GTA V Coming To PS4, Xbox One And PC This Autumn


Rockstar’s blockbuster will be going next gen this year, and it’ll work with GTA Online saves from both Xbox 360 and PS3.

It was obviously coming at some point but Sony were the first to confirm that Grand Theft Auto V will be out on PlayStation 4 this autumn. Naturally, they didn’t mention anything about the Xbox One (or PC) but they also didn’t claim that the PlayStation 4 version is exclusive.

The way it was announced may have been meant to imply otherwise but the version of the trailer release by Rockstar themselves clearly shows it’s coming to Xbox One and PC as well, as you can see below.

Sony also mentioned that your saves from both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will work if you upgrade to the next gen, so you won’t have to start again. Although you almost certainly will in terms of the story campaign.

Even Rockstar’s own trailer has footage taken from the PlayStation 4 version, and according to their blog it will feature ‘across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail. Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions’.

Also promised are ‘new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover’. The PC version will also have a video editor.

The graphical improvements will carry over to GTA Online as well, which right from the start will include all the added features that have been accrued in the months since the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were released.

Rockstar owners Take-Two recently hinted there was a next gen game on the way before April and this is presumably it. Which may mean that Red Dead Redemption 2, or any of the other hoped-for Rockstar sequels, are further away than previously thought.
