Rockstar, the developer of GTA, has not yet announced anything about the game being launched on these devices, but the game maker has also not denied the news.

It has been the fastest product in the entertainment industry to garner sales of $1 billion. A couple of months back, Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) (the force behind Rockstar Games and consequently Grand Theft Auto V) for the third quarter, stated that it sold a total of 32.5 million units of GTA 5 in 2013. There was no clarification whether more games was sold for Xbox or PS. Revenue of the firm surged to $767 million compared to the $405 million in 2012, for the same quarter.

Not just Xbox and PS 4 players, but PC gamers are also waiting for the game eagerly. U.K. retailer Gamesholds.com is already taking pre-orders to deliver the game when it arrives on these platforms.
