GTA Online 2 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 16th. Will it be a precursor for the next Grand Theft Auto game?
The newest grand theft auto is a question that many are wondering. GTA Online 2 has been announced, but no release date has been given. Many speculate that it will be released before the next Grand Theft Auto game, which may or may not be called GTA 6.

More PlayStation 5 customers have purchased an Xbox Series S, and one reader wonders whether a PlayStation 6 will ever be released.

Too large to be replaced The fact that GTA 5 has sold 150 million copies is incredible, especially when you realize that the only games that come close are Minecraft and 35 years of Tetris. There’s been a lot of discussion recently about GTA 6 and when it’ll be published, and I don’t think it’ll be for a long time. The issue is that GTA 5 is just too popular. As GC said, GTA 5 is a golden goose that has been consistently profitable for the last eight years, and it makes no sense to quit now. Next-generation versions, on the other hand, do.
Now, it’s likely that GTA 6 will be equally as successful, but you can’t be sure. Many members of the GTA team have departed in recent years, including the producer and the primary writer, so there is a significant amount of skill that will be tough to replace. GTA 6 will most certainly be just as big as its predecessor, but it isn’t a certainty, as some may believe.
GTA Online 2 would be simpler to ensure, since they’d clearly employ the same crew as before. I could easily see that occurring as well, given Rockstar’s apparent lack of interest in single-player games in general. When the only solid rumor right now is that GTA 6 will feature a map that changes like Fortnite, I don’t believe the narrative campaign is their top focus. Casper
Money is a powerful motivator. Activision Blizzard seems to be facing some serious repercussions if they continue in their current path. Change occurs when the bottom line is harmed, as you claim. In some ways, that’s bad, but at least you can claim it doesn’t demonstrate any favoritism or exceptionalism. Whatever the reason, good or bad, if a business begins to lose money for any reason, the cause will be eliminated.
I have no clue who any of these Blizzard employees are, but if they’ve been there for 15 years or more, they must have been aware of the issues and done nothing to address them. I still can’t believe the Cosby Suite scandal; it’s so obvious and appeared to include so many individuals – all of whom seemed to have no issue with it — it’s really disgusting.
Now we’ll have to wait and watch whether Call Of Duty suffers as a consequence. Personally, I don’t believe so. There hasn’t been enough interruption for that, and I’m sure Activision has promised changes in order to guarantee the game is released on schedule. As I previously said, if money is on the line, things may rapidly change. Golem
The beginning is slow. I’m not sure how I feel about eFootball. On one side, I like that they’re being upfront about it being a demo, but on the other hand… why? I realize it’s a new name, but it’s not like they haven’t created a football game before. Why are you so hesitant? It’ll probably play a lot like PES, so what’s the big deal?
PES’s issue was that no one wanted to purchase it, not because it wasn’t a decent game. I’m not sure why they’re being so secretive about the rest of it since the free-to-play element should, presumably, address that issue. It seems that this will simply deter others from trying it out, and you’ll have to depend on PES aficionados from the past. Who would most likely prefer that you return it to its rightful name.

Sim that you always use I read your Microsoft Flight Simulator review last week and felt it was fairly accurate. Although I don’t believe I could recommend it to everyone at full price, I would strongly advise anybody with Game Pass to give it a try.
Personally, I’ve gone from being very curious about it to being intrigued, and it’s now one of my go-to games (sorry, titles) whenever I turn on my Xbox Series S.
I like the touring aspect of it, but I must admit that Stonehenge and Mount Rushmore disappointed me somewhat.
Having said that, I’ve been gaming since the days of Game & Watch, and now I’m criticizing something because it doesn’t have every aspect of the whole universe on display yet – how things have changed, eh?
It’s gotten me to the point where I want to know how the whole aircraft dashboard works, and it’s more than willing to educate me.
In terms of graphics and details, it can only get better from here, and I imagine a VR home version would be a logical next step for it. Which has to be beneficial for individuals who are housebound or immobile’s mental health. When I’m older, I’ll definitely consider getting one to take with me to an old people’s home.
Anyway, if you haven’t already, give it a go; you never know, it may just surprise you, as it did me. highway 77
Dark Souls: The Movie is a film based on the video game Dark Souls. This newest episode of Viva La Dirt League’s Souls Logic Series is one of the finest, and most heartfelt, messages to anybody suffering with the games or even just starting out that I’ve ever seen.
Even if you’re just aware of the Soulsbourne phenomenon and have never played any of them, I’d strongly advise anybody who hasn’t watched the series to do so. Some of the episodes from their two series are sure to make you laugh. True, they’re not precisely walkthroughs for the games themselves, but as a fun picture of what it’s like to play through them, they’re fairly accurate. yourhomeisatrisk
Next-generation dynamite I’m a South African, and with the ZAR currency so cheap compared to the US Dollar, I had to decide how much I wanted to spend on a next-generation gaming system. The Xbox Series S was a no-brainer, costing just 6999zar compared to 9999zar for the digital PlayStation 5 and 11999zar for the regular PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
I’ve owned the Xbox Series S for nearly nine months, so I’ve got a lot of experience with it. I play games on a regular basis, so I’ve spent a lot of time with it.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much of a difference there was between the old and new gen consoles after owning both a PlayStation 4 and an Xbox One S at the same time.
The 1440p resolution, ray-tracing, 120 frames per second (if your TV supports it), high-speed SSD, and fast restart are just a few of the features that elevate next-gen gaming to new heights.
The only drawback might be the limited storage capacity, but this is easily remedied by adding a standard Western Digital external HDD (I have both a 2TB and a 1TB), which addresses the problem fast and at a reasonable price, eliminating the need to purchase an expensive SSD.
To conclude, the Xbox Series S is probably one of the greatest purchases I’ve ever made in this price range, and I’m very pleased with it. It’s what I call my “little dynamite console,” since it’s tiny but powerful. Anon
Console shortages for another two years due to a lengthy generation is not a good thing. Apart from annoying people, publishers won’t be able to completely transition to the next generation until at least 2023, and most likely not until a few years beyond that, based on past generations’ reasoning.
It’s no one’s fault, but this generation is shaping up to be a very odd and lengthy one. If this is the last traditional generation, it will not be because consoles have reached their logical end point, but rather because the entire process has been stretched out to the point where alternatives, most notably streaming, have had time to establish themselves before anyone could even consider a PlayStation 6.

The second console is To address Gordon’s query regarding whether or not he should buy an Xbox Series S to go with his PlayStation 5, I say yes!
I, too, was motivated by the fantastic Reader’s Feature over the weekend, purchasing a PlayStation 5 in November of last year and playing wonderful games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure (which is so underappreciated, it’s right up there with Super Mario Odyssey!) and others. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and most recently Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
However, as previously said, the supply of new PlayStation 5 titles quickly ran out, and the attraction of replaying improved PlayStation 4 games in 4K 60fps (currently Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, one of the greatest adventure single-player games ever!) has faded.
As a result of your post, I was able to purchase an almost-new Xbox Series S from an online marketplace for £50 less than the original price, making it very affordable!
I’ve only been playing Games Pass for a few days, but I’m already feeling like a child in a candy store with all the new titles I have access to, and as has been mentioned, I’ve been playing games that I wouldn’t have purchased otherwise!
Some brief observations as a PlayStation 5 user contrasted to a brand new Xbox One S owner:
- The greatest feature on Xbox is definitely Quick Resume! It’s incredible to play a few races on Forza, then hop into Ori for 10 minutes, followed by a flight or two on Flight Sim! Games on the PlayStation 5 load quickly, but you must still go through the start-up process and not simply hop right in.
- Game Pass is once again excellent value for money, the finest £10 a month can purchase! I’ve just played Gears 5 for the first time, and I’m so eager to play other games like The Medium and Yakuza that I didn’t intend to purchase anything else.
- I was amazed by how comfortable the Xbox controller is (I love the rough feel, which aids grip) and, although the PlayStation 5’s adaptive triggers blow it out of the water, I found the Xbox controller’s haptic feedback to be quite pleasant, particularly on the gravel portions of Forza Horizon 4.
- The Xbox Series S is teeny-tiny in comparison to my PlayStation 5, but it looks fantastic! If you don’t have a lot of space surrounding your TV set-up, this is a great option.
- I used to adore my Xbox 360 and can’t wait to play some old favorites like Alan Wake again – the only reason I upgraded to a PlayStation 4 was for the great exclusives like The Last Of Us, Uncharted, and others.
- Finally, now that I possess a PlayStation 5, I’m a bit of a 4K 60fps minimum snob, so although a few titles on the Xbox Series S are at this level (Ori is a stunning looking game), I get the distinct impression that I’m not getting the full graphical brilliance of the Xbox Series X. But I have an LG CX series TV, which does an excellent job of upscaling, as it does with my Switch, which runs at just 1080p – so that’s a drawback to consider.
So, if you’re like me and have grown tired of your PlayStation 5, I strongly advise you to attempt to get a cheaper Xbox Series S with Game Pass to go along with your PlayStation 5 for that next level gaming fix!

GC: I appreciate it.
$20 million for having part of your songs played on Fortnite for ten minutes, Inbox also-rans? The world has been remade. But it’s hard to criticize the artists; they’re not pushing folks to purchase a themed bag or anything. I only hope the kids are paying for everything instead than using their parents’ credit cards.

Is it just me, or are both of Take-rumored Two’s upcoming games piqueing my interest? A Marvel-themed XCOM and Cthulhu meets Saints Row meets XCOM and Cthulhu meets Saints Row meets XCOM and Cthulhu meets Saints Row I’m not sure I’ve ever purchased a Take-Two game instead of a Rockstar game, but I’m excited to see how they come out.

The topic for this week’s Hot Topic is Reader Julian proposed the topic for this weekend’s Inbox, asking whether you’ve ever been reminded of a game by anything banal in real life.
His examples include vehicle rides that remind him of driving games and summer vacations that remind him of Far Cry, but it might be anything from a place that reminds him of a game to a little detail about an in-game item or gadget.
Is this a one-time occurrence or does it happen often, and has it grown more common as the visuals have become more realistic?
