Rockstar Games is here with a new announcement related to Grand Theft Auto, and before you even ask, no, it’s not about GTA VI. The latest announcement is related to the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy.
After several delays, the game is officially announced and the Definitive Edition will comprise Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas. The updated games will be released for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via the Rockstar Games Launcher) “later this year”. For mobile, the game will be ported next year.
All three games “will feature across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals.”
The studio is scheduled to release more details about the trilogy in the coming weeks, however, there is still no confirmation as to whether the games will be released as a single package, as individual titles, or both.
Rockstar Games also announced that starting next week, the existing versions of all three games will be removed from their digital storefronts. Rockstar also announced that the games will come to iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.
we are getting the remastered games as part of GTA 3’s 20th anniversary, and GTA Online will also be updated with anniversary-themed events, clothing, liveries, and more.
Besides the definitive edition pack for the anniversary celebrations, Rockstar Games also teased a new GTA Online expansion for this year, saying that “some well-known contacts and familiar friends need your help in expanding their “legit business” — with many more surprises soon to be revealed!”
Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas are some of the best games in the series and frankly, I am happy to receive a remastered version of these titles. However, it’s a fact that we gamers are waiting for an announcement regarding the Grand Theft Auto VI, at least a title reveal will be enough.
