Good news for PC players!

April 17, 2022

Rockstar Games mostly prioritizes consoles over PC in launching new games, and now it seems this is the policy for updates as well. A recent re-rating on ESRB, adds PC to the target platforms of GTA 5 next to Xbox Series X|S and PS5.

It’s been a month since Rockstar Games delivered an improved version of Grand Theft Auto 5 on next-gen consoles, and players seem to be happy with all the changes made in the Enhanced and Expanded Edition, but PC players, once again, were left empty-handed.

This is always painful anticipation for PC gamers until they receive an official confirmation from Rockstar Games on their titles or even updates eventually hitting PC. That being said, a recent re-rating on ESRB increases the possibility of getting next-gen improvements on PC in the near future.


The Next-Gen Version of GTA 5 on ESRB Now Includes PC As Well

When Rockstar Games decided to launch a new Enhanced and Expanded version of Grand Theft Auto 5 on next-gen consoles, the game was re-rated on ESRB for the new consoles regarding the new changes.

Now, it was recently spotted on ESRB that GTA 5 has been re-rated for PC as well. While this is not an official statement for PC enhancements, it’s surely a big hint on a possible update coming to the PC version of the game.

GTA V Enhanced and Expanded Edition was launched back in March 2022 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. The Online part of the game is available for free until June 2022 for PS Plus subscribers on PS5. It’s yet to be seen whether the enhancement update would be free for PC players or they are going to need to pay for it similar to console players.
