New Grand Theft Auto Title in the Works

It's about time.
It's about time. Rockstar Games

Many people have long been asking when the new Grand Theft Auto game is coming out. Today, we got good and bad news, depending on how you look at it. The good news is that Rockstar Games confirmed that it is working on the next entry in the franchise.

The bad news is we don't know what stage they are in the development process and when the release date is. For those who can remember, Grand Theft Auto IV was released seven years after Grand Theft Auto III. Grand Theft Auto V came out five years after GTA IV. If that's the pattern, it will be a long wait for the next game. In the post, Rockstar announced the update but did not reveal what the title is. Of course, a lot of fans are hoping it's going to be GTA VI.

We're going with a caveat on this one since nobody wants a repeat of BlizzCon 2018. Remember that one? People were anticipating that the announcement was a new Diablo title but turned out to be Diablo Immortal.

Improving GTA Online

What else did Rockstar announce? GTA Online players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S can expect to see a bunch of improvements that they’re sure will love. For example, there's the ability to skip the Story Mode prolog of GTA V before entering Online. Another one is the new GTA Online Tutorial. New players should be happy to know that they can now enter the Career Builder. With this, they can now access one of these four businesses: Biker, Executive, Nightclub Owner, or Gunrunner. There are also some GTA$ available to help new players start their new enterprise and let them get a property, high-end vehicle, and firepower.

The next-gen console version of GTA Online is releasing March 15. Several new features are available like the new graphics modes with up to 4K resolution, up to 60 frames per second, texture and draw distance upgrades, HDR options, and ray-tracing. There are also technical advancements such as faster loading times, immersive 3D audio, and platform-specific features like advanced haptic feedback.
