State Of Play

Sony are set to present a new State of Play on February 25th, where they will release trailers and new information for 10 games for both PlayStation 4 and 5.

We can expect to see upcoming games such as God of War: Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, and Grand Theft Auto V.

GTA V Next-Gen

During a recent State of Play in June 2020, it was revealed that GTA V would be coming to PlayStation 5, offering improved visuals and frame rate.

Release Date

Rockstar has confirmed that the next-gen version of GTA V will be released during the second half of 2021.

It is likely that we will get a release date during the upcoming State of Play event.


Check out the announcement trailer for the next-gen GTA V port here.




It has been confirmed that the next-gen GTA V port will be releasing on both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, with the enhancements also coming to the PC version of the game.

It has been rumoured that the game will be a timed exclusive on PS5, but nothing has been confirmed and we won't know until a release date is given.


Rockstar described the enhancements that are being made tothe game saying,

"The new generation versions of GTA 5 will feature a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever."

GTA V should finally see the jump to 60fps on the next-gen hardware, after previously only being playable on 30fps on last-gen consoles.


This should be the first step to putting the game closer to its PC counterpart.

There are also rumours that the engine will be upgrade and will instead run on Rockstar's RAGE engine, the same engine used in Red Dead Redemption 2.

This should allow for smoother gameplay and improved visuals and we can also expect GTA 6 to be running on the RAGE engine, or even an improved version of the engine, whenever the game is finally announced.

But for now, we have the next-gen version of GTA V to look forward to, as well as the potential remasters of the PS2 trilogy.
