In a surprising development, the iconic game Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) has now breached the boundaries of mobile gaming. Launched originally in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the game’s longevity and popularity are largely attributed to its availability across multiple generations of gaming platforms and its compelling online version, GTA Online.
Over the years, Rockstar Games has consistently expanded the reach of GTA V, porting it to a variety of platforms including PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. Now, the gaming giant has turned its attention to the mobile gaming space.
Despite there being no previous hints or suggestions that Rockstar Games would take this step, a recent report by Gfinity confirms that it is indeed possible to play GTA V on mobile devices. This monumental feat has been accomplished via the Steam Link app.
To bring the chaos and excitement of Los Santos to your mobile device, gamers must first own a copy of GTA V on the Steam platform. They must then download the Steam Link app onto their PC, which can be paired with their mobile device. With these steps completed, players are free to dive into the captivating world of GTA V on their mobile devices.
However, it’s important to note that Gfinity points out that the experience of playing GTA V on a mobile device might not parallel the gaming experience on traditional platforms. Regardless, the very fact that one can engage in GTA V on such compact devices is nothing short of remarkable.
In related news, Rockstar Games is also reportedly working on a new game project, not linked to the Grand Theft Auto franchise. While GTA fans anxiously await the arrival of the next instalment, Grand Theft Auto VI, no official release date has been disclosed. Nevertheless, it is expected that the game will hit the shelves for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S between 2024 and 2025. As we wait for the new release, the opportunity to experience GTA V on mobile devices will no doubt keep fans of the series engaged and entertained.
