As we expected, E3 2014 brought some good news on the subject and the firm revealed that GTA 5 will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this autumn.

Update 12/09: After being tipped for 7 November by a retailer, Rockstar has confirmed that GTA 5 will arrive on Xbox One and PS4 on 18 November. However, it's bad news for PC gamers who will have to wait until 27 January.

Rockstar said: "In addition to increased draw distances and higher resolution, players can expect a range of additions and improvements including new weapons, vehicles and activities, additional wildlife, denser traffic,a new foliage system, enhanced damage and weather effects, and much more."

There will also be 100 new songs on the radio stations and anyone who pre-order the game will get $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash to spend across Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.
