GTA 6 players will need to upgrade their PlayStation 5 for the best experience

Grand Theft Auto VI is on its way to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles next year, but PS5 owners may not be as prepared as they think they are.

Hands up if you’d just like a copy of GTA VI to fall into your lap? It’s been a long and arduous wait but the next entry in Rockstar Games’ classic series is set to land in 2025. A recent earnings call appeared to suggest GTA VI would most likely drop in January, February or March of that year but a revision of figures since may reflect that it’s now due to launch in April 2025 or beyond. It’s all speculative for now. One thing we do know is that by this summer, Rockstar will probably want to up the ante on the marketing which, hopefully, will mean a new trailer and new gameplay. In the meantime, PS5 owners are being warned that GTA VI may have been made with the rumoured upcoming PS5 Pro in mind.

It’s been rumoured for quite some time that Sony is expected to drop a PlayStation 5 Pro model in the latter half of 2024. The console is due to boast eight-core Zen 2 CPUs which clock in at 4GHz, an RDNA 3 GPU at 2.8 GHZ as well as 16GB of 18,000 MT/s GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 587 GB/s. A powerhouse of a console.

A powerhouse is to be needed if GTA VI’s first trailer is anything to go by. This looks to be an incredibly demanding game - and as pointed out by Push Square, Sony is going to want to make PlayStation the destination where GTA VI feels most at home. If they can launch a console capable of comfortably supporting this whopper of a game, that can surely only prove to be a lucrative business move.

Serkan Toto of consultancy firm Kantan Games said (via Push Square), “There seems to be a broad consensus in the game industry that Sony is indeed preparing a launch of a PS5 Pro in the second half of 2024, and Sony will want to make sure to have a great piece of hardware ready when GTA VI hits in 2025, a launch that will be a shot in the arm for the entire gaming industry.” Would you consider upgrading to a PlayStation 5 Pro, or are we too near the launch of the PlayStation 6?
