Update: A recently announced trailer confirms that Grand Theft Auto V is indeed launching for Xbox One and PC, as well as the PS4, this fall.
Almost nine months after its initial release, Grand Theft Auto V is finally making the jump to this most recent console generation.
During Sony’s E3 presentation this evening, the company’s Group CEO Andrew House confirmed the next-gen port, and slated the game for a seemingly timed exclusive launch on PlayStation 4 this coming fall.
Interestingly, Sony announced that players will be able to migrate their saves from not only PlayStation 3, but also from Xbox 360 — accommodating for the sizeable chunk of PlayStation 4’s install base who didn’t own a PS3, perhaps? Either way, this transfer will also encompass Grand Theft Auto V’s online component, GTA Online, meaning you can retain all those precious reputation points accumulated over the last nine months.
Ultimately, other than a vague holiday 2014 release window, not much is known about the price or release date for Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4. Although, the fact that Rockstar’s record-breaking title has been confirmed via a Sony press conference could hint that the remaster is hitting the company’s flagship console ahead of the Xbox One.
We’ll have more information regarding Grand Theft Auto V’s jump to new hardware as it appears.
