And for the massive and vibrant community of Grand Theft Auto Online players worldwide, the journey through the ever-evolving, shared world of GTA Online will continue on to the new generation with more new updates including additional GTA Online content exclusive to the new consoles and PC. There will also be a new standalone version of GTA Online coming in the second half of 2021, which will be available for free exclusively for PlayStation 5 players during the first three months.
With the next-gen release confirmation, Grand Theft Auto V will be the only game that is available on three different console generations, as it has been originally released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The jump from the previous to the current generation brought a lot of improvements and new features, like first-person view mode, so it will be interesting to see how Rockstar Games will further improve the experience on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
