GTA 5: How To Change Language

GTA 5 comes in various languages to help give players from different regions a better idea of what’s happening in-game. We have you covered if you want to change GTA 5’s language on your PC or console.

Where is the Language Option in GTA 5?

You cannot configure the game’s language within GTA 5. On PC, you change the in-game language by accessing your game launcher (Steam, Rockstar Games, Epic Games) and changing the launcher’s default language.
