One of the announcements that surprised the audience at the PS5 presentation event the most was the arrival of GTA 5 to the next-gen Sony console. Although the game was expected to make the transition, no one thought it would be given so much importance by Rockstar (at the expense of a potential sequel).

However, it is already confirmed that GTA 5 will come to next-generation consoles and it will not do so without major improvements. It seems that some of the improvements that it will add, at least for the Sony console version, have already been discovered. Let's take a look at what the "new" GTA 5 will bring.

Some of the improvements and news of GTA V on the PS5 have already been discovered via exploring the PlayStation store page, and there will be some very interesting upgrades for the next-gen edition.

As pointed out by the store page of GTA 5 for the PS5 on the Playstation website, Rockstar's open-world title will add technical improvements and new content. What GTA 5 for the next-gen will have has been unraveled as following:

  • New weapons, vehicles and activities
  • Additional wildlife
  • Denser traffic
  • New foliage system
  • Enhanced damage and weather effects, and much more

The particular detail just above the list says the following: "a range of technical upgrades and enhancements for new and returning players. In addition to increased draw distances and higher resolution", in addition to "a range of additions and improvements" listed above. At the moment, no more information about this update is known.

It is still anecdotal and funny that the PS2, for example, had three major installments of the GTA series and now, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be able to be played on three PlayStation consoles.

Not long ago, many of us have been wondering how the arrival of GTA 5 on the PS5 will affect the future release of GTA 6. From the looks of it, it seems that Rockstar is still supporting this game that has become the goose that lays golden eggs for the company, meaning current development for GTA 6 is even less likely than previously thought.
