Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto 5, which was released back in 2013, is widely considered one of the most expensive video games ever made. Both the development and marketing cost totaled, at the time, $265 million. Thus, it stands to reason why Rockstar is looking to milk every last penny out of the game.
Not that we're complaining though. GTA 5 is one of the greatest games ever made in our humble opinion, and thanks to a continuous stream of DLC for its multiplayer component, GTA Online, it continues to get better with age.
Its release on the PS5, as well as Xbox Series S/X, will be no different.
Up until now, while we have known that a new "Expanded and Enhanced" Grand Theft Auto V is coming, we haven't know how it will perform. Thankfully, PlayStation Germany was kind enough to grace us with that information.
Grand Theft Auto V is going to look pretty and smooth on the PS5
According to information coming straight from the official PlayStation Germany blog, Grand Theft Auto V will run at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on the PlayStation 5. This reveal should help ease some of the concerns about exactly how well the game will perform on current-gen consoles.
What is odd is that Rockstar has yet to reveal this information themselves, opting to stay quiet as we inch closer to the game's release date on November 11.
Now that the info is out in the wild, we wouldn't be surprised if Rockstar decides to confirm the boost with an official announcement in the next few days.
Speaking of the announcement, more information about GTA 5 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X is long overdue.
Among other useful intel, Rockstar hasn't confirmed if the next-gen version of GTA V is a free upgrade for old-generation players or a stand-alone version. If it is the latter, then it will join the likes of Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima to have standalone next-gen versions. However, the aforementioned games are more recent releases. Not to mention, both Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima will come with extra content on the PS5, which makes the extra cost worth it.
Improved resolution and frame rates might not be enough to convince gamers to buy the next-gen version of GTA 5, especially those who have already purchased the game before. How much extra content the "Expanded and Enhanced" version will have exactly is yet to be properly revealed.
Here's hoping that Rockstar comes out with more information about upcoming Grand Theft Auto games soon. In addition to the next-gen version of GTA 5, there are rumors that Rockstar is working on a GTA: Trilogy composed of Grand Theft Auto 3, San Andreas, and Vice City.
