Will GTA VI Arrive with the PS5 Pro? Exploring the Big Rumor


GTA fans, our hype levels may have just gone into overdrive.

Rumors are swirling that Rockstar’s upcoming mega-hit Grand Theft Auto 6 could launch bundled with Sony’s rumored PS5 Pro hardware.

Too good to be true?

Let’s analyze this spicy speculation.

PS5 Pro Coming Before GTA 6 Release

This tasty rumor comes courtesy of YouTuber SKizzleAXE, who recently tweeted that his sources suggest the souped-up PS5 Pro will arrive before GTA 6.

With GTA 6 potentially eyeing a 2025 launch, his speculation that PS5 Pro could hit shelves in November 2024 seems plausible.

The timing aligns perfectly to optimize GTA 6 for Sony’s latest console hardware.

And as SKizzleAXE states, Rockstar does prioritize PlayStation for its marquee game launches.

So the idea that PS5 Pro and GTA 6 could be packaged together as a de facto launch bundle is spicy indeed!

But what exactly could this rumored hardware upgrade look like?

PS5 Pro Specs – One Powerful Machine

While not yet confirmed by Sony, purported PS5 Pro developer kit specs recently leaked on social media, showcasing some drool-worthy performance gains:

  • CPU – 4nm AMD Zen 2 architecture, 8 cores, 16 threads, up to 4.4Ghz
  • GPU – Custom AMD Radeon with hardware ray tracing, up to 2.5Ghz, 14-29 TFlops
  • RAM – 16GB GDDR6, 576 GB/s bandwidth
  • Storage – 2TB PCIe Gen 4 Internal SSD

These specs would push over double the processing power and graphics performance of the already beastly base PS5.

We’re talking buttery smooth 60fps GTA gameplay in gorgeous 4K resolution.

Will the Rumor Come True?

Is a special GTA 6 x PS5 Pro launch bundle just a pipedream? Or could this tasty rumor bake into reality?

A recent comment by a former Rockstar dev hinted at PlayStation consoles being the priority for game development, particularly for titles like Grand Theft Auto 6.

His comment sheds light on the studio’s strategy:

“A PC port always comes later because they wanna prioritize what sells first.”

Only time will tell, but the timing and circumstantial evidence seem favorable.

And with Sony struggling to meet PS5 demand, a well-timed mid-gen hardware refresh bundled with GTA 6 would fly off shelves in seconds.
