Rockstar Responds to GTA 5 for PS4 and Xbox One Requests…Sort Of

Rockstar Responds to GTA 5 for PS4 and Xbox One Requests…Sort OfRockstar has broken its silence with regard to the burning question as to whether GTA 5 for PS4 and Xbox One will ever become a reality. That’s the good news – the bad being the rather vague and head-scratching statement they were actually willing to offer.

Unsurprisingly, Rockstar has been bombarded with questions via its official Rockstar Support Twitter page with regard to the potential for next-generation console ports of Grand Theft Auto 5. Once fan was lucky enough to be graced with a response, though not one that clarifies a great deal.

“Unfortunately, we have not released any information about that,” Rockstar replied.

So really there are two ways of looking at this – the first being something of a brick wall and the continuation of hear-tearing frustration. However, the fact that the PS4 and Xbox One console port of GTA 5 hasn’t been completely denied outright at least leaves a degree of hope that it could indeed happen this year.

Rockstar previously stated that it never had the intention to work on two different versions of GTA 5 at the same time, calling the idea ‘depressing’ and effectively closing the lid on the matter. From a slightly more optimistic standpoint though, there’s still every chance that the next-generation version of GTA 5 could be in the pipeline once the dust has settled following the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

Sales remain exceptionally strong and there are still plenty of GTA Online bugs to be worked out – not to mention the inevitable arrival of the PC version of the game.

From a strictly business perspective, it would be quite bizarre for any firm not to release the most successful game in the history of the industry on every single platform available, but stranger things have happened.
