So, I have no personal interest in the game but it is important that Wii U begins to share in the multi-plat releases if Nintendo's to claw back any market share from Sony and Microsoft.

GTA has went downhill since 4 anyway, aside from Chinatown Wars. 4 took itself too seriously in my opinion, and the "New York" type city in sandbox games is overdone and boring. San Andreas had awesome, varied landscapes, which I believe was part of what made it so great.

I've never liked any Grand Theft Auto, I don't like how the series drew in Bro gamers and other such people because of the instense amount of sex and violence and also how the series glorified these aspects. I understand that this is a Mature rated series, but I've seen kids, way, way under the recommnded age play these games. Don't get me wrong I have no real deal with people being able to play violent games, but these games severely narrow the options new gamers have, especially the casual types like Bro gamers and as usual, parents have no real control or don't bother to control what their children play, thus when a child picks this game out, they might be exposed to all sorts of stuff.

But anyway, If this game is able to draw in more consumers to buy the WiiU, then go ahead and develop/publish this title for the system, just be aware that the media may attack Nintendo, rather than Microsoft or Sony, about the violence in video games.

The Wii U has the best controller options for a game like this. I would definitely prefer to have a constant map on touchscreen for GTA. The map and getting around is probably the most annoying part of the series. I would definitely wait a few extra months for a Wii U port.

I just hope GTAV doesn't go all pretentious like every other gaming series seems to. It's already on the way.

I'd get this if it came out on Wii U, though I suspect its delay may have something to do with PS4/Xbox 720 ports?

@datamonkey: I believe that the PS4 will release at the end of next year with the 720. Because wasn't the Wii U shown at E3 2011?

One of the few PS360 franchises I'd love to have on Wii U.
But I don't think it's coming, it's like Earthbound all these years.
I have to sit through this situation and look for something else to play.
We can't have all of the best.

Strong rumours going around that its been delayed because Microsoft paid them a huge chunk of money. Apparently the next box is getting an enhanced port and MS wanted to make sure it was a big game at launch instead of something their target audience played 6 months earlier.

Don't care. I totally regret selling my mint N64 at gamestop for a damn PS2 because of GTA III. I ended up rebuying my N64 a decade later. This genre is stale.

Played GTA 3 and Vice City on OG xbox and for me never really enjoyed them. This would be a huge release for Wii U so i hope it gets done and will purchase to show Rockstar support.

This is one I've been talking about with my brother for a while. I really hope the delay results in a Wii U version.

I'm not a fan of Rockstar. I've always thought they think of themselves too highly.

@Furealz PS4 may not come out that quickly after the announcement, but the 720 may. Microsoft doesn't do things like the rest of the industry. They released the 360 about 6 months after it was unveiled at E3 2006. Personally I think that rush may have been part of what lead to the RROD though, so perhaps they may learn from their mistakes.

Then again, last rumor I heard about the Oban chip they are using has a failure rate of over 90%.

It would be great to see this on Wii U. If not, well, they don't get my money. That simple. Also, I'll be enjoying Lego City: Undercover.

It's up to you if you want more money, Rockstar. It's a winner with the people who "know" the game, and yes, many of them actually own Nintendo systems. Your call Rockstar, and my $$$ too, is waiting...

I would buy it in a second, I keep imagining all the possibilities on the gamepad that could be brought over from Chinatown Wars.
