2014 or 2015 for the New Versions of GTA V?


GTA V PS4

No one wants to wait any longer than they have to for GTA V’s release on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but while Rockstar announced at E3 that the new version would be out before the end of the year, some people feel it won’t.

CVG‘s James Jarvis came out of Gamescom concerned about the lack of GTA V news. In his opinion, Rockstar is running out of time to make an announcement. Companies usually provide information in the months ahead of the release date, in order to build up excitement and get fans interested. Jarvis notes that prior to GTA V’s original release for the Xbox 360 and PS3 last year, CVG previewed it “four months before the game’s launch.” You can check out the video below for his complete reasons for being concerned, as well as some interesting comments he has about GTA V’s cut content.

While this may be cause for some worry, we wouldn’t give up on a 2014 release just yet. Rockstar doesn’t have to build
anticipation for this the same way they would for a brand new release, and the year isn’t over. Previous rumors that placed the date in October are starting to feel unlikely, but a November or December launch is still well within reach.

What do you think? In what year will the new versions of GTA V come out?


Rockstar Wants to Exceed Expectations With Next-Gen GTA V


GTA V PS4

GTA V has already been extremely successful, and fans are thrilled at the thought of playing it on the Xbox One, PS4, or PC, especially with the graphical improvements seen in the trailer and screenshots. In an interview with MVC, Take-Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnick spoke about the upcoming versions of GTA V:

“In the case of GTA V, nothing but the very best will satisfy Rockstar. They want to blow the consumer away. Whatever the expectation is, they want to exceed it. When you see GTA V on next-gen, I want you to tell me whether it is or isn’t better than your expectation. I can guarantee it will be better.”

Zelnick believes GTA V’s sales numbers will climb even higher, as even with 34 million sales, there are still a lot of people who haven’t played it.

It’s great to see such high praise for the remastered GTA V, not that we expected Take-Two to say anything bad about it. Of course, fan expectations are often unrealistic, and Zelnick’s challenge has sparked claims of even higher expectations than before.

Are you planning to buy GTA V for the Xbox One, PS4, or PC? What are your expectations, and do you think Rockstar can exceed them?


New GTA V Release Rumor Points to November 14

By now, you probably know GTA V will be released later this year for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. There still isn’t an official release date. The last rumor we heard placed it on October 28 for all three versions. Now, a new rumor suggests at least the PC version of GTA V will come out on November 14.

This morning, a Danish retailer called Coolshop listed a release date of November 14, 2014 for GTA V. It has since been changed to the placeholder date of December 31, but PC Gamer got a screenshot beforehand.

Some fans are disappointed at the thought of such a late release date, but it’s probably better than if it joins the huge lineup set to release this October. This is still just a rumor, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything official.


GTA V: Last-gen Versus Current-gen Comparison


GTA V comparison

Last week, GTA V was officially announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We got to see a trailer and some comparison screenshots, but thanks to DigitalFoundry, we can get an even better look at the extent of the visual changes.

This video re-creates the announcement trailer with footage from the PS3 version of the game, and places it beside the PS4 trailer for a comparison. Check it out.

As you can see, the changes go beyond mere polish. The wildlife and more dynamic environments are two aspects that really stand out. What do you think?


GTA V on PS4/X1/PC Might Release October 28


GTA V amazon

We know GTA V will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime this fall, but no official release date was given with the announcement. However, some users caught a glimpse of a potential release date on Amazon.

Yesterday, Amazon listed the games with a release date of October 28, 2014, although the date has since been replaced with the generic placeholder date of December 31. October 28 would make a lot of sense, as it’s in the fall and on a Tuesday. Still, consider this a rumor until the date is made official.

The retailer listings also let us know that the game will cost $59.99. Are you planning to get GTA V for the PS4/X1/PC?


GTA V Confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

It’s taken a long time and a lot of rumors to reach this point, but at last we can discuss the official release of GTA V on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. At Sony’s E3 press conference last night, it was finally announced. Check out the trailer to see what it will look like on a more powerful set of systems.

As you can see, there is more to the visual appeal of this new version than just shinier graphics. More details and depth allow for more vivid and realistic environments, and there will be new animals (so far fans have discovered cats, pugs, and hammerhead sharks), weather effects, and more. The PC version of GTA V will include a video editor.

GTA Online is also a part of this enhanced experience, and will have new weapons, properties, vehicles, jobs, and customizations. Best of all, if you’ve already played GTA Online on the PS3 or Xbox 360, you can transfer your data to one of the new versions.


Will the Wait for PS4/X1/PC GTA V End at E3?


GTA V High Life 4

We’ve spent a long time waiting for the announcement that GTA V will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and/or PC. There have been plenty of rumors and random retail listings, but nothing concrete. Well, if Rockstar is going to announce it, there’s a pretty good chance it’ll be at E3.

Rockstar doesn’t usually go to E3, but as pointed out by gaming site Rockstarturk, Take-Two Interactive is going to be there. Now, Take-Two is responsible for many more series besides Grand Theft Auto, but don’t forget all the rumors that place a PS4/X1/PC release in the middle of June. Some even marked out June 13 as the release date, and what would be more dramatic than for Take-Two to announce that the game is not only on its way, but will be available immediately after E3?

Then there’s the mysterious game Rockstar will release for the PS4 and Xbox One before March 2015.

We have just over two weeks to wait until E3. If GTA V isn’t announced for more systems then, we’ll be back to the waiting game.


GTA V Steam Key Hints at PC Release

Hope springs eternal–in this case, the hope of thousands of fans that GTA V will be brought to the PC. Rumors abound, and listings pop up from time to time. This time, it’s a digital listing. Specifically, Steam keys are up for sale.

Simplycdkeys even has a nice picture of the box art on the product page, and it claims the game will be released on September 19, 2014. It explains how to activate the product on Steam and everything, although you won’t receive your key until 24 hours before the release day.

We’ve seen so many of these by now, it’s hard to take this one more seriously than just a tiny rumor. On the other hand, the GTA series always winds up on the PC, so it should be just a matter of time.

We’ll keep you updated.


German Retailer Says GTA V is Coming to PC/X1/PS4

It’s another rumor from a retailer, but this one has more credibility than most, because it’s more than just a listing for GTA V on the PC, Xbox One, or PS4 found on a retailer’s website. The German retailer Saturn.de Tweeted:

Translated, that means:

Because I was just asked: the release of #GTAV for PC and XBOX one PS4 is expected for June. #rumors #abgeNICKt

Of course, many false rumors have come out before, so don’t set too much stock in this. Maybe all the rumors alone will convince Rockstar to make an official announcement.


GTA V Coming to PC This September?

Yes, it’s another GTA V PC rumor. At this point, we really wish Rockstar would just say one way or another if the game is coming to the PC or not.

The latest store to list the game for preorder is Simplycdkeys.com. This online retailer claims GTA V will be released for the PC on September 14.

As always with these sorts of rumors, take this report with a pinch of salt, but don’t lose hope. One of these days, it may be true. We’ll keep you updated.
