GTA 5 'Expanded and Enhanced' is coming to PlayStation 5 in 2021.
By this time, GTA 5 will have spanned 3 separate generations. Not many games can make this boast and it’s a testament to the success of the title.
The game has continued to attract new players and entertain veterans since 2013. It’s GTA Online mode has generated over $1 billion in revenue and shows no signs of slowing down.
Therefore, we're not surprised that GTA 5 Expanded and Enhanced will be making its way to PS5 in 2021. Rockstar Games may be staying tight-lipped about GTA 6, but at least fans will still be able to explore Liberty City in all its crime-ridden glory.
What Do We Know?
Rockstar hasn’t told us much about GTA 5 Expanded and Enhanced, but we can really make a few predictions. We expect this edition to include the full game (as well as GTA Online) and all of its updates so far.
The trailer shown at Sony’s event showed scenes from GTA Online as well as the single player campaign. Therefore we feel like this prediction is a highly likely.
The next logical update would be bringing GTA 5 in line with next gen technology. GTA 5 is already playable in 4K on PS4 Pro and PC, but it now could be making the jump from 30fps to 60fps on PS5.
From what we’ve seen from GTA 5 gameplay on PC, this will look incredible on a large TV screen. 60fps is quite the jump from 30fps and with the PS5 capable of 8K, GTA 5 could look almost photo-real.
GTA 5 Expanded And Enhanced Coming to Xbox Series X?
Rumours also suggest GTA 5 Expanded and Enhanced could be coming to Xbox Series X too. This is unconfirmed at the moment, but it seems plausible.
Announced at a Sony event, this means there’s likely some arrangement is in place between Sony and Rockstar. There may even be a timed exclusivity deal.
GTA Online is a significant money-maker, so it makes sense for either Sony or Microsoft to have pushed for this. That’s despite the game already existing on multiple other platforms in some form.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated as this story develops. At the moment, Rockstar are yet to confirm exactly what (if any) new content is coming.
It will be interesting to see what changes and updates come to GTA 5 Expanded and Enhanced when it releases in 2021.
