There is good news for GTA 5 fans who would rather play the game on new hardware.
A recent report by GameRanx suggests that Take-Two is still mulling over whether the publisher should release the game on next-gen consoles or not.
It is expected to give a final verdict during the investor call on May 16, and as things stand, they might decide in favor of releasing the game on next-gen consoles.
Take-Two investor calls have historically accounted for most of the new key announcements by the publisher, and we could very well get an announcement regarding GTA 5 on next-gen consoles and PC next month considering Take-Two/Rockstar Games has neither confirmed nor denied it.
GTA 5 is arguably the most anticipated game this year, and analysts believe it will act as a catalyst to revive the video game software sales downward trend that is expected to continue until late August, mid September.
With PS4 and Next Xbox on the horizon, it doesn’t make sense for a blockbuster to ignore both consoles especially when it could easily sell more copies by reaching out to a broader audience. Most of the fans will go for the exclusives, but that could change if a game of GTA 5 stature is confirmed for these consoles.
GTA 5 is set to release on 17th September on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. If the next-gen version of the game is confirmed during the investor call, it would most definitely be during the Christmas period or early 2014 after the launch of the new consoles.
That brings us to an important question – Would you rather play the game on Xbox 360/Playstation 3 or wait it out to play it on next-gen consoles?
