The info comes from a huge CVG interview with the Rockstar North boss on GTA 5 Online. This is something that doesn’t happen often because Rockstar don’t do interviews. Here’s the question that touched on the possibility of a PS4 version of GTA 5:
CVG: So do you think the next generation will help and allow you to expand your plans more easily?
Leslie Benzies: We’ll get the current gen version out first and see what happens in the future.
Later, when the subject of PS4‘s imminent release came up and Benzies was asked how Rockstar were planning to, ‘develop GTA Online as the audience migrates over the next year or so’ he replied:
“We already have plans for what the next world holds in terms of missions, new content, clothes, apartments, for the next while. But we really want to see what people are playing, and we’re putting a lot of effort into the back end, so we can keep an eye on exactly how long people are spending in deathmatches, races, and all the other modes – just to see what they’re doing. And if we see any peaks anywhere, then we know where to concentrate our efforts. There’s not a lot of data out there for us. There’s very few games like GTA Online – so we’ll play it by ear and see what the consumers want.”
