Rockstar’s smash hit GTA V gets a third life on the newest generation of consoles.
Believe it or not, Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V is getting a second remastered version, this time for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The latest GTA 5 incarnation will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X in the second half of 2021. That pretty much puts an end to GTA 6 speculation, a game that is probably a very long way from being completed.
The good news for active GTA 5 players is that they will receive $1 million in GTA Online Maze Bank money per month until the launch of the PS5 version — if they are subscribed to PlayStation Plus. Just make sure you login at least once per month.
A standalone GTA Online version of GTA 5 will also be free on PS5 for the first three month’s of the game’s release.
GTA 5 has sold over 130 million copies across all platforms since 2013 and has generated roughly $6 billion and counting to date, making it not just one of the most successful video games ever, but most profitable entertainment products of all-time.
As for exactly how enhanced and expanded a third generation of GTA 5 really is… Stay tuned. Additional details from Rockstar Games below.
As recently revealed at Sony’s PlayStation 5 digital event, the adventures of Michael, Franklin and Trevor are coming to a new generation of consoles, including PlayStation 5, in the second half of 2021.
The new generation versions of GTAV will feature a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever.
And for the massive and vibrant community of Grand Theft Auto Online players worldwide, the journey through the ever-evolving, shared world of GTA Online will continue on to the new generation with more new updates including additional GTA Online content exclusive to the new consoles and PC.
