Grand Theft Auto V certainly begins to feel timeless as soon as you weigh in its release date. As it turns out, the world’s most popular open-world action-adventure title has made landfall on 5 platforms, and this is exclusive of the next-gen release, which is due by the end of 2021.
It’s safe to say that GTA V has hauled in money like no other title in the history of gaming. It strode into the world as a direct successor of its prequel and made $1 billion in its first three days. The anticipation for the game was simply through the roof and developer Rockstar North still manages to keep the free-roamer fresh and relevant through exclusive in-game content that particularly revolves around GTA Online.
Making sure that the game makes the best of what it can before the next iteration in the franchise is introduced, GTA V’s re-release for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S is slated for November 11, according to PlayStation Blog Germany. In addition, the write-up has revealed an interesting piece of information regarding the arrival of the game on next-gen consoles, or the PlayStation 5 to be exact. According to the blog, GTA 5 will host 4K resolution and 60 FPS on Sony’s frontrunner with fast boot-up times and a ton of other features.
Among Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, Deathloop, Battlefield 2042, and Life is Strange: True Colors, Grand Theft Auto V will also arrive in 2021. The translated description for the game in the blog reads, “You have never seen the criminal metropolis Los Santos so beautiful when the skyline shines thanks to a bold graphic update in crisp 4K resolution and you make the city extremely smooth and unsafe thanks to a smooth 60 FPS.”
Harnessing the power of the PlayStation 5 under the hood, fans of the series are now in for a treat, as Rockstart has also promised the fanbase a standalone GTA Online game, that is exempt from the single-player campaign of GTA V. That, and $1 million of in-game money each month for existing PS+ players until GTA Online releases. All this was publicly stated by Rockstar when they first announced the next-generation version of their humongous IP.
