Grand Theft Auto trilogy: Definitive edition of Rockstar's GTA 3, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas remasters has been leaked
There have been plenty of rumors that Rockstar Games is working on a remastered version of the classic Grand Theft Auto games GTA 3, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas. The parent company Take-Two has not directly confirmed these rumors, but it has announced that remasters of already released titles are in the making. Thanks to a South Korean administrative committee, it has now become fairly clear that these remakes are in fact remastered versions of the iconic Grand Theft Auto games.
According to a report by Polygon, the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee has been a reliable indicator of upcoming launches of video games in the past. The committee has now rated a game with the official name Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, which leaves little doubt that the bestsellers from the PlayStation 2 and Xbox era are finally getting a version for modern consoles.
Since the regular GTA trilogy (from US$26 on Amazon) is already available in the PlayStation Store for PS4 and on PC via Steam, it is more than likely that this remastered version is intended for the next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, on which the games should be able to run at resolutions of 4K at 60fps. According to an earlier rumor by Kotaku; GTA 3, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas may even receive a major visual overhaul based on the Unreal Engine, and could also be released on the Nintendo Switch handheld console.
