Will the Next Grand Theft Auto Be on the Switch?

With news of Rockstar's L.A. Noire releasing on Nintendo's newest platform in November, could the publisher be willing to make the next Grand Theft Auto game on the system too?

Highly doubt it

I don't want the next GTA being held back for anything

-Foxtrot377d ago

LOL

You're telling me the Switch wouldn't hold back GTAVI?

Yeah...sure.

RDR2 will come out in 2018, 5 years after GTA V first released...

by the time GTA VI comes out it will be 2022/2023 using the latest technology of that era, I don't think base PS4/XB1 would be able to handle that let alone the inferior Switch.

StraightedgeSES377d ago (Edited 377d ago )

So that means it shouldn't come out for the base PS4 and Xbox one since those versions will hold back the PS4 pro, Xbox one X, and PC version. Anyway i don't believe it will come to the Switch since the Switch is not powerful enough.

-Foxtrot377d ago (Edited 377d ago )

Mid gen consoles are completely different to the Switch. You wouldn't make GTAVI an exclusive to those consoles as there would be hell on.

Don't twist this. You've got more of a chance to get GTA4 or Red Dead Redemption then GTAVI...hell even a re release of Bully or something.

GTAVI will also be including the next version of GTA Online....do you honestly think the Switch can handle GTA Online when they can't even do a proper online now?

Good grief.

StraightedgeSES377d ago (Edited 377d ago )

I acknowledge that it wasn't powerful enough to run GTA 6. Your argument was that it would have held the other versions back when it wouldn't. If GTA 6 some how came to the Switch and was worse on Switch how would that effect or hold back the other versions that come out on other platforms?

GTA is a console game that's ported to pc, so that is irrelevant. Plus, technically yes consoles do hold back pc. When pc had specs higher than ps4 years before it couldn't present alot of games a ps4 levels graphics (higher res tho) but because most games were ports to pc.

Teflon02377d ago

Pc holds itself back too. Minimum specs is what holds it back. Needing to run at a under leveled strength

Liqu1d377d ago

They would likely have to scale back the scope of the game to accomodate the Switch. Downgrades can only do so much.

bluefox755376d ago (Edited 376d ago )

@Teflon Consoles are not holding PC back. When you consider that current consoles are about as powerful as the average PC on Steam, you can reasonably conclude that the only thing holding back games is consumer thriftiness. If consoles were to disappear tomorrow, all current console owners wouldn't go out and buy a $1500 gaming PC, they'd likely buy a PC equivalent to what their console was. Console price points aren't arbitrary. They strike a balance between performance and cost.

I mean it's held back when it's released on ps4/Xbox when it gets ported to PC.In fact when gta 5 was released on 360/ps3 it was tottaly held back.

I would imagine the next gta and this upcoming read dead are cutting graphical and cpu intensive features out of the game because ps4/Xbox can't handle them

Widen your perspective

-Foxtrot377d ago

Keep deluding yourself that the Switch can handle it. These comments are hilarious.

Just go back and play on GTAV for the Switch....oh....wait

yomfweeee377d ago

Consoles are better than 95% of PCs owned by Steam users. Consoles aren't holding PCs back.

StraightedgeSES377d ago

Except none of us are deluding ourselves as we know GTA 6 is not coming to the Switch. You Sony clowns are just letting your fears of a gta game selling more on a console that's not named PlayStation get to you. Cause let's if it did come to the Switch it would sell like hot cakes

remixx116376d ago (Edited 376d ago )

@straight

Lol wow dude really, some of ya fanboy slipped out a bit there.

The demographic that the switch is targeted at is not the same as the one GTA is trying to appeal to. Not only that but logically speaking do you honestly think 60 million+ consoles wouldn't sell more copies of a game like GTA than a competitor with say what a couple mil.

You sound like the clown.

bloop376d ago

"In fact when gta 5 was released on 360/ps3 it was tottaly held back."

What are you smoking Erik?? GTAV was a technical marvel running on PS3/360. R* pulled off an incredible job with those consoles. If they held back anything it surely didn't show as the game looked freaking amazing and ran absolutely perfect. It's a 4 year old game now and it's still one of the best looking open worlds, heavily populated, with 100's of unique missions/random events/activities and ran buttery smooth.

If anyone needs to widen their perspective it's you.

Lmao no.

They would dumb it down for the switch yes, but it wouldn't hold shit back.

The pro and x versions are going to look incredible regardless of what else it is on.

Big_Game_Hunters377d ago

Said from the guy who doesn't know shit about game development.

-Foxtrot377d ago

Says the guy who did a years games development at Uni...

Well would you look at that...guess you didn't know that did you.

Do you even read?

Big_Game_Hunters376d ago (Edited 376d ago )

Yet you are still wrong.

Imalwaysright376d ago

Then it should only come to PC which it's actually not a bad idea!

SUCKxITxEZ376d ago

Its not like they would force the same dude to make twice as many art assets, they would pay someone else to make lower poly/res versions, or they could just use the LOD models. The online mode would suffer from Switch's horrible online system, but i don't see why they couldn't make crappy single player only cash grab game, theres millions of fools with Switches already.

jstark376d ago (Edited 376d ago )

the consoles are going to hold this game back anyway

Segata376d ago

If R* used UE4 it wouldn't since they could use the needed settings each system.

I doubt it. Switch is the new handheld and that's it. It's an excellent handheld, best ever in fact.

What's crazy is we haven't even had a new GTA yet this gen.

SkippyPaccino377d ago

I have a feeling we won't get a new GTA this gen, unless it releases 2 months before the PS5.

Liqu1d377d ago

Probably will, then they can get people to double dip with the PS5 port.

prb313377d ago

its a handheld and tv console get it strait

The_Sage377d ago

Nintendo's marketing aside, it's essentially a handheld that you can play on your TV, just like you can with the Vita.

EddieNX 377d ago

Sorry but all the hardware is in the handheld. The dock is a hollow piece of plastic that connects it to TV. Now of the dock was full of tech I'd agree with you. You can play Switch 100% of the time on handheld mode, the dock is optional, the tablet is essential.

slavish0377d ago

If they make a cell phone or tablet version..
Then ..maybe 😂

mcstorm376d ago

Haha tbh the switch is a powerful console in its own right but compared to the current gen home consoles it not.
I also think if and it's a big if the switch sells very well and the mature gores come to it and sell well we could see a switch version of gta but I really don't think we will. For me I'm not fussed I'm not a gta fan but I know millions are.
