The competition going up against the rumored release date of "Grand Theft Auto 5" on PS4, Xbox One and PC has been analyzed. According to a report from The Fuse Joplin on July 31, the open-world action-adventure title is being listed with a Nov. 7 release by a retailer. The date puts it in a busy period filled with other blockbuster releases.

Around a week earlier, Ubisoft is going to launch "Assassin's Creed Unity." A four-player cooperative campaign mode is being added to the popular series for the first time. It is also the first game to be developed specifically for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One as Ubisoft won't be releasing a PS3 and Xbox 360 version.

The releases of "GTA 5" on PS4, Xbox One and PC also have to compete with "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare." The latest installment from the first-person shooting franchise is being developed by Sledgehammer Games on the computer and next-generation platforms. Although the same game is also coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360, the current-generation console ports are being handled by another studio.

"GTA 5" has to compete with two high-profile releases that were built specifically for the PS4 and Xbox One. However, Rockstar North is adding some enhancements to the upcoming ports as well. The first trailer showed off better frame rate, resolution and textures when compared to the original versions. The development team also implemented improved lighting along with more animals, cars and foliage.

Although "GTA 5" has already sold 33 million units, a lot of players are waiting to play the video game for the first time on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. A few others would also like to upgrade to the new versions for a better experience. So it appears that the ports should end up being among the best-selling games of the holiday season despite the stiff competition.
