Earlier this year, the GTA community experienced one of the biggest pops of excitement followed by a confusing array of feelings shortly afterward.
The PS5 reveal event kicked off with the Rockstar Games logo splashed across the screen, which surely would have caused GTA fans to skip a heartbeat.
However, quickly afterward, the familiar and iconic voice of Ned Luke as Michael De Santa was heard, followed by shots of Los Santos. The trailer was actually for GTA 5, which was announced for the PS5 in an "Expanded and Enhanced" edition.
On top of that, it was also announced that GTA Online would be available as a standalone title around the same time as the release of the "Enhanced" edition. As to what expansions and enhancements Rockstar has in mind is yet to be discovered, but they have released a tentative period for the release of the game.
