A new entry for the Grand Theft Auto series is in development

Rockstar Games has confirmed that they have started working on a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, a successor for Grand Theft Auto 5. When discussing the new game today, Rockstar confirmed that they aim to deliver a significant move beyond Grand Theft Auto 5, which is something that the next-generation hardware capabilities of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S should be able to provide. 

Next-generation upgrades for Grand Theft Auto 5 are in the works for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, offering gamers support for new graphics features like ray-tracing, HDR options, texture/draw distance upgrades, and 60 FPS gameplay. Additionally, platform-specific upgrades like haptic feedback are planned.

    With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered — and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.

On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and cannot wait to step into the future with you!

Rockstar Games confirms that GTA 6 is in development

Grand Theft Auto 5 first launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and now the game is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. With the game's PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades, Grand Theft Auto 5 will have successfully spanned three console generations, giving Rockstar the space that they need to deliver the significant upgrades that they desire.

With SSD storage, huge CPU performance upgrades, and graphics chips that support hardware accelerated ray tracing, mesh shaders and various other new features, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 have the hardware needed to deliver the next-generation Grand Theft Auto game that gamers desire. Epic Games' The Matrix Awakens Tech Demo has already showcased what developers can deliver with the latest hardware. Now Rockstar needs to take those visuals and turn it into a real game.
