The GTA Remastered Trilogy Appears To Be Real, And Coming To Switch

Rockstar is also bringing the games to PS5 and Xbox consoles, naturally

After months of rumors and speculation, Kotaku has learned from sources that Rockstar Games may be remastering three classic Grand Theft Auto games. Currently, it appears these games will be released later this fall for a multitude of platforms, including the portable Nintendo Switch.

For the past year, rumors have swirled on Twitter, Reddit, and various message boards that Rockstar is working on remakes or remasters of classic, PS2-era Grand Theft Auto titles. These rumors only grew in popularity as Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive, used DMCA takedowns to remove classic GTA mods from the internet while announcing that the publisher had three remastered games in development. While Kotaku can’t confirm what all of those teased remastered titles specifically are, we can confirm via corroborating details from three sources that GTA remasters are currently in the final stages of development.

Kotaku has reached out to Rockstar about these remastered games and future GTA re-releases. But our sources have, so far, had reliable track records that have alerted us to updates in GTA Online and Red Dead Online weeks if not months in advance.

According to these sources, Rockstar is actively developing remastered versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. All three of these games are being remastered using Unreal Engine and will be a mix of “new and old graphics.” One source who claims to have seen a snippet of the games in action said that the visuals reminded them of a heavily-modded version of a classic GTA title. The UI for the games are being updated too, but will retain the same classic style. No details were shared about gameplay, but Kotaku has been told these remastered titles are trying to stay true to the PS2-era GTA games as much as possible.

I really hope this is more than a rumor, if not Kotaku has lost my respect.

Also if Rockstar is remastering/remaking these titles in Unreal Engine, it makes sense why private projects like these were canceled:


This was a youtuber remastering SA himself. Who know, maybe R* even hired this dude.

Oh c'mon, at this point it looks like the guy only chips in when all info is out already. Still hoping for an October release.

October 22nd is the date everybody is expecting the remasters to be announced, as it's the 20 year anniversary of GTA III.

Also: Rockstar has gone almost a week without a pinned thread, might seem like something small (because it is), but this is highly unusual for them. Today is also a Thursday, a day Rockstar loves to announce stuff. We'll see...

BUT... were those titles announced? It seems kinda odd for R* to just drop this level of banger on our heads unannounced.

They were all announced, this is all just pure speculation. R* is a goddamn mystery.
