"Grand Theft Auto 5" won't be the only open-world action-adventure game being released for the PS4 and Xbox One later this year. According to a report from Kotaku on Aug. 7, an retail listing from Amazon revealed that "Sleeping Dogs" will be coming out on the two next-generation systems on Oct. 14. The product page mentioned the additions of a 28-page art book along with all of the DLC that were released after the launch of the original game on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The listing did not mentioned anything in regards to any potential visual upgrades. However, previous ports to the PS4 and Xbox One usually increased the native resolution to 1080p while providing a smoother frame rate at the same time. As a result, the new versions should end up looking similar to the PC game.

"Sleeping Dogs" is considered to be one of the most popular open-world action-adventure video games. On the other hand, the new intellectual property still did not come close to matching the sales of "GTA 5," which broke a lot of records in the entertainment industry after launching in Sept. of last year for the PS3 and Xbox 360 console. The sequel was able to sell more than 33 million units so far on just the two current-generation systems.

"GTA 5" was confirmed at E3 2014 with Sony Computer Entertainment announcing the PS4 version first while Rockstar Games handled the announcements for the PC and Xbox One versions shortly after. The ports will be enhanced from a visual standpoint as the open-world action-adventure game is going to be rendered at a native 1080p resolution. All of the updates released for "GTA Online" so far would be included as well.

"GTA 5" only has a vague fall release date time frame announced so far. Rockstar Games should be providing a more targeted launch time frame in the near future.
