On March 15, the next-gen editions of the Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online were launched on PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S.
Initially, the game was slated for a release in November 2021 but it got delayed for some reason. When it was finally released, it received a mixed response owing to the presence of many bugs in it. Despite this, the game managed to sell very well in the commercial market.
One of the things GTA fans felt disappointed about was the fact that the game was released exclusively on next-gen consoles. The ones who owned PC did not get to experience this newly released edition of GTA 5 and GTA Online.
Though the graphical enhancement was not very huge, PC gamers did miss out on trying out the new vehicles that were included in the new edition. They also didn’t get the chance to have a look at the much-talked-about Hao’s Special Works vehicle workshop. Recently, GTA 5 was re-rated for PC by the Entertainment Rating Software Board. Now, there is a strong chance of the new edition being launched on PC.

The aforementioned tweet, which was recently posted by GTANet’s Twitter account, features an ESRB rating card meant for Grand Theft Auto 5 on the PC, PS5 and Xbox Series XIS. Since both the base and the original game are quite old, it is not necessary to re-rate them.
The platforms section makes a mention of the PS5, Xbox Series and Windows PC. The description of the game is fairly different from the original game that came out in 2013. Based on this hint, gamers are quite optimistic about GTA 5’s new edition dropping on PC soon.
If something of this sort indeed happens, PC gamers will have access to HDR and Ray Tracing. Once the new edition is launched on PC, they will get the opportunity to try out some of the new cars like Arbiter GT and Karin S95. The HSW vehicle workshop should also be a part of the new edition that is introduced on PC.
