Grand Theft Auto is one of the games with the most fans in the world, and after GTA V, Rockstr also launched an online version that raised the game’s bar and drove even more people to play, and this online version has released several updates that have made the game very interesting.
With the arrival of new consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S, there was a great expectation that Rockstar could launch GTA 6, however this should not happen anytime soon, in fact rumors suggest that this will only happen in 2025 , so Rockstar continues to bet heavily on current versions. On the one hand it has already announced a version of GTA 5 for the new generation of consoles, which should offer better graphics, and has also just announced news from Grand Theft Auto Online.
According to the announced now, Grand Theft Auto Online for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S will include vehicle updates that won’t be available on older consoles, according to new details from Rockstar Games.
“Selected vehicles will be able to be upgraded with all-new speed improvements and much more,” Rockstar wrote during the announcement of the upcoming Los Santos Tuners expansion. “These special updates will only be available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S versions of Grand Theft Auto V.”
Despite having been announced over a year ago, we’re still very much in the dark about what’s new for the Grand Theft Auto V for next-gen consoles, which will be available on November 11th. It’s a safe bet that the game, which was first released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 nearly 8 years ago, will look much better and load a lot faster, but that just explains the “enhanced” part of the “expanded and expanded” description itself. enhanced” by Rockstar of upcoming re-releases .
“Next generation versions of Grand Theft Auto V will feature a series of technical improvements, visual updates and performance improvements to make the most of the latest hardware, making the game look better and more responsive than ever before,” explained Rockstar at the time. . Official word on next-gen releases has been equally vague since then.
As is often the case, fans were offended at the idea of Grand Theft Auto Online content being blocked for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, with some calling the move “greedy” by Rockstar, as well. it doesn’t help that consoles are still not easy to purchase, as there is a lot of shortages.
After all, Rockstar eliminated Grand Theft Auto Online updates on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2015 to focus on then new versions of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s only a matter of time before PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S become the studio’s sole prerogative.
Still, it can be hard to see a game you’ve devoted so much time to following that path. Grand Theft Auto Online may continue to thrive on the previous generation of consoles, but that small piece of exclusive content for the next generation is probably a good indication that it will someday go away, as it has with previous consoles.
