Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition and More Coming Soon

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.

The worlds worst kept secret.

It's been announced for the Switch as well which pretty much confirms that the graphical improvements will be minor and gameplay will be pretty much the same, which is really annoying, especially after Take Two went after all of those people that made GTA 3 and Vice City mods.

Dude, GTA5 came out on the PS3. I'd be happy with PS3 level graphics for these games.

VenomUK954d ago

Holy shit, the legends were true.

roadkillers954d ago

Well... he's complaining about Switch graphics. The Switch can handle more than the PS3.

Aussiesummer954d ago (Edited 954d ago )

U r da problem.

"I'd be happy with PS3 level graphics for these games"

Well you're probably not even going to get that.

Aussiesummer: If U da solutin den we all fukd

It's coming to Mobile, this blows.

RedDevils954d ago

But we already screwed with your problem.

jBlakeeper954d ago

That is impossible to do with a mere remaster.

We want GTA6. Say it with me. We. Want. GTA. 6!

Aussiesummer954d ago

Say it with me: not gonna happen.

jBlakeeper954d ago

It’d be nice, but honestly I’m not even looking forward to whatever GTA 6 will be. It will be some sort of GAAS title where paid content is released over time and then three years later they release the Definitive edition.

Minor? This is ps2 games having ps4 level graphics is a huge improvement hell ps3 level would be huge improvement. Look at gta 4 compared to gta3

RaidenBlack954d ago (Edited 954d ago )

It wont have PS4 level graphics, genius.
They're announcing the remaster with no in-game footage.
The devs behind this remake (R* Dundee) are the same ones who did the Halo MCC (then called, Ruffian Games) partnering with Saber Interactive.

"In addition, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be coming to iOS and Android in the first half of 2022." Doubt it will be any noteworthy enhancements to allow this.

LOGICWINS954d ago

Yes, the graphical improvements will be minor, but that may open up the possibility of 4K/60fps WITH raytracing. Rockstar could handle it the same way Insomniac did with Miles Morales (PS4 version has no raytracing, but the PS5 version does).

Darkborn954d ago

Doubt they would go that far. This is something their gonna toss out the door and make free cash.

neutralgamer1992954d ago

I am hoping for some actual gameplay improvements because graphical improvements can only go so far but actual gameplay improvements would help make the games be more enjoyable. Quality of life features, improvements in gunplay, driving

SullysCigar954d ago

I'd throw a VR option in there too, make it fresh again.

Can’t wait to follow the damn train again.

BrettAwesome954d ago

Well you're supPOSED to follow the the damn train, CJ!!

SDuck954d ago

sorry, you'll be stuck at the drive-through. Only improvements they're doing is increasing his order

DarXyde954d ago

You'll need some energy for that trip.

I recommend dropping by Cluckin' Bell first, and ordering 2 number nines, a number nine large, a number six with extra dip, a number 7, two number forty-fives (one with cheese)....and a large soda.

VenomUK954d ago

I really want this but I hope there are some noticeable visual differences beyond being upscaled to 4k, like new textures and animations.

To all those hoping this might be a remake. :-P
Its just the same old Renderware based games, only spruced up a bit to warrant that "Definitive Edition" moniker.

LucasRuinedChildhood954d ago

They're also removing other versions from storefronts.

"To prepare for launch, we will begin removing existing versions of the classic titles from digital retailers next week."
