Rockstar has announced the winner of their recent Rockstar Editor GTA V fan video contest. The winner, pimpedupbadass, won a Logitech mouse and keyboard combo with their Social Club handle engraved, as well as a gift card and some in-game gear. Rockstar also featured some other pretty sweet videos which received some token prizes, but arguably the most important part of the announcement was hidden at the very end.
The upcoming launch of the Rockstar Editor for PS4 and Xbox One as the next update to Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online means the next Rockstar Editor Contest will be the first one with entries across all three platforms – so the creative competition will be fiercer than ever.
Boom, official confirmation!
The Rockstar Editor will be heading to the current generation consoles with the next GTA Online update. There have been rumors about this for a while now, and people were speculating as to what extent will the Editor be ported over to the consoles, as it was apparent from the beginning that it won’t be able to retain full functionality due to hardware limitations.
This rather significant update may also be the cause of the massive 7 hour GTA Online server maintenance. Players were asking Rockstar whether or not the extra long maintenance was in some way related to upcoming DLC, however all the answers were negative. Technically this would have been true even if the maintenance was related to the porting of the Editor, so there is that.
There is still that unannounced GTA Online DLC that needs to launch in August, and if Rockstar comes through there, then we’re looking forward to a really strong month for GTA Online.
Will you guys be giving the console version of the Rockstar Editor when it launches?
