Aww man here we go again, Rockstar has plans to remaster a number of their most famous GTA games. So, get ready to return to Liberty City, Vice City, and classic Los’ Santos but in HD and 4K.
For over a year, rumors have circulated on Reddit, Twitter and other about Rockstar remastering a number of its popular classic PS2-era games like GTA. Evidence started to mount when Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive went after classic GTA mods with DMCA takedowns and then Rockstar announced it would be releasing GTA 5: Expanded and Enhanced for current generation consoles and a stand-alone version of GTA Online on November 11th. Rumors of the developer releasing remasters of GTA 3, GTA 3: Vice City and GTA 3: San Andreas have been popping up online too with Kotaku claiming these three titles are in their final stages of development.
Rockstar is remastering these titles for Unreal Engine and depending on the success of this remastered trilogy, Rockstar could start remastering the other classic games in its portfolio such as the original Red Dead Redemption, Bully and Crackdown 2. Personally, I want to see the remastering of Red Dead Redemption and play as the one and only John Marston again.
The plan to release the trilogy in late October / early November of this year but that time could verry or change and you will be able to play these games on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nintendo Switch, PC, Stadia, and mobile phones.
