New information has been revealed about how GTA 5 on PS5 and Xbox Series X will improve on the original game.
Grand Theft Auto 5 originally came out way back in 2013 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Developer Rockstar later released it on PS4 and Xbox One, and soon it'll be coming to next-gen consoles too.
Few details are known about the PS5 and Xbox Series X version of GTA 5 so far, but many players assumed it would be a port. However, new details show that the next-gen GTA 5 could be quite different from the one we all know.
Unfortunately, players may have to wait until next year to play it though. The new GTA 5 PS5 trailer suggests that it could be delayed until next year or beyond.
Next-Gen Grand Theft Auto 5 Remaster
The boss of Rockstar's parent company Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick, recently spoke about how Rockstar deals with remastering their games. This information, transcribed by VGC, shed some light on GTA 5.
Zelnick said: "We don’t just port titles over. We actually take the time to do the very best job we can - making the title different for the new release, for the new technology that we’re launching it on."
This strategy is especially encouraging considering that a leak has revealed that some more huge Rockstar remasters could be on the way.
GTA 5 Graphics Upgrades on PS5 and Xbox Series X
Zelnick also revealed some more details on what kind of changes Grand Theft Auto fans can expect for the next-generation remaster.
But first, make sure you catch up with everything we know so far about GTA 5 on PS5.
Zelnick said: "We improve the technology, we upgrade the visuals, and we make performance enhancements."
This hints at a number of things. Firstly, this could mean that GTA 5 finally gets ray tracing. This will make lighting and reflections way more realistic.
This could also mean higher quality textures, a higher frame rate, and, potentially, even more NPCs on screen at once. Los Santos will surely feel more alive than ever with the GTA 5 remaster on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Meanwhile, there are a whole load of fresh GTA 6 rumors around. A leaker has revealed Some huge new GTA 6 gameplay details. The same leaker also provided an update giving details about the GTA 6 protagonist and map.
