Rockstar Games is working on remastered versions of a trio of classic Grand Theft Auto titles and will release the remastered GTA trilogy on different platforms – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC, Stadia, and mobile, reports Kotaku.
GTA trilogy to be remastered (not a remake) include classic PS2 titles: Grand Theft Auto 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas, and will come later this year (late October or early November). Though not much information is out on how or what the ‘remastered’ games will be like, official details will come soon as the games are at their final stage of completion.
Rockstar Dundee, previously known as Ruffian Games, is working on the remastered GTA trilogy, with the essence of old and new graphics to make them resemble the modded versions of the Grand Theft Auto while staying honest to the originality of the games. It’s previously rumored that the trilogy is coming as a bonus with the re-release of the Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2. But, facts are still unclear about the plan.
However, Kotaku reports that PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and Stadia versions can launch this year, but PC and mobile ports might get delayed to next year. Earlier this year, the parent company of Rockstar Games, Take-Two, took down the GTA mods, harming the mod community. It can be related to the remastered trilogy release, as the mods may hinder the plans.
Currently, the remastered GTA trilogy is set to release in October or November 2021 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC, Stadia, and mobile. With hopes to receive some official announcement from Rockstar Games about the trilogy during the release of next-gen ports of GTA 5 and GTA Online.
