Grand Theft Auto: How much will GTA 5 cost on PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X?

A hike in the price of software is something gamers have come to expect each time a new wave of consoles is released.

The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are no exception, with a £70 price tag typically attached to the latest games.

Most have accepted the increase on the basis that next-gen titles have higher development and production costs. Games crafted from scratch are generally considered to be worth the price hike. However, when a game is more than eight years old, that leap might become a little bit more difficult to justify.

Originally released back in 2013, a remastered version of Grand Theft Auto 5 is due to be released by Rockstar Games later this year for both next-gen consoles.

In news that may come as a surprise to some fans, though, the reboot is expected to hit the shelves at the same £70 price point as other new titles, per tweaktown.com.

The fact that GTA 5 was first brought to players on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 shows just how long it has been since it was released. Two generations of consoles have passed since then!

With that said, the game still has a loyal following online, with thousands of players still enjoying its absorbing campaign and hugely enjoyable online modes. There is definitely still a big appetite for exploring the city of Los Santos and its surrounding areas.

The decision of the developers to move in the direction of a reboot has been influenced by delays to GTA 6 – with the latest estimates suggesting that the title will not hit consoles until at least 2023.

The forthcoming version of GTA 5 will not just be a straight port of the original, though. Rockstar has previously promised fans an “expanded and enhanced” version of the game, designed to make full use of next-gen platforms.

Be that as it may, we are still talking about a game that is nearly a decade old. Does a fresh coat of next-gen paint make the new GTA 5 worthy of its £70 retail price? Everyone will have their own answer to that question.

In what year did Sony release the PlayStation 2?




However, given how popular the game has been over the years, it would come as a shock if the latest GTA title does not sell well when it is released this November.
