Rockstar say that GTAV feels “next-gen”: Oh really?..

September 8, 2013

We saw so many news about GTAV but Rockstar doesn’t cease to amuse me. They say that GTAV “feels next-gen” due to devs getting familiar with the hardware after developing GTA 4.
I have no doubts that the graphics, combat system and many other things some of us we see them as “next-gen” but actually is it?.
Maybe another troll attemp from Rockstar hence GTAV release is months close to PS4 and Xbox-One release.
It’s like they are saying that we don’t need a those two to actually enjoy the game hence it’s so well developed.

Another marketing strategy?. Plus some rumors that GTAV will not get released on PS4 and Xbox-one. Incredible..

To quote:

Speaking with IGN, Rockstar North associate technical director and combat designer Phil Hooker said part of the reason it feels next-gen to the developers is the team was familiar with the hardware after developing GTA 4.

“Every aspect of the game had to be better, richer in gameplay and more fluid and knowing we were launching on the same platforms meant we could focus on extracting the most out of those consoles and making the game as fantastic as possible,” said Hooker.

“In the end we surpassed our own expectations and during development I think everyone working on the game has been astounded by improvements to the graphics, or new mechanics, or AI, or mission scope along the way.

“Hopefully the gamers will see all of these improvements at once in one go, compared to GTA 4 this definitely feels ‘next generation’ to us.”

Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released on September 17.
