GTA Remastered Trilogy is reportedly coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mobile Devices, and PC later this year.
A new report from Kotaku claims that Crackdown 2 developer Rockstar Dundee is up to development on remasters of three classic PS2 games, including Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The report says that the collection will run on Unreal Engine and will blend “new and old graphics,” which reminded one Kotaku source of a heavily modded classic GTA game.
The GTA remastered trilogy was reportedly originally planned as a bonus for the Next-gen version of GTA 5 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. But, thanks to the Covid pandemic, plans changed more than once. The collection was then planned for release earlier this year and is now slated for late October or early November 2021.
Rockstar will reportedly be looking at the success of these remasters as it eyes potential new ports of other games like Red Dead Redemption, but for now, the focus is on shipping the GTA trilogy as well as GTA 5’s new-gen update.
