GTA Online should definitely not be taken as a single game without GTA 5 on the market, according to Rockstar Games.
After it really just meant that Grand Theft Auto Online could find their way to other platforms like the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox one, sooner or later, Rockstar Games was now in another statement against polygon.com announced that they definitely do not intend the online part of Grand Theft Auto 5 individually to bring to market. The multiplayer component is an integral part of the main game, it says:
"GTA Online is free included with each copy of GTA 5 And it does not need a code, an online passport nor anything else in this direction. We have not before, Grand Theft Auto online for sale individually. "
Whether that may be understood as a denial of implementation for the next two next-gen consoles now, or as an indication of a possible release of GTA 5 GTA online in conjunction with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, remains open.
