Rockstar Games released the long-awaited Next Gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5 for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 on March 15.

One GTA fan blamed it on the Xbox Series X hardware and not Rockstar. “Let’s be honest. The game hasn’t been optimized on XSX. Not a surprise given ps would be a bigger platform now,” they said.
