Rockstar Games and its parent company Take-Two Interactive are confident that next-generation hardware will ensure successful switching.
And that can only mean good news for a future project to be unveiled on the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, with many expecting GTA 6. to be among them.
Not only will this make it possible to offer the most complex and addictive Grand Theft Auto game ever, but it will also provide new features for GTA Online.
Multiplayer mode remains very popular with the PS4, Xbox One and PC, but hits a bit on the wall when it comes to new content.
Rockstar Games has done a great job of pushing a diverse amount, even if some of the companies you can buy remain pretty similar.
But there are obvious limitations that hold GTA Online and what it can do, originally designed for Xbox 360 and PS3 systems.
So the next game of Grand Theft Auto could be a massive leap forward and potentially one of the most
Without knowing the scope of the project, it's hard to say for sure if this will turn out to be accurate.
But Take-Two's interactive president Strauss Zelnik clearly sees future AAA games getting bigger and better.
Speaking at the recent Goldman Sachs entertainment event, Zelnick addressed the topic of indie games and how their popularity is affecting the market.
These more modest projects can bring enormous rewards, but ultimately they cannot take on the biggest developers. in the industry.
"I don't think this puts pressure on the world's Grand Theft Autos, which require a lot of people and a lot of significant financial investment to make for a long time," said Zelnick, via Tweak Town.
"And there is no evidence that this is so. In fact, the opposite is: I think it's getting harder, harder and more expensive to really make top-level titles.
"There is no direct competitive business between a modestly independent budget title and a major frontline title from a major publisher. "
And Zelnick also revealed more about how new ones from Sony and Microsoft can change things.
Far from being negative and costing more for the use of new technologies, Zelnick through the Games Industry believes the next generation will prove to be very positive for the creative side.
"We really don't expect changes in material costs with the generation," adds Zelnick.
"Every time we have new technology that allows us to do more, developers want to do more and that may cost a little more, but our current expectations are not that you will see a jump in costs.
"The days of the sine curve are increasing and decreasing in the online entertainment business around the hardware cycles … these are long gone.
" The transition from the last to the present generation was not taxing for us, neither This is really the first time the industry has gone through one of these transitions without going bankrupt.
"The world has changed. When it comes to launching the console, the PC format can be 40% or 50% of that revenue now. Ten years ago, that number was 1
"It is clear that the world is changing. Previously, the closed system really became an open system. This means that hardware will look more like hardware and less like hardware taxation. software, which is great news for us.
"I think it creates a real opportunity and we don't see that it has a negative effect on our business or our catalog."
These quotes are not made in direct reference to the next Grand Theft Auto game, but they clearly show that Rockstar Games will not be afraid to take on the challenge of developing for the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
