According to a GTA dataminer, the Expanded and Enhanced PS5 edition of GTA V could be delayed by roughly two months.

Grand Theft Auto 5's new-gen port is currently set to launch on March 2022. However, information from Brazilian dataminer Matheusvictorbr states that development of The Expanded and Enhanced version has been "complicated."

The challenges faced during development have risen the chaces of the game being delayed, according to the dataminer. An update from Rockstar has been rumored to emerge soon.

Rockstar have yet to give a full release date for the upgraded verion of GTA V. So far, fans have only been given a window of March 2022. But, as we inch closer to the month in question without any further updates, it becomes increasingly more likely that a delay could be on the horizon.

GTA V, originally released back in 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, has grown to become one of the highest grossing video games of all time. With support for GTA Online continuing, and an upgraded version having already rolled out for the Xbox One and PS4 consoles just a year after release, fans were unsurprised that a new-gen version was scheduled for the Xbox Series X|S and PS5.

Despite still proving to be profitable for Rockstar, the announcement of yet another GTA V port was met with limited enthusiasm from fans. The game is set to turn nine years-old later this year, and its highly-anticipated successor, GTA 6, is still nowhere to be seen.
