After numerous leaks, Rockstar has officially announced a remastered version of the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) trilogy. This collection will include GTA: III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. All three games will feature graphical improvements while still maintaining the classic look. Rockstar has also said that the trilogy will be released for Android and iOS in the first half of 2022.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait for that long as the GTA collection comes to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC later this year. Although the company hasn’t provided a fixed release date and price, some leaks have already pointed it out.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition Price
Earlier this week, Retailer Base.com started accepting pre-orders for the game at $70 / £70 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. However, the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One of Trilogy are listed at $60 / £60. As for the $70 price point, the CEO of Take-Two (Rockstar’s parent company) has repeatedly stated that he believes that consumers are “ready” for $70 game pricing. Rockstar has yet to confirm official pricing details.
GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition release date
According to industry insider Tom Henderson, the GTA remastered trilogy will be released on November 11. He says that budgets have been allocated to various marketing agencies, and November 11 is the date penciled in. This date is most likely for the digital version of the trilogy.
According to the Polish website PPE, physical copies of the collection will be released on December 7. However, the site suggested that it was only valid for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions. The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S editions will be coming in next year, same as GTA 5’s next-gen edition. Release dates are subject to change, so take this info with a grain of salt.
Rockstar is likely to give an official announcement on GTA III’s 20th anniversary on October 22. The company is also removing the original games from the digital storefronts this week. Based on that, we will likely soon see the trilogy on sale digitally or physically.
