Grand Theft Auto became one of the most important IPs in the PS2 era thanks to GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas. Rockstar could be working on a rehabilitated version of these classics on current systems.

Kotaku has the scoop. In bullet points:

  • Rockstar is developing a series of remasters for GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas.
  • Unreal Engine is the engine chosen for the work and it will be a mix between old and new graphics.
  • Apparently, it looks like a heavy-modded version of a classic GTA game.
  • UI is being revamped retaining the old touch.
  • Nothing about the gameplay, but Rockstar want to be true to the PS2 essence.
  • Rockstar Dundee, the former Ruffian, is the study in charge of this work.
  • Platforms: PS5, PS4, Series, One, PC, Stadia, Switch and mobile devices.
  • Possible release: October-November. PC and mobile ports could be moved to 2022.
  • The megaton: if sales are in line with Rockstar expectations, they can greenlight a Red Dead Redemption 1 remaster.

Thanks, Kotaku.
