Rockstar Games has announced the release date for the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online.
Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen consoles will receive enhanced versions of GTA V and its standalone multiplayer companion on November 11, 2021. It was announced for next-gen last June.
Rockstar promises “a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the console’s powerful new hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever.”
“This summer’s updates to GTA Online will include special benefits for players to take advantage of in these expanded and enhanced versions when they drop,” Rockstar adds. “Plus, in honor of the upcoming 20th anniversary of the genre-defining Grand Theft Auto III, we’ll have even more fun surprises to share — including some specifically for GTA Online players.”
This is the third console generation in a row that Grand Theft Auto V will make an appearance. The game originally launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2013. It was later ported to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
