Next Generation Grand Theft Auto V Rumors Heat Up

by GH Staff

It has been one week since the Portuguese online retailer Worten claimed that Rockstar’s latest game, Grand Theft Auto V, would be making its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in June. Today, we are receiving reports that another Portuguese online retailer named GamingReplay is claiming the exact same thing.

There is much debate to be had when it comes to Grand Theft Auto V’s appearance on the next generation of consoles. Rockstar has stated time and time again that they refuse to comment on a new version of the game. Gamers have speculated that Rockstar, in an attempt to improve the graphical capabilities of the game, will likely port the popular title. When you think about it, it makes sense: Grand Theft Auto V came out only two months before the new consoles did, leaving many wondering why they hadn’t simply developed for both generations.

According to GamingReplay, “Grand Theft Auto V arrives at next generation in June!!! What are you waiting for to be one of the first to play it on your PS4 or Xbox One?” Some people are not waiting, as many retailers have begun to take pre-orders for a next-gen iteration of the title despite Rockstar’s lack of a confirmation.

Digging a bit deeper, we have found that there is a Czech retailer listing the game for next-generation consoles as well, giving the release date of June 13. Being that this is a Friday, a popular release day for games, some people think that it is absolutely possible. In addition, there seems to be a promising audience for ported games, as we have seen with the success of the latest Tomb Raider’s jump in generations. This could potentially further influence Rockstar’s decisions.

Would you re-purchase Grand Theft Auto V for the new consoles? What would you hope to see? Let us know in the comments.
