Is Grand Theft Auto V Carjacking PS4? Rockstar Is Plotting a Next-Gen Release

Mystery title to honk its horn before April 2015
Grand Theft Auto V may make its debut on the PlayStation 4 imminently after all, as Take-Two has revealed that subsidiary Rockstar Games will release a “next-gen” title before the end of March 2015. While the firm failed to indicate which of its critically acclaimed franchises this outing will belong to, it did indicate that it expects the Red Dead Redemption maker to account for 45 per cent of its total revenue for the coming year, suggesting that it will be a major game.
Rumours regarding a port of last year's open world epic for Sony’s best selling super machine have been rife for some time, with the company even indicating that it will make it if enough consumers request it. Judging by our own various social network feeds, the market is definitely there – even though the core package has now moved a whopping 33 million units globally on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There’s no reason why it couldn’t comfortably cross the 50 million mark with an updated re-release.
Of course, there are other possibilities. A sequel to the studio’s abovementioned Western sandbox is also supposedly in production, while the developer has emphasised its fondness for the Bully brand on multiple occasions. Alas, Take-Two gaffer Strauss Zelnick refused to be drawn on specifics, simply stating that he’s “very excited about what [Rockstar Games] has in store” for the PS4. You and us both, buddy – well, as long as it doesn't involve bashing buttons to run.
