People ask Rockstar questions all the time, and today the company chose to answer some of the most common ones in a special Asked & Answered feature. These may be things you’ve also wondered about, so now we can give you official answers.
If you were hoping the new first-person mode for GTA V would come to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions as well, we have to disappoint you. Due to the memory required for GTA V’s first-person, it will remain limited to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game.
Heists, on the other hand, are coming to every version of GTA V and are planned for early 2015, as announced yesterday. However, Rockstar also confirmed that cross-platform co-op, such as PS3 and PS4 players working together in GTA Online, is currently impossible. If that disappoints you, don’t forget that you can transfer
your GTA Online progress to the new versions. Transfers to the PC version are possible from any of the four consoles, even if you’ve already transferred your progress between generations.
While there may eventually be GTA V and GTA Online updates that can’t be supported by the older consoles, that time is still far off and Rockstar will support the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions as long as they can. Speaking of updates, the rumors of holiday DLC may hold some truth, as “a few seasonal treats” are on the way.
Many of the questions Rockstar receives are requests for new features. This Q&A didn’t give definite answers to those listed (leaving your car running, animals in GTA Online, and gambling options), but reiterated that you should email in all of your feedback and suggestions.
Finally, fans also ask the company questions about its future plans. If you aren’t a fan of the new GTA V first-person mode, rest assured that Rockstar still plans to make solid third-person games. And when it comes to other series, such as Red Dead Redemption… sequels are a possibility, but nothing is confirmed.
Check out the Q&A for the full answers, and don’t forget to send Rockstar any of your own unanswered questions. The article closed with a promise that GTA V PC requirements will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
