Developer Rockstar has said that its much-anticipated crime romp Grand Theft Auto V ‘feels’ like a next-generation title, despite the fact it hasn’t been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Phil Hooker, associate technical director for Rockstar North, told IGN that the open-world title “surpassed [Rockstar’s] own expectations,” with a number of major enhancements injected into the gameplay and visuals in comparison to its predecessor, 2008’s GTA IV.

"When we started we knew the scope of GTA 5 was huge and incredibly ambitious," commented Hooker. "Fortunately from completing GTA 4 we had a team that was already very familiar with the hardware.

"Every aspect of the game had to be better, richer in gameplay and more fluid and knowing we were launching on the same platforms meant we could focus on extracting the most out of those consoles and making the game as fantastic as possible."
