Throughout its game development process, Rockstar has always been especially favored by gamers for creating many famous names, prominent among which are Red Dead Redemption 2, Sleeping Dogs or the GTA series. cult. But besides that, Rockstar also disappointed many people when most of the games this developer created only had PC versions long after release. And GTA 6 is no exception. All for the following reasons.
Apparently, Rockstar always delays PC releases because of optimization issues. With the aim of bringing the best experience to players. The PlayStation or Xbox platforms have always been standardized, so the development team can focus on making the most of it in the game making process, as opposed to the varying hardware quality of PC gamers. This is also a way for Rockstar to avoid criticism about performance issues when releasing any blockbuster.
GTA 6 is no exception. When Rockstar can truly optimize this blockbuster on PC, that will be the time for new gamers to experience the game.
There are many opinions that Rockstar delays the launch of its projects on PC to implement a double “sales” measure. In simple terms, this means that publishers will re-release with updated or exclusive features to attract fans to buy a game twice.
This method has been done so successfully with GTA 5 when remembering that, with the GTA Online version and its microtransactions, Rockstar has made billions of dollars over the past decade.
Another possibility that makes Rockstar delay the launch of its PC version is to avoid hackers, at least until it has established a large enough community of players.
Online games are always like a magnet attracting modders and hackers – people who can make the experience of other gamers worse. This problem on PlayStation or Xbox platforms is relatively limited. As for PC gamers, perhaps there is no need to discuss the dominance of “magicians”.
