Rockstar Officially Announces Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Remaster

Rockstar Games has officially announced that a Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Remaster is coming soon.

It’s been flung around the rumour mill for a while now, but nothing was ever officially confirmed. Now, Rockstar has put us out of our misery. It has officially announced that a remastered collection of Grand Theft Auto is coming to PC and Consoles soon. The remastered games will include Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas.

Cat’s out of the bag!

Officially, the game will be called ‘Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition’. Bit of a mouthful, if you ask me. A twitter teaser rolls through a bunch of character outlines in GTA’s in a typical smooth style. Aside from this teaser, that’s pretty much all we know so far. Rockstar hasn’t yet released any gameplay of the remastered trilogy, nor has it revealed a set release date.

However, it has spilled the beans on some of the work that’s been done to bring these old games up to modern scratch. According to The Verge, Rockstar says each game has received: ‘across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements.’ About what you can expect from any other game remaster, really.

Interestignly, these remastered games are also releasing on Nintendo Switch. A mobile port of the games is also planned for some time next year. As far as we know, the trilogy will be sold as one huge package. It doesn’t appear that you’ll be able to purchase them seperately.

Still, it’ll be great to get our hands on some new GTA content that isn’t anything to do with Grand Theft Auto V. While still a fantastic game, we are getting a little tired of seeing the same game release on new hardware. It’ll be fantastic to revisit these classic worlds with a fresh coat of modern paint.
