Grand Theft Auto 5 may yet appear on other platforms, Rockstar boss Dan Houser has indicated.

The open world adventure is currently only slated for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but versions for PC and Wii U are "up for consideration", Houser told IGN.

"The main thing is we are not... we are a third-party publisher. 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."

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime told MTV over the weekend that he had noted positive comments from Rockstar about Wii U.

"The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U. In the end, it is Nintendo's responsibility to have a large installed base, to have development tools that help the developers and publishers create great content, and essentially create an environment where teams like Rockstar can bring their very best content to our platform," he said.

"If we do that hopefully the very best content throughout the entire industry will show up on Wii U."

Rockstar previously supported the Wii with versions of Bully, Manhunt 2 and Rockstar presents Table Tennis. The developer has yet to announce any Wii U projects.
