Rockstar Officially Announces GTA Trilogy Remasters And Delisting of Classic GTA Games

After various leaks and rumors, Rockstar Games has finally announced Grand Theft Auto – The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (Wow that’s a mouthful) for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and for the first time on a Nintendo console, the Switch, however these remasters will also be releasing on iOS and Android in the first half of 2022. This also comes after various takedowns from Rockstar Games and Take Two on many mods of the original PS2-era Grand Theft Auto games. One notable project, re3 and reVC, painstakingly reverse engineering the code and open sourcing the project, allowing for fan ports and greater modification of the games. However, the projects have been taken down, and the creators of re3 and reVC are facing a lawsuit from Take-Two to the dismay of many fans.

Rockstar didn’t release any new screenshots or gameplay of these remasters, only saying that they are coming soon and the platforms they’re releasing on. They also have announced that they will be begin delisting the original versions of GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas to “prepare” for the definitive edition release of said games, even though they will be released exclusively on their own Rockstar Launcher, not on Steam.

I would say that if you’re interested in GTA3, Vice City, or San Andreas at all and you want a legitimate copy, you should get the steam releases of these games as soon as possible before they are delisted as the rumors suggest that these re-releases are made within Unreal, which I’m sure will have no compatibility with any existing mods.
