Is GTA 5 Current-Gen Or Next Gen? Rockstar North Wants Devs For Both

Will GTA 5 appear on both current and next-gen consoles? It could well be if recent job postings are to be believed... (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

it will be released on current hardware.really doubt R* would release the same game on next gen hardware.

Well if new hardware is announced I don't see why it can't be on both. Many games were on both PS2/PS3 e.g. FIFA and others. All they need to do is scale the engine accordingly. PC games look a lot better than there console counterparts. How do you think this is achieved?

I agree. If Rockstar know something we don't (and let's face it, MS/Sony are going to want them on board) then they'll certainly want to cover all bases. I know I would if I was in charge :D

I agree. It could be release on next-gen as well, but that won't exclude the current-gen.

If not, GTA V will be the #1 reason for people backward-compatibilty (or some sort of digital release to replace it)

The GTA V debut Trailer showed too much for it not to be able to release on current-gen.

PS3, Xbox 360 - maybe later or simultaneously, PC too. Can't wait.

Doesn't seem to suspicious to me. I'd love for GTA 5 to be my first next-gen experience, and with those graphics already seen in that trailer, next-gen doesn't seem implausible.

Next-gen on the Wii U? Sure. Rockstar is on board with this next-gen Nintendo system. PS4 might be a different story but they could port it over there as well if they release it in a GTA collection.

If Sony wasn't lying in saying that the PS4 will not show up at E3, I just couldn't see it coming out before the holiday season in 2013 at the earliest. I damn sure hope that GTAV will be out within the next year or so, which tells me that it would need to be on the PS3.

That doesn't mean that they wouldn't release a version on the PS4 whenever that comes out, but if it's more than a year after GTAV originally drops I would personally doubt it.

If it's a current gen game I'm really looking forward to it, if it's next gen I'm disappointed as hell. It looks slightly better than GTA4 which isn't nearly a good enough leap in visuals, regardless of the fact that it'd be a launch title and regardless of the size of it.

Current Gen = PS3 & 360
Next Gen = PC
GraveLord  +   1482d ago
Nope. PC has no generations so its impossible for it to be "next-gen". If someone was hiring for a game project they would say PC. Next-gen refers to video game consoles.

Would they make it for PS3/360 if next gen was near? I'd say not. Wouldn't suprise me if Agent was next gen (or canned)

Based on the trailer, it looked amazing, but not good enough to be "next gen".

Wow... way to act like the current gen of consoles is already outdated, article...
R_A_LEE20  +   1482d ago
I think the term next gen can only mean development for the Wii U as it's the only next gen console announced atm plus its been rumoured that GTA V is a Wii U launch title since before E3 2011. Rockstar know Wii U's there and it's very unlike them to release the same game across two generations of the same branded console. So I doubt it will be released on both the 360 & the 720 or the PS3 & PS4.
