Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5 has enjoyed tremendous success on PS3 and Xbox 360, and now it seems that GTA 5 may release on the PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report by GameFAQs from Dec. 25, Amazon customer service has spoken about Grand Theft Auto V releasing for other platforms in 2014 and provided the potential timing of such an announcement occurring.
Earlier this month, Amazon customer service representatives shared that GTA 5 for PC will release in March 2014, but no official announcement has been made by Rockstar.
According to the Amazon representatives via TheSixthAxis, GTA 5 for PS4 and Xbox One could possibly be announced in Jan. of 2014. Find the full statement from Amazon below:
“I am sorry but for PS4 and Xbox One there is no update yet, please check back by first week of January. We might have the update by then please.”
Previously, Amazon foretold that the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V would be announced on Dec. 24, but no such event occurred. Despite the inaccuracy of the PC announcement prediction, Amazon is a common ground for leaks when it comes to new video game announcements and early release dates.
Whether or not Grand Theft Auto 5 finds its way to next-gen consoles or PC in 2014 remains to be seen, but many industry analysts have expressed in recent months their expectations such a release will happen. Earlier this year, Colin Sebastian, an analyst for Robert V. Baird & Co, stated that releasing GTA 5 on PS4 and Xbox One would “help extend the value of the franchise.”
