RUMOR - Grand Theft Auto 5 still has a shot at coming to Wii U?

As far as any official promotional materials go, it doesn't look like GTAV is coming to Wii U. I had given up hope on the game heading our way, but a recent rumor seems to point towards some hope.

Supposedly, inside information points to Take-Two's May 17th investor call as the reveal date. During that call, Take-Two is rumored to have details on GTA V hitting Wii U, PS4, the next Xbox and PC. In other words, it's not just Wii U that's on the cards for GTA V. Thanks to Godfree for the heads up!

If this is true, it will change perceptions of the WiiU and its third-party support.

Keeping my eyes peeled on this one. Although at this point, Watch_Dogs piques my interest far more than GTA... and it's already confirmed so we will see...

The Wii U is the only system that I own right now (totally slipped out on the PS3/360) so this would be amazing. What's up with all of this semi-big Wii U news today?! Love it.

Oh, and for anyone who cares, I just ordered The Last Story on Amazon today. Does anyone known if it is possible to get Xenoblade Wii for less than $100?!?! Sheesh!!

This has been the first game in the franchise that has caught my attention and I intended to buy it for the PC, but if it truly does release on the Wii U, I'd much rather have it there.

These rumors are cruel, especially if they don't play out.

And hopefully GTAV plays more like San Andreas and Vice City rather than GTAIV.

Wii U, the next gen system with the biggest install base for this year [and for possibly quite awhile afterwards] - Rockstar would've been stupid not to have figured this months back.

That all said, for me personally? GTA's last good entry was Vice City. V looks more of the same so far...

@GustyGardens

They said it isn't coming to the PC either.

:banghead:

Then, it seems, that my chances of playing it rely on this rumor.

I hope so. I don't particularly plan to get it on Wii U. Or at all. I always say "I MAY GET THAT GTA" and then don't, but I definitely think this would be a good move.

Is it still coming in September or was it pushed back? If it is still September and on all platforms, Rayman Legends is as good as bombed on all platforms.

I'd be surprised if this is true. But, even though I'm not a fan of the series (anyone want GTA 4 for PS3...bought that and wished I hadn't), I think Wii U needs big name titles like this, so I hope it does come to fruition.

I would like to see how that works out.

I am not a huge fan of sandbox games. The only ones I own are True Crime for GameCube and GTA :CW for the DS.
I bought GTA:CW for $20@BB to show my Nintendo support for GTA. So I suspect, I will do the same for GTA5 if it does come out on Wii U!!!

This would be a godsend to Wii U owners and Nintendo if true. I hope if it does come people buy it on Wii U (along with Watch Dogs) to show western 3rd party developers there is a market for their games on Nintendo platforms.

Didn't 2K say they weren't very interested in the WiiU? Might've been someone else...

I really dont care about GTA 5, there are more better and intellectually challenging games out there, ive never understood the hype with the GTA series, honestly, no gampeplay, bad uninteresting story line, horrible graphics, yes you can kill and steal but.... meh....

I would bet almost any money GTA5 won't be coming to the Wii U. It doesn't make sense from their perspective.

Interesting but in all honesty, I think PC would be the way to go on this game or any games that look as though they'll be heavily modded.
