The long-rumored GTA remastered trilogy has been confirmed to be real, with console and PC releases coming later this year to celebrate the anniversary of GTA 3.
The somewhat unwieldy named Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will release on PS5/PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC later this year. An iOS and Android version of the trilogy will be available in the first half of 2022.
It has been 20 years this month since the first 3D open world GTA game, GTA 3, released on PS2, followed swiftly by Vice City and San Andreas.
Now all three will be available in a single pack with "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 re-re-release of these three games means the last re-release of them on current platforms (a lightly buffed and polished port) will be removed from digital storefronts next week. It also means that Rockstar's publisher Take-Two has resurrected legal action taken against fan-made mods that improved the original games on PC, which seems a little heavy-handed and not a great way to "extend a heartfelt thank you to all the Grand Theft Auto fans who have supported the games over the past two decades." Thinking face emoji.
Looks like Take-Two pulled the trigger and sued the creators of a GTA 3/VC reverse-engineering project for copyright infringement, after a takedown spat earlier this year https://t.co/Zv8WY7wddR pic.twitter.com/9QAOL9u6z4— Adi Robertson (@thedextriarchy) September 2, 2021
