Grand Theft Auto IV was released on PC, but when Grand Theft Auto V was announced, a personal computer version was nowhere to be seen.

It's still nowhere to be seen, but Rockstar is at least talking about it, Dan Houser telling IGN that "Everything else is up for consideration. That's all I can give you."

"The main thing is we are not... we are a third-party publisher", Houser added, speaking about both a possible PC and Wii U version. "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. If that's on Apple we put something on Apple. 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."

While a PC version seems likely, don't count out a Wii U edition either; GTA games have graced Nintendo handhelds in the past, and that Wii U gamepad must be interesting to somebody at Rockstar.

DISCUSSION

Seeing how China Town Wars is one the the highest rated DS games of all time but sold like poop and had to be ported to iOS and PSP just to cover development costs I think Rockstar will think a lot before putting GTA5 on WiiU. If they don't even consider PC important enough to have a version ready at the same time as the consoles I really doubt they will bother making a WiiU version. It's not like Nintendo had that much success with M rated games and as if the WiiU had 50 million consoles sold when GTA5 come out.
