This is all part of the publisher’s previously-announced plans to bring Grand Theft Auto 5 to the PS5 and Xbox Series X in the second half of 2021, which will arrive on Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles with a wealth of enhancements.
Take-Two recently touched base on its price hike for PS5 and Xbox Series X games, saying the extraordinary quality of those titles justifies the extra $10.
