Grand Theft Auto 5

GTA 5, released in 2013 by rockstar games, the official version is available to play on many gaming platforms such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows (pc).

It is one of the most popular and successful open-world video game of all time. And also got many awards.

Do you know that according to Forbes, over 110 million copies of GTA V has been sold and this make it one of the best-selling video games of all time? That's pretty amazing.

A lot of people and gamers are searching for a way to play GTA 5 on a mobile phone (Android or iOS).

The real truth is, there is no official version of Grand theft auto 5 released for mobile phones.

There is also true point here that in future, smartphones will become more powerful than ever, and playing GTA 5 may become possible in the future, just kidding. Or just wait for an official mobile version

There are also rumours that some fan-made version of GTA 5 is available on the internet. These may be released for mobile but we can not compare it to the original version in any way.

Actually, real gamer may never want to play GTA 5 on mobile, and it is eventually not possible till now. And why anyone wants to play this game on a tiny device when they can play on a computer.

On several gaming forums, you can find hundreds of questions about this video game, few are like this, when will GTA 5 come for mobile, is GTA 5 mobile real, etc. These questions don't make any sense as it is nearly impossible to port original GTA 5 to android and iOS.

There are also hundreds of fake apk files and OBB data files available online that claims, it is GTA 5 mobile. Actually, most of them are fake applications/ malware/ or fan-made versions.

If you are thinking, when will GTA 5 will come to mobile phones then it probably won't, and below are some reason about this.

Why GTA 5 May Never Come to Mobile Phones

1. The file size

If we are talking about grand theft auto 5 original size, It's somehow interesting, the original GTA 5 is about 75 GB in size.

Imagine, a lot of today's smartphones have only 64 GB/128 GB internal storage. Actually, it's not about the file size but it's about game contents.

2. Graphics


GTA 5 has the realistic and life-like graphics. When rockstar first introduced the video game in the year 2013, lot of gamers said that the video game is ahead of its time.

Actually, no video game is like grand theft auto 5.

Even, If you try to run GTA 5 on a computer( Intel i3 processor with integrated graphics), it may not run at full speed and in high graphics.

Mobile phones are just a joke in front of this video game.

A mobile phone can not support that much high tech visual effects and graphics.

3. Rockstar May Never Think of GTA 5 mobile

World's one of popular and most successful gaming company, rockstar.

The company already launched some of the old gems to mobile phones such as GTA San Andreas, GTA vice city, GTA 3, etc.

take an example, GTA 3 was first released for ps2 in the year 2001 and after 12 years, rockstar finally launched GTA 3 on mobile platforms. And this is only made possible because today we have powerful smartphones that can support it.

In the case of GTA 5, it is a video game that is way ahead of a regular game and even thinking of running it on mobile phones is impossible.
