GTA 5 PS5 and Xbox Series X: release date

Posted by: SlayeR in News (Games)
GTA 5 PS5 and Xbox Series X is happening. The iconic GTA 5 will have released on three generations of consoles after it arrives, "expanded and enhanced", on the new consoles later this year. More than seven years after its first release, and 130 million copies shipped later, GTA 5 (and its multiplayer component, GTA Online) is still enormously successful for Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive. Even if it means you're not getting GTA 6 in the immediate future, the key intent here is keeping GTA Online's player base engaged across generations.

If you already have a PS5 or Xbox Series X, thanks to backwards compatibility you can of course play GTA 5 right now. But you won't get to enjoy any serious next-gen improvements until the new version is released in the second half of 2021. We still don't have an exact release date for when that will happen, nor do we know exactly what its expansions and enhancements will involve, but we're hoping it's only a matter of time before we find out more given we're already a few months into 2021. It's possible Take-Two's attendance at E3 2021 could bring us the news we're waiting for.

It seems likely, though, that if you want to keep playing GTA Online in the future, you'll probably want to pick up this new version eventually, as Rockstar has suggested that some future GTA updates won't be supported on Xbox One and PS4, with the publisher promising "more new updates including additional GTA Online content exclusive to the new consoles and PC".
