After months of leaks and speculations, finally the remaster trilogy has been announced. Last week we talked about how there were already so many insane leaks about the trilogy from every corner of the world. This made us wonder why Rockstar Games won’t announce the trilogy already and be done with it. It looks like they took the signal finally and officially green lit the trilogy

“In honor of the upcoming anniversary, today we are excited to announce that all three games will be coming to current generation platforms later this year in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition,” said Rockstar Games in their blog.

As a previous leak already suggested, it will be called Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. The trilogy will be released for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC.

Release Date

According to Rockstar, the remasters are being released as part of GTA 3’s 20th anniversary. But unfortunately, the remasters won’t be releasing this month or maybe this year at all, for that matter.  The exact date for the release of the trilogy wasn’t mentioned by Rockstar games but it we hope to see the release this year itself.

Rockstar Games has stated that they will be pulling the existing versions of the classic titles from digital retailers next week. So, if they pull all those versions from the market and then delay release, it may cost them dearly. Hence, we expect it to release this year itself but who’s to say what’ll happen. Also, the Android and iOS versions of the trilogy will release sometime in the first half of 2022.

The trilogy includes “graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals.” As of now, that is all Rockstar Games has revealed about it. But we are sure to receive some more updates in the coming weeks. Apart from this, GTA Online will also be updated with anniversary-themed events, clothing, liveries and more.
