Since the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2018, it seems like Rockstar Games is once again trying to find its charm. Amid rumors of problems with GTA VI’s development, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S release of GTA V, which now has two generations, is also facing issues.
As stated by Brazilian dataminer/researcher Matheusvictorbr- , the development of GTA V: Expanded and Enhanced has been “difficult”, stating that “at the moment its [release] is still in March, but there is a good chance it will be delayed until April/May “.
The reason for this further delay is reportedly due to the fact that while GTA V was originally intended to be a simple port to next-gen systems with minor improvements, the scope has changed quite drastically.
According to Matheusvictorbr, “with the growth and development of GTA Online, it needs to have an engine that can handle precision and constant growth forward”, so the game seems to take a lot longer than one might think.
What’s interesting is that this potential delay will ultimately benefit fans, with Matheusvictorbr teasing, “As they’re doing a re-adaptation… As I mentioned a while ago, Rockstar Games is preparing 3 amazing things for GTA Online. I can’t say much, but pack your bags.
Will GTA V: Expanded and Enhanced be released in March? However, it is currently unknown that due to reports that the game will indeed be expanded, it looks like the wait will be worth it.
