Contrary to rumours circulating last week, the Grand Theft Auto V remaster has not been delayed and will be arriving on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this year. Rockstar reiterated that it was on target for a 2014 release following leaked information suggesting it wouldn’t see the light of day until the new year. Responding to a fan on the support page, a Rockstar representative confirmed it was still on track although there was nothing to show just yet.
Little has been seen of GTA 5 for PC and current-gen since its existence was confirmed at E3 2014, alongside a trailer which showcased the impressive improvements coming to the port. Rockstar has been quiet on a release date since, sticking only to its original “Fall 2014" listing. We know the studio’s been busy though, with news emerging that all-new content is being recorded for GTA V’s radio stations exclusively for the remastered version.
It’s just a matter of months until we’re hoping to see GTA V arriving on PC and current-gen, but as it stands we don’t know a huge deal about what the upgraded experience entails other than increased draw distances, higher resolution textures, denser traffic, improved foliage, new varieties of wildlife, and enhanced resolutions. For a little reminder of just what’s coming our way though then have a little glance at the E3 2014 trailer below.
Recent word from British model Cara Delevingne, host of Los Santos’ Non Stop Pop radio station, confirms that all-new radio content is also being recorded. This only confirms new content for one radio station, but it’s probably safe to assume that the rest are getting the treatment too. As many a GTA fan knows, it's all about the radio, so it's great to hear we should be able to wrap our ears around a bit more of Rockstar's oftentimes hilarious FM stations.
As it stands then Grand Theft Auto V is still on target for a Fall 2014 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Leaks from video game retailers suggest we are probably looking at November for when we can finally get our hands on Rockstar’s latest, a full 14 months after the original’s release.
