It was just the other day that Sony accidentally leaked (which they have since apologized for) some game files of Rockstar’s upcoming Grand Theft Auto 5, and now it looks like Sony has once again caused some confusion and a bit of a PR mess for Rockstar by tweeting the wrong console. According to a tweet by Sony UK in response to a fan, “@mrxmas123 GTA V is going to be amazing, especially on the PS4! What other games are you looking forward to playing, Norman?”
Naturally this caused a bit of confusion not to mention excitement since GTA 5 has yet to be announced for next-gen consoles simply because the number of gamers using current-gen consoles is higher, thus the game would be able to reach out to a wider audience at launch. When Kotaku reached out to Rockstar to comment on the tweet, they claim that it was in fact a typo, and that Sony UK’s Twitter account was not directly related to Sony’s PlayStation division which might explain the confusion. In any case it appears to be a false alarm for now, so if you were excited about GTA 5 for next-gen consoles, we’re sorry for dashing your hopes!
