GTA 5 Release Date For PS5 And Xbox Series X|S Is March 15th — Improvements Detailed

Rock­star Games has announced more details on Grand Theft Auto V’s PS5 and Xbox Series X|S ver­sions. First off, Rock­star con­firmed that GTA V will debut on the new plat­forms on March 15th. The game was sup­posed to launch in Novem­ber of 2021, before being delayed to the new year.

This will be the third con­sole gen­er­a­tion GTA V has been released on, after its orig­i­nal launch on the PS3/Xbox 360. Obvi­ous­ly, it moved to the PS4 and Xbox One lat­er, and has been on PC since release as well.


GTA V for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will have new graph­ics modes that sup­port res­o­lu­tions up to 4K and frame rates up to 60FPS. Play­ers can also expect improve­ments to tex­ture qual­i­ty and draw dis­tances, along with HDR options and ray-tracing.

Addi­tion­al­ly, the PS5 and Series X|S edi­tions will have faster load times, 3D audio, and “advanced hap­tic feed­back.” Videos and screen­shots of GTA V on the new plat­forms have not been released.

Progress Carries Forward

PS4 and Xbox One users can trans­fer their GTA V sto­ry mode progress and their GTA Online char­ac­ters and relat­ed pro­gres­sion to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S through a “one-time migration.”

GTA Online

As pre­vi­ous­ly announced, a stand­alone ver­sion of GTA Online is head­ing to the PS5 and Xbox Series X on March 15th. PS5 play­ers can down­load it for free dur­ing the first three months of its release.

Sim­i­lar­ly to GTA V, GTA Online is being upgrad­ed on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Play­ers will be able to skip the exist­ing GTA V sto­ry mode pro­logue that was pre­vi­ous­ly need­ed to be com­plet­ed before get­ting start­ed. Instead, a new­ly designed GTA Online tuto­r­i­al will be put in place. Addi­tion­al­ly, Rock­star will be adding a Career Builder menu, allow­ing new­com­ers to choose  Bik­er, Exec­u­tive, Night­club Own­er, or Gun­run­ner from the begin­ning. Play­ers will also get a “siz­able” gift of GTA$ when they start the game up. Return­ing play­ers, mean­while, will have the option to restart to make use of the new Career Builder option.

As a plus, GTA Online for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S include a new auto shop, Hao’s Spe­cial Works, which is locat­ed with­in the LS Car Meet. From there, play­ers can upgrade their vehi­cles (5 new ones and 5 old ones) to boost them to “elite” per­for­mance, thanks to the pow­er of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

As for GTA 6, or what­ev­er the name will be, Rock­star has offi­cial­ly con­firmed it is in development.
