Grand Theft Auto 5: Expanded & Enhanced‘s trailer for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X has crossed 100k dislikes on the PlayStation channel and Rockstar Games’ own official YouTube Channel.
The online outrage against GTA V’s remaster has nothing to do with the quality of the game itself, and more with the fatigue players are now feeling from the game as it is being remastered for the third generation consecutively.
The game was originally released back in 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, since then players have been waiting patiently for any hint of GTA Six to no avail. Instead, GTA V was remastered for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and now once again being remastered for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Rocksteady has been under heavy criticism from gamers around the world, accusing the company of heavily ‘milking’ GTA V and getting lazy with no new sequel to the game or any story DLC either. The online community of gamers was quick to point out the PlayStation 2 had 3 GTA games released during its cycle, and now GTA V is getting released for three console generations instead.
