The next-gen version also gets a PC rating

from Benjamin Grundken
Although Rockstar has yet to officially announce a PC version, the next-gen version of GTA 5 has also received a PC age rating. Until now, it was only released on Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been released multiple times and it looks like the PC version might get updated once again as well. More recently, Rockstar launched a next-gen version for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Exactly this version or another improved version could soon arrive on the PC, if it is an age rating of the improved version.

GTA 5: First Playstation 5 and Xbox Series, then the PC?

As “@GTASeries” discovered, the ESRB, the Entertainment Software Rating Board, has rated GTA 5 namely not only re-evaluated for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, but also for PC. As a result, technical and content updates that Rockstar has made to current-gen consoles should also be available on the technically open platform.

However, this has not been officially confirmed. So not only the specific release date of the next-gen version of GTA 5 for PC remains unclear, but also the specific details. It is conceivable, for example, that the PC version will have PC-exclusive features such as DLSS, textures that have been dug up again or improved ray tracing. A release can appear as a free or paid update or even as a separate second PC release. At the moment, however, we can only speculate on this.

Meanwhile, while there are still promising leaks, GTA 6 could still be a few years away. A next-gen version of GTA 5 for PC as well as other content updates are to be expected in the background. GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 may still make too much money for Americans to be worth bringing any successors to market.
