GTA V Won’t Release for Next-Gen Consoles
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most anticipated games of this year and with the next-gen consoles on the horizon, consumers wonder when or if Rockstar plans to port the game over.
Speaking to MCV in a recent interview, CEO of Take-Two Interactive, Strauss Zelnick stated that the latest GTA installment would be sticking to current-gen and that they currently have no plans to release a separate version for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Zelnick also added that they expect sales to be enormous and that the absence of GTA V from the next-generation consoles won’t have any real impact on the sales of the game.
Previously it was widely speculated that Rockstar would be releasing an iteration for the next-gen consoles as well. Heck, we actually believed all the delay was because they were planning to release it on the next-gen consoles in the first place.
However, as things stand there is still a lot of life left in the PS3 and Xbox 360. Speaking of which, the PC version is still something Rockstar isn’t too fond of talking about.
Grand Theft Auto V will release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th. A PC version will mostly probably follow suit 6-8 months later.
