The Rockstar Editor is coming to Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4, Xbox One

It was revealed yesterday that Rockstar Games has no plans to bring additional heists to any version of Grand Theft Auto V, but luckily some good news for fans of the series has come to light as well.

While Rockstar has previously said that the Rockstar Editor would be exclusive to PC gamers, it seems that this exclusivity was only for a month or two. In the Asked & Answered Q & A on its website yesterday, Rockstar revealed that the editor would indeed be coming to Grand Theft Auto V on consoles as well.

While this brings the tool to more fans of the game, there will still be some gamers left in the cold. “The Rockstar Editor is an advanced tool requiring additional processing power so it would not be compatible with GTAV on the older systems,” Rockstar wrote, “ but we are currently working on a version tailored for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles — and we hope to release that sometime this summer, or as soon as it is ready.”

Another currently PC-only feature is coming to consoles as well. The Lab radio station, curated by DJs The Alchemist and Oh No, will be coming to all four consoles, so at least those playing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will get some sort of consolation prize. The radio station is said to be coming in “a forthcoming title update,” but no other information was given.

For those hoping that The Lab’s arrival on consoles means that Self Radio, which allows gamers to play their own music inside the game, will be coming to consoles as well, alas the answer is no. Rockstar says that “a fully featured and properly integrated radio station just wouldn’t technically be possible on the consoles as it requires more than the consoles allow at this time.”

For a quick look at what can be done with the Rockstar Editor, take a look at our article showcasing the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5.
