GTA 5 and GTA Online will receive PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions on November 11 – and Rockstar has promised ‘surprises’ related to the upcoming 20th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto 3.
Announced in a press release, the new-generation upgrades of both Grand Theft Auto 5 and GTA Online will be “expanded and enhanced”, and come with as-yet-unannounced new features. Updates added to GTA Online this summer will also “include special benefits for players to take advantage of in these expanded and enhanced versions when they drop.”
More intriguingly, Rockstar is also promising “surprises” related to the 20th anniversary of the release of GTA 3 – including some related to GTA Online. It’s not clear just yet what that will entail. GTA 3 was first released on October 22, 2001, so it shouldn’t be all too long before Rockstar begins announcing what those surprises could be.
GTA Online will be released as a standalone game on both PS5 and Xbox Series consoles – and for three months after release, it’ll be totally free to PS5 owners. No pricing has been revealed for the Xbox version at launch. PlayStation Plus subscribers can claim $1 million of in-game currency every month until the updated version launches.
GTA Online was announced for PS5 and Xbox Series consoles last year, with exclusive content announced for new-gen versions and PC. Recently, Rockstar implemented a fan fix to improve loading times in GTA Online – and taht should only be faster on new hardware.
Of course, the big question for most is, “but what about GTA 6?” While we know GTA 6 is in development, Rockstar has never formally commented on when it might arrive. That hasn’t stopped fans looking for clues in GTA Online, however.
