Rockstar Games officially reveals Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition

It’s official; Rockstar Games is updating the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy, a collection of games that includes GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA San Andreas. This release will be called Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition. This new game collection will be released on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Switch later this year. The Trilogy will also arrive on iOS and Android in early 2022. 

Rockstar’s updated GTA Trilogy will remaster all three games for modern platforms, offering “across-the-board upgrades”, which will include updated visuals and gameplay enhancements. Each game will retain its classic look and feel, and Rockstar plans to showcase the three games over the coming weeks. 

In preparation for the launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy Definitive Edition, Rockstar will be removing the existing versions of these classic titles from digital retailers later this week. On PC, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition will launch exclusively on Rockstar’s Rockstar Game Launcher on PC. 

Below is what Rockstar had to say about their remastered trilogy of games; 

 


    Later this month marks a very special anniversary for Rockstar Games: 20 years since the original release of Grand Theft Auto III — the game that set players loose in the sprawling, three-dimensional metropolis of Liberty City with a new and unprecedented sense of freedom and immersion. In addition to carving a new path for the open world genre, Grand Theft Auto III established Grand Theft Auto as a cultural phenomenon, alongside its two subsequent — and equally legendary — entries in the series, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the Grand Theft Auto fans who have supported the games over the past two decades. Your love and appreciation for these games has helped push the Grand Theft Auto series forward with every iteration.

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 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will feature across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals. We’re extremely excited to share more about these groundbreaking titles in the coming weeks — stay tuned!

To prepare for launch, we will begin removing existing versions of the classic titles from digital retailers next week. For more information, please visit Rockstar Games Support. In addition, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be coming to iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.
