GTA 5 release date: PS, PS4 and Xbox One
GTA V launched in September last year but only came out for PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers. If you don’t own one of those consoles then you probably want to know when it will be launched on other platforms – namely PC, PS4 and Xbox One. See also: PS4 vs Xbox One review: Next-gen games console comparison.
As we expected, E3 2014 has brought some good news on the subject and the firm has revealed that GTA 5 will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this autumn. We'll give you a specific date as soon as it's announced.
Update: Retailer GameSeek has updated its GTA 5 listings stating that the game will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 7 November.
Rockstar said: "Grand Theft Auto V will take full advantage of the power of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail. Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California"
