Grand Theft Auto 5 & GTA Online Delayed to March 2022 (also, Trailer)

Rest

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.
Are they really releasing this game again?
What is this, Skyrim?
 


It begins.

GTA IV was released in 2008.

GTA V was released in 2014.

RDR2 was released in 2019.

Rockstar have a history of having large development gaps between games. But, as I mentioned, they continue to support and release new content on their online games.
You're ignoring Max Payne 3 and all the GTA / Read Dead DLC. Don't forget they also published LA Noire during that period also.

R* used to give us so much more as a publisher. It's absolutely mind-blowing that they have so many studios yet so little output.

Yup. It's pathetic because the only reason they'd have removed it is that they're worried about offending someone

We wish for GTA6, but it'll be nothing like previous games simply because they'll tow the line to avoid upsetting the screaming Twitter users (Who wouldn't buy the game anyway)

This game is lazy anyway. Like the posters above said, it's not like they're having to port it for a new architecture. It's just straight up x86.

Nearly reached a 75% dislike ratio.😆😁👍

Deserved. I still can't believe they are trying to pass this off with no information, trailers that have PS3 footage in them and trailrs that have bugs in them (chair bug on Lester, missing magazine bug on bank heist). They surely have to be trolling right?

No SP DLC in like a decade for their flagship titles, some semi decent content for GTA:O like the business and CP. Then they nerf the business and lobby stuff. RDR:O has had a couple decent outlaw passes, but even that is severely lacking in content. I feel R* are at a crossroads if this isn't a massive troll.

Yet the dumb gamers will rush to the store next march to buy this the 5th time.
How many reiteration of Resident Evil 4 had there been? And how many people went out to buy them each and every time? Capcom were no different then to how Rockstar are being now, and yet one is perfectly acceptable and the other is contemptible. I don’t get gamers sometimes.

They made like 5 RE games since that game. How many GTA came out since 5?

Are you forgetting the constant stream of content they released for GTA Online, or Red Dead Redemption 2 and the content they released for that too? I know it’s nothing compared to that of Capcom and the Resident Evil series, but my point still stands - why is it okay for Capcom to re-release RE4 multiple times with no upgrades or enhancements, but it’s not okay for Rockstar to do the same with their best-seller?

The point is R* not doing a fucking thing and then throwing out a port nearly 10 years later and slapping a new full price tag on it and calling it a day.

So you’re completely ignoring my point about Capcom re-releasing Resident Evil 4 eight times, with a ninth on the way?

Looks exactly the same… I mean the modding community have modified a few timecycles, added ENB and Reshade support, giving so much more life to the game graphically with post pass processing.
 
Am I blind or does this looks exactly like last gen , if they are doing 60 fps how hard can that be to maintain that with some sort of Drs .

Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto Online (and Online updates, including Nightclubs, Casino, Perico Heist, Heists, etc)
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Online (and Online updates, including Outlaw Passes, Role releases and expansions, etc)

Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil Revelations
Resident Evil 5
Resident Evil Revelations 2
Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 7
Resident Evil 8
Resident Evil 2 Remake
Resident Evil 3 Remake
Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City
Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles
Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles

Capcom is rereleasing Resident Evil 4 a LOT. No one denies that. But Rockstar focuses more on updating their online games compared to their single-player games. The scale/scope of these games is hardly comparable, but Resident Evil 5 came out for Xbox 360 and PS3 before RE4's remaster made it. Only Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a fully new game since GTAV came out on Xbox 360 and PS3. GTAV is on its second remaster BEFORE the next GTA comes out. I don't think people would be as upset about the Skyrim and GTA remasters if we at least had something truly new in the series before they gave us yet another remaster of each.

So are there ANY noticeable improvements?

I can kind of understand the missing poster for the showcase sake (if it's actually gone fuck that...censorship sucks)

But is there better
Draw Distance
More traffic
More NPC traffic
Improved Textures
Higher res/FPS
Any geometrical difference
Higher Density

Come on Rockstar give us freaking something!

EDIT
Okay upon watching the comparison video, we can see a "slightly" improved explosion (larger, brighter and more smoke), but that may have also just been the comparison angle, but the clear difference is the lighting...

The lighting has been improved, this much is true... Things certainly look more dynamic, you can see this in
the indoor scenes (look at the lighting in the other room behind Franklin)
The kidnapping scene (the lighting and atmosphere look different, but they also hide it via lens flare
So it looks like lighting, textures and Resolution all recieved a bump (to the PS4/Xbone)


You can see it all more clearly if you watch the 4K video (best comparison I could find)


So there ARE improvements (minor as they may be)

Given the bad press I hope RS makes a "differences" video

There are mods who create far more impressive graphics overhauls than this.
This Enhanced GTA is a slap in the face of GTA players. Look at the dislike ratio of the official trailer. That should say it all what the fans think.
Not going anywhere near this enhanced shit.
 
How much of this is blowback after going after the modding community, tho?
C'mon, seriously?

Look at the trailer and you need to slow down the video to even tell the minor differences from the original. This is a lazy fucking port with 0 effort and to top it off the trailer is horribly edited. They're actually advertising seamless switching between characters as if that's anything new.
I seriously doubt any of this has to do with the modding community. This is just ordinary fans who've had enough of Rockstar's bullshit.
