The PlayStation Showcase had bad news for GTA 5 fans, as the PS5 version was unceremoniously postponed to March 2022. Unfortunately, there is no exact date yet. However, the postponement of several months may not be a cause for sadness for many of you, but rather a cause for joy.
It’s still raining cash in GTA Online
If you regularly use GTA Online for PS4 and are a member of PS Plus, you should already know that you will find a huge cash gift in your in-game account every month. Because PS Plus users have received 1 million GTA dollars every month since June 2020.
What does this have to do with the GTA 5 postponement? The monthly rain of money in GTA Online only applies until the PS5 version of GTA 5 appears. The reason is that GTA Online will be playable for free for all owners of the PS5 version. To make the re-release palatable to PS4 players, Rockstar Games is distributing the monetary gifts.
Because the PS5 version of GTA 5 will not appear until March 2022, there will be another four months of waiting on top of that. That means you have $ 4 million more in GTA to spend in the game.

In addition to the free GTA dollars, PS Plus has a few other advantages. For example, the subscription service enables you to use the online function of all games and to win big discounts in the PS Store. You can find everything you need to know about PS Plus in our overview article.
