If you’re a big fan of the Grand Theft Auto series of games then you’re going to want to prick your ears up, because even thought the fifth installment in the franchise has been around for nine months, the game is still set for a big release on the next generation platforms alongside the PC. And it will be up for pre-order starting today.

Rockstar Games has indicated that its flagship Grand Theft Auto 5 title could be in line for its next-gen makeover before the end of the company’s fiscal year, which is March 2015. Although he didn’t explicitly mention an updated GTA 5 at any point during a keynote at a financial call, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two, revealed that his company is “excited about what [Rockstar] has in store for the new generation of systems this fiscal year,” which is a not-so-subtle hint that the record-busting title could hit the PS4 and Xbox One within the next ten months.

You may find this hard to believe, but GTA 5 is actually the 15th release in the GTA series. The critically acclaimed action-adventure masterpiece made its initial assault on the gaming world back in September 2013 with immediate availability on Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360. In the time that’s followed, both Sony and Microsoft have launched new consoles, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One effectively replacing the older hardware.

Grand Theft Auto is undoubtedly one of the biggest gaming franchises around, as proven by the buzz that any new release garners. Grand Theft Auto 5 Online is the latest addition to the franchise and the game is now all set for the yearly lovefest that is Valentine’s Day.

Grand Theft Auto 5 will undoubtedly go down as one of the biggest gaming titles of last year. Rockstar Games released the title amidst unprecedented levels of excitement, with content and sales figures managing to not disappoint either publisher or consumer. Thus far, it’s only been console owners who have been able to get in on the crime laden action which GTA 5 represents. However, that might change really soon, after online retailer Amazon inadvertently let the cat out of the bag, pretty much confirming recent speculation regarding an imminent GTA 5 for PC release.

GTA Online, after the initial blip at launch, seems to have gone down well with purchasers of Grand Theft Auto 5 on both sides of the PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 divide. Last week, we brought you the news that GTA 5 Online was going to be getting quite a significant update, and today, Rockstar Games has commenced the process of rolling it out. The highlight here is the new Capture mode, which, as Rockstar describes, is “a GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations,” and if you’ve been looking forward to playing some CTF on GTA, now you can!

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been immensely successful this year, breaking all kinds of Guinness world records related to sales in the process. Despite selling tens of millions of copies, the first few weeks were somewhat hindered by the lack of a fully functional GTA Online from the get-go, and considering that this was one of the main reasons why many went out and purchased the game in the first place, it was a relief to finally see Rockstar iron out the kinks and launch it. Since then, multiplayer has been a joy to behold, and a new update to the fold will be allowing users to create their own deathmatches, races, and generally enjoy heaps more customization with the GTA Online experience.

Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5 has been the biggest-selling console title of this year, breaking several early sales records since its release in September. Many millions of gamers had been waiting years on its arrival, and barring a few technical glitches with GTA Online and whatnot, most have deemed the latest in the popular free-for-all classic series to have been worth the lengthy delay. To supplement the title, iFruit for iOS (and rather belatedly), Android, have given those running either of the two main mobile OSes an even richer experience, and although Windows Phone, as ever, remains bereft of any official support, a new third-party app for Microsoft’s platform could serve as the perfect accompaniment to GTA 5.

Amid celebrating an unprecedented success in the gaming industry, it must have slipped the mind of the folks at Rockstar that its GTA 5 iFruit app for Android was still pending, and despite having released the iFruit app for iOS users in the middle of last month, it’s taken a full six weeks for the Android version to manifest. With the launch having passed and GTA Online now well and truly establishing itself, the release of GTA iFruit seems a bit of a futile gesture, but nonetheless, it’s now available over at the Google Play Store.

It’s safe to say that the Grand Theft Auto franchise is one of the most loved in the gaming industry. The game that kicked it all off, simply titled Grand Theft Auto, was originally released with just two dimensions back in 1997. Now, sixteen years later, it seems one of the game’s developers has had a bad case of the nostalgias. In fact, Michael Dailly is feeling so nostalgic about the game that started it all that he’s set about giving it a facelift by making the original Grand Theft Auto in 3D, just like its brethren.

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 has, for a very long time, dominated the console market sales charts, and although Nintendo’s 3DS may have piped it to top spot in recent times, it has still continued to enjoy one-upmanship over the PlayStation 3 in the home entertainment system bracket; that is, until now. Thanks to the record-breaking success of GTA 5, which, it would seem, nearly every gamer went out to purchase, the PlayStation 3 has leapfrogged its close rival to outsell it for the month of September in the United States.

It seems that no hugely hyped up video game comes without an attached set of problems these days. The sheer size and complexity of newly released games like SimCity and Grand Theft Auto V means that there is always going to be some unwanted little bugs hiding away somewhere. When you introduce variants of the game that are played purely online then you can be asking for real trouble if you don’t get it just right. Rockstar initially had teething troubles with GTA Online but it also seems like a bug in invite-only online games is allowing players to financially benefit to the tune of billions.
