Sony debuted the PlayStation 5 today, and one of the first announcements was that Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V is coming to the next-gen console in 2021.
GTA V was originally released on the PlayStation 3, before coming to PlayStation 4, so PS5 will be the third platform that the open-world game is released on.
It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it seems very unlikely that GTA V would be exclusive to PS5 on next-gen, so you should expect an announcement for Xbox Series X in due course.
Sony and Rockstar have had a special relationship for many years. Sony announced the PS4 edition of GTA V during its E3 briefing in 2014. Before that, Sony announced an exclusive deal with Rockstar for the espionage game Agent, but that game was never released.
GTA 5 is one of the most successful games in history. It has shipped more than 130 million copies to date, and the GTA Online multiplayer mode continues to make tons of money from microtransactions.
Rockstar is said to be working on GTA 6, but it presumably will not be released for some time. A recent report said it could launch in 2023 at the soonest, but this rumor was shot down.
This story is developing.
