Dan Houser has revealed some details in regards to the future development plans for the PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report by Playstation Universe on Sept. 18, the writer responsible for “GTA 5” stated that the development team was briefed by both Sony and Microsoft in regards to the next-generation platforms.
However, Dan Houser stated that they aren’t currently working on a potential port of “GTA 5” to the PS4, mentioning that developing three versions of the same video game could end up being “phenomenally depressing.” Instead, his company is looking at the next-generation system in terms of future projects. You can take a look at several screenshots featuring the recently-launched “Grand Theft Auto” installment in the slideshow on the top left-hand side of this article and the comments from Dan Houser below (courtesy of Playstation Universe):
Of course we’re interested. But no, not in terms of GTA, because we’re always working on the current game. We look at the tech at a more practical level: what will be ready for which game that we’re working on further down the line. We don’t have another GTA in development, we don’t work on three of these games at a time. That would be phenomenally depressing.
“GTA 5” came out on the PS3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles earlier this week on Sept. 17. One of the players of the open-world action-adventure video game apparently found a string of codes that suggest the open-world action-adventure video game is also coming to the PC and PS4. Moreover, Amazon France temporary listed next-generation versions of the same product.
“GTA 5” was published by the aforesaid Rockstar Games, the parent company of the Rockstar North team that was responsible for the game’s development. You can pre-order the upcoming products from Amazon in the following links: PS4 and Xbox One
