While basically everyone one planet earth is waiting for GTA 6, Kotaku seems to have confirmed that remasters of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas are in development at Rockstar Games. The gaming medium corroborated statements from three independent sources familiar with the matter. What’s more, the trilogy should come out this year!
GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas remasters incoming
Rockstar Games and parent company Take-Two spent the past couple of months cracking down on popular mods for GTA V. Those mods almost exclusively implemented content from, you guessed it, GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas into GTA V. This led many fans to believe remasters of those games were in the works.
This is however one of a journalistic medium combining and comparing multiple reliable source, And everything points towards a remaster of the three classic GTA’s, according to those sources.
What’s more, the crackdown on mods, and a recent statement by Take-Two really get our Grand Theft Auto-blood pumping. The company announced to investors that “three unannounced iterations of previously released titles” are in the works, PC Gamer details. Add those the three other remasters set for release next year, and it isn’t hard to believe that at least some of those are GTA-remasters.
All platforms covered
The remaster trilogy is said to be in development at Rockstar Dundee. The Scottish studio is a relatively new part of the Rockstar conglomerate. Apparently the revived GTA’s all come out on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PC, Stadia, and mobile phones.
It’s somewhat hard to believe all those platforms are going to be covered, though. GTA V isn’t even available on Nintendo Switch, and GTA V is available on EVERYTHING. It would make total sense for Rockstar to release GTA V for the Switch, and it would probably sell way better than any remaster.
Whatever the case, we’re allegedly going to find out really soon. The GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas remasters should come out in October or early November 2021!
