[Rumor] The GTA remastered trilogy could be out this year

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.
