Rockstar Games has finally announced Grand Theft Auto V will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PC in the Fall this year. Rockstar has been silent ever since release on September 2013 when it comes to next gen.
This is the first announcement and it came from Sony Entertainment President and Group CEO Andrew House at E3 2014, who announced it would be coming to PS4. This was followed by Rockstar’s official announcement that Xbox One and PC versions would be coming at the same time, this Fall.
It is a year late, but Rockstar has said the new update to next-gen consoles includes “increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic and enhanced resolutions,” the power of the next-gen consoles and PC make it possible for the game to run at 1080p with solid 60 frames per second, we hope.
Grand Theft Auto Online will be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, Rockstar will port over players progress and items to the next-gen machines. All weapons, vehicles, properties, customisations and jobs developed on Online will also be ported over to the next-gen, throwing in a ton of content for the new players right from the get-go.
Rockstar Games has also announced a video editor will be available for PC users, allowing them to compile clips in Grand Theft Auto V easily. On the PS4 and Xbox One there are already integrate video editors and sharing tools built into the consoles, allowing users to share game footage and even stream through Twitch.TV.
Grand Theft Auto V is already a cash cow for the owners of Rockstar, Take-Two Interactive. The game sold 33 million copies on Xbox 360 and PS3 alone and the Grand Theft Auto Online universe continues to thrive and offer more user made content, we expect with the next-gen and PC the game will achieve over 50 million sales worldwide before 2015.
