After a long wait, we have finally received news on the Grand Theft Auto V Next Gen update, alongside a nod at the next Grand Theft Auto game. Here's what we know so far.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Next Gen Update

The Grand Theft Auto 5 Next Gen version has finally received a release date of March 15, just over a month from now. Players can transfer all progress from the previous version of the game without any issues.

Here's what was said about the game on Rockstar News Wire:

"Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S features new graphics modes with up to 4K resolution, up to 60 frames per second, texture and draw distance upgrades, HDR options and ray-tracing, as well as offering the technical advancements of the latest console generation with faster loading times, immersive 3D audio, platform-specific features like advanced haptic feedback, and much more."

Initial Delay

GTA V Expanded & Enhanced was initially due to release last November before being delayed to a vague 'March' release date.

March 15 has now been confirmed, so expect it to be final.

GTA 6 Officially Revealed

In the same statement, Rockstar said that GTA 6 is real and in development:

"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."

Hopefully we'll hear more about it soon.
