The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Remaster was one of those games which had got several rumours and now Rockstar Games has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas are each getting HD remasters. They’ll be released in a package called Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy is coming to PC via the Rockstar Games Launcher no Steam at launch it seems, PlayStation, Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch will host them, too. Also, Rockstar Games has said that it will come to iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.
According to Rockstar Games, the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy has gotten “across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements.” The company chose to take the faithful route for its remasters, leaving “the classic look and feel of the originals” how they were presented on the PS2.
Rockstar Games has also confirmed that the existing versions of all three games will be removed from digital storefronts like Steam next week. Rockstar also announced that the games will come to iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the release date, the remasters are being released as part of GTA 3’s 20th anniversary, and GTA Online will also be updated with anniversary-themed events, clothing, liveries and more. Rockstar teases that there will be surprises in store for GTA Online players, “including the upcoming possibility of some unusual activity occurring in and around Southern San Andreas…”
Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas are all three considered some of the best games in the series, so it seems like Rockstar games want players to relive these games and that’s the reason they are making the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy.
