A wierd new state of affairs has come about that has some followers anxious concerning the prospect of Grand Theft Auto V releasing later this 12 months on PlayStation 5. Whereas it may simply be an oversight, the looks of the sport in a brand new trailer didn’t embody a launch window for GTA 5 on PS5, which has triggered some to suppose that the next-gen iteration of the ever-popular recreation may need been delayed at Rockstar Video games.
This complete matter comes about because of a brand new PS5 advert that just lately appeared over on IGN’s YouTube channel. The video is sort of much like others that PlayStation has launched over the previous few months and options a number of temporary seems to be at upcoming video games like Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Aside, and Grand Theft Auto V. Nevertheless, in comparison with a few of the different titles talked about on this trailer, GTA 5 doesn’t have a launch window connected to it. By comparability, Ratchet’s launch date is listed on the backside of the display screen within the trailer whereas Horizon Forbidden West is alleged to be deliberate for the second half of 2021. Conversely, Grand Theft Auto V is just mentioned to be “in improvement for PS5.”
Clearly, simply because GTA 5 doesn’t include an connected launch window within the high-quality print doesn’t mechanically imply that the sport is delayed. Nevertheless, it’s a bit weird to see the title not have a 2021 launch window connected to it in any capability. Rockstar itself, when it revealed the sport for PS5 final 12 months, made clear that it was deliberate to reach this 12 months.
It’s additionally price noting that Gran Turismo 7 doesn’t function a launch window or date on this trailer both, however there’s doubtless a great purpose for that. This previous week, PlayStation truly introduced that the highly-anticipated racing recreation had been delayed into 2022. As such, contemplating when this trailer was doubtless put collectively, it makes a bit extra sense for it to not listing any such window.
Once more, it’s price stressing that there’s most likely nothing to see right here and when you’re wanting ahead to Grand Theft Auto V on PS5, there’s a great likelihood that it’ll nonetheless launch this 12 months as supposed. But when the sport is delayed, maybe that is our first indication of it slipping again only a bit.
So what do you suppose? Do you imagine that there’s an opportunity GTA 5 on PS5 might be pushed into subsequent 12 months? Let me know what you suppose both down within the feedback or over on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
