The updated and expanded version of GTA V will now be released in March 2022. However, no specific launch date has been announced as of yet. Earlier this year, during Sony's Future Of Gaming event, Rockstar unveiled the GTA 5: expanded edition. The developer had previously stated that the improved edition will have technical upgrades, but had given no further specifics.The game's creators recently announced on their official news page, Rockstar Newswire, that the GTA V Expanded & Enhanced Edition will take a few more months to formally release.

Although Rockstar Games has a solid track record of releasing games on time, it's natural that they want to be certain about everything. Perhaps the postponement until March 2022 is for the best.
