GTA 5 loads three times faster on PS5 than on PS4: time comparison

The release of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online on Xbox Series and PlayStation 5 consoles has translated not only in graphics, but also in speed.

Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) and Grand Theft Auto Online are now a reality on the new generation of consoles, PS5 and Xbox X Series X|S. The return to Los Santos is set to be the most technologically advanced game to date on home platforms, with offers ranging from 50% to 75% off until June. Apart from all the technical, graphical and quality of life improvements implemented by Rockstar Games, there is one aspect that has benefited greatly from today's title: a drastic reduction in loading times.

This is how the loading times of GTA 5 have improved on PS5 compared to PS4

The graphical comparisons and waiting times to load the game have certainly not been long in coming. VGC has tested the PlayStation 5 version of GTA 5's single player mode to see if the traditional initial loading screen will make us wait more than a minute and a half to start playing. The reality is that no: GTA 5 for PS5 loads three times faster than on PlayStation 4.

According to the information provided by this media, which we can confirm in the accompanying video, Grand Theft Auto V for PS5 takes 27 seconds from the time we load it in the start menu until we are at the controls. For its part, on PlayStation 4 it was necessary to wait a minute and a half.

  • Initial loading of GTA 5 for PS5: 27 seconds.
  • Initial loading of GTA 5 for PS4: 1 minute and 33 seconds.
