GTA V

10 replies 145 views Edited Jul 26, 2013

Does anyone know if GTA V Will be coming to PS4? I can't seem to get a direct answer if I google it. Also if it is coming to PS4 how soon will it be ported over? 

 

Just wondering if it would be preactical to wait for the PS4 launch instead of getting it on current gen.

Rockstar has stated that they currently have no plans to release GTA V on next gen consoles (or PC)

 

While that doesn't mean it won't EVER happen necessarily, it does mean that there'd be no way of getting it this year for next-gen/PC (if ever)

 

So if you're planning on getting the game, you're safest bet is to buy the current gen. Since odds are, it won't make the next gen jump.

I don't see why they didn't start developing it for the next-gen consoles.

Probably because development started like 2 years ago and no specs for the new consoles were known at that time so you can't really develop for an unknown.

Don't you think that the devs would have some knowledge of the specs directly from the source (Sony, M$. etc) prior to when they got released to the  general public.

Well sure, but who knows when they did that.

 

Apparently the game devs didn't get dev kits til 2012, so......yeah.

Because the PS3 & 360 has a combined user-base of over 155 million why would they ignore that for PS4 / XB1 which are new platforms??

 

Most PS3 & 360 owners aren't going to upgrade in the 1st year.

What I meant was develop the game concurrently for the next-gen and now-gen. Not just for the next gen.

That would cause huge delays, they would need to create or tweak their engine for PS4 / XB1.

 

Plus I doubt R* has the resourse to develop for 4 platforms at once, it just wouldn't be smart financially to stretch themselves thin. 

 

Lastly R* has never released a GTA at launch for console. 

 

Even SR4 opted to ignore next gen.
