There was also a minor community update on the next generation of Grand Theft Auto V/Online, which was accompanied by the bombshell announcement of Rockstar confirming development on the next GTA game.

The next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V, dubbed the 'Expanded and Enhanced' edition, will be released on March 15, 2022, according to Rockstar. Grand Theft Auto Online will then be released as a separate game, as previously announced.

In addition, for the first three months, players on next-gen consoles will be able to play GTA Online for free. A smaller update is also coming to Online, allowing users to play The Contract-Short Trips from the Jobs menu without first completing The Contract's main tasks.

Rockstar Games Reveals GTA V/Next-Gen Online's Features

Although it isn't a comprehensive look, Rockstar Games has revealed some preliminary details about the next-gen features in Grand Theft Auto 5 and Online. The Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 versions of the game will include:

  • Graphics modes with up to 4K resolution
  • Up to 60 frames per second
  • Texture upgrades
  • Draw Distance upgrades
  • HDR options
  • Ray Tracing
  • Faster Loading Times
  • 3D Audio
  • Advanced Haptic Feedback for Dualsense controllers on the PS5

The game will be out in about a month, and we should have seen at least a gameplay trailer by now. However, Rockstar is keeping its cards close to their chests on this one, but we can expect something major before the game's release.

Players on the PS4 and Xbox One will be able to transfer their GTAV Story Mode and Online characters and progress to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S if they choose to continue their journey on the future systems.

If gamers are still undecided about GTA V: Expanded and Enhanced when it launches, a free trial of Grand Theft Auto Online may provide a suitable benchmark for making a decision.
