ESRB Rates Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City for Xbox One

Grand Theft Auto Episodes from Liberty City headed to Xbox One

Are The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned Xbox One-bound?

Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games’ 2013 smash hit, has been enjoying a sales resurgence as of late, climbing to the top of charts and passing 75 million units sold. And now an even older release from Rockstar’s open-world crime series appears set to make a possible comeback of its own.

The Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) has rated Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City for Xbox One. Interestingly, the ESRB has not rated Episodes from Liberty City for any other platforms, including PlayStation 4 or PC.

An ESRB rating does not guarantee a product release, but since none of the major console holders allow games to be released on their platforms without ESRB ratings, it is a necessary step for any game that is ultimately released on console. If Episodes from Liberty City is indeed Xbox One-bound, there’s no indication at this time as to whether it’s through the Xbox 360 release becoming backwards compatible or via a full re-release or remaster of some sort.

Originally released for Xbox 360 in 2009 and PlayStation 3 and PC in 2010, Episodes from Liberty City is a standalone product comprised of two pieces of DLC (The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony) for 2008’s Grand Theft Auto IV.
