Alright, who mucked up Grand Theft Auto V's graphics? There'll be some nervous glances at Rockstar North today, as the developer has admitted that this week's "downgrade" story is actually due to a bug. Eagle eyed Reddit users were in uproar a few days ago when it emerged that the title's latest patch had stripped back several visual effects. But according to the developer, it's all just an oversight.

"We are aware of some graphical issues on the PlayStation 4 version of Grand Theft Auto V after the most recent Title Update, and we are investigating a fix now," a spokesperson said. A new patch did actually deploy overnight solving some of the vehicle deformation issues, but – and we're going to go Digital Foundry on your ass for a second – parallax mapping still remains a problem. We recommend heading to the Winchester and waiting for things to blow over.
