"With Microsoft now now not supporting Video games For Home windows Are living, it is now not any longer that you simply would possibly per chance perchance have faith to generate the extra keys desired to continue selling the present version of the recreation". "We are looking at other options for distributing GTA4 for PC and will share more information as soon as we can", Rockstar say.
