It is not today that we hear rumors about the release of enhanced versions of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, a trend that was established in the past generation of consoles and that should certainly apply to the current generation.
This week, the rumors about the release of these new versions heated up again thanks to a renowned leaker of the GTA franchise and Rockstar games.
At the beginning of the year, the new versions of the PS5 and Xbox Series X between 2023 and 2024. At the time, the speech was taken as market speculation, but this week, the suspicion became even clearer. .
Tez2, the renowned GTA leaker who was the first to reveal that Rockstar Games had canceled the Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV remasters due to the low reception of GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, as well as Kotaku, talked about how major studios are about to receive these new versions of consoles for game development.
Most AAA studios should have received development kits for the mid-gen versions or should have them by early next year.

This would keep up with the previous generation, as the PlayStation 4 Pro was released three years after the PlayStation 4, while the Xbox One X was released a year later.
