GTA V might run at 4K, 60 FPS on PS5, per German PS Blog post

Grand Theft Auto V, the game that will seemingly be around forever, will apparently get a substantial upgrade when it comes to PS5 later this year. According to a post on the German PS Blog, the upcoming port of the game may run at 4K resolution and up to 60 frames per second.

While the post does mention both 4K and 60 fps, we can’t confirm how GTA V will run just yet, since the text is in German and is translated through Google. The translated text reads “You have never seen the criminal metropolis Los Santos so beautiful when the skyline shines thanks to a bold graphic update in crisp 4K resolution and you make the city extremely smooth and unsafe thanks to a smooth 60 fps.”

We have reached out to Rockstar to confirm whether or not GTA V will run at 4K, 60 FPS on PS5.

If these metrics do end up being true for GTA V, it’s likely they will also extend to GTA Online, the game’s multiplayer component. GTA Online is getting a standalone release on next-gen consoles along with the next-gen port of GTA V on November 11. However, PS5 players will be able to pick up GTA Online‘s standalone version for free until February 2022.

While GTA V hasn’t changed too much since its launch in 2013, Rockstar has continuously updated GTA Online. The game’s latest update, Los Santos Tuners, grew the fleet of cars that players can purchase and soup-up in the game. The update also added a new player hub, the LS Car Meet, where criminals can show off their hottest wheels.

Even without a dedicated camcorder, 4K video is now readily available in the same smooth frame rate as HD. Panasonic today announced the Lumix GH5, the first mirrorless camera that can record 4K-quality footage at 60 frames per second. During the 2017 CES, Panasonic also unveiled the the selfie-inspired mirrorless Lumix GX850 and 60x-zoom Lumix FZ80, but the GH5 is clearly the star of the bunch.

An update to the highly lauded GH4, the first mirrorless camera to shoot in 4K, the GH5 captures both Full HD and 4K footage without the time limits normally posed by cameras. A new sensor with a 1.7 times faster signal readout, paired with a processor that’s 1.3 times faster than the predecessor's, allows this video-centric camera to capture 4K in 60p/50p, Panasonic said.

It's been a big day for Panasonic at the start of Photokina 2016 in Koelnmesse, Germany, with the firm having already announced the new Lumix G85, Lumix LX 10, and Lumix FZ2500. For fans of the "hybrid" photo/video Lumix GH4, Panasonic also teased the new GH5 which is presently in development. The GH5 promises to not only continue the groundwork which was laid out by its predecessor, the GH4, but break new ground in the Digital Single Lens Mirrorless category by offering the first ever mirrorless camera capable of 4K video recording in 60 frames per second.

From today's announcement, the GH5 is expected to record smooth, documentary-style 4K in 60p/50p as well as 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video, a world's first in this type of camera. That new processing power also means the GH5 will see an upgrade of Panasonic's current 4K Photo mode, pushing it to 6K, which will allow users to extract 18-megapixel still images from ultra-high quality video at 30 frames per second. The 6K resolution of the GH5 is nearly 9 times the pixel count of Full-HD.
