Grand Theft Auto V was released in 2013 already and, even today, its activity does not decline. Rockstar intends to use his baby to the end: by bringing it to PS5 and Xbox Series (by making a game that has spanned three generations all the same) and by focusing all its efforts on its GTA Online multiplayer (to the detriment of that of Red Dead Redemption II, which also makes a bad-buzz right now).

It’s been a long time since we heard of a release of the game around 2024, although many years have been mentioned in the past. Rockstar, for its part, plays the total language of wood.
