Rockstar Games made quite the splash when the PS5 Reveal Event kicked off with a trailer for GTA V: Expanded and Enhanced Edition. One half of the community was quite excited at the prospect of enjoying their favourite open-world title on next-gen consoles with enhancements and “expansions”, the other half was although, equally disappointed at the lack of a new game from Rockstar.
Information has been rather sparse on what sort of enhancements and expansions Rockstar have in store for GTA V, other than its release date – November 11, 2021. Now, it seems like PlayStation Blog Germany might have just provided players with some valuable information that will help them make an informed purchase.
According to the blog, GTA V will run at 4K at 60 FPS on the PS5, and it stands to reason that its performance will be identical on the Xbox Series X/S.
GTA 5 will support 4k at 60 FPS on the PS5, confirmed by PlayStation Blog

This hasn’t officially been confirmed by Rockstar Games, and the post hasn’t been up on any other PlayStation Blog. However, it doesn’t seem that big a stretch to assume that GTA V would be able to hit 60 FPS quite easily at 4K on next-gen consoles.
It will be interesting to see if this kind of performance can be achieved with Grand Theft Auto Online – since the game has famously had choppy performance on last-gen consoles. Perhaps, much like games like Doom Eternal or Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, GTA V could offer 120 FPS support at lower resolutions.
On top of these enhancements, players have their fingers crossed on the “expanded” part of the game’s subtitle to deliver on its promise as well. The community has been hoping for a single-player expansion to GTA V ever since its launch in 2013 – and this seems like the perfect time for Rockstar to come through with one.
