Despite it being released over seven and a half years ago, the popularity of GTA 5 keeps increasing with each passing day.

Initially, the game was released only on two platforms: Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. But due to its vast popularity, the game was later ported to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows, and PlayStation 5.
