GTA 6 is still quite some years away, and with GTA V Enhanced Edition releasing this November, it seems that fans will have to stick to older GTA titles as Rumours of a remastered trilogy collection containing GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas have recently surfaced.

According to Kotaku, all three games will be bundled together and are being remastered using Unreal Engine while the UI will be going through a major visual overhaul as well.

The remastered trilogy is being developed by Rockstar Dundee, previously known as Ruffian Games who had worked on Halo: Master Chief Collection for Xbox and PC as well as Crackdown 2 and 3. Ruffian Games had been working with Rockstar on “unspecified” games, before being acquired by Rockstar last year.

This leak seems to fall in line with Rockstar’s Previous announcement, as they said the following in their newswire article “In honor of the upcoming 20th anniversary of the genre-defining Grand Theft Auto III, we’ll have even more fun surprises to share — including some specifically for GTA Online players.”

Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive has also teased the supposed trilogy during their investor calls. When questioned about the rumors, Strauss Zelnick stated “I’m kind of inclined to leave it more as a statement than a question. And any updates on  our release schedule will come from Rockstar Games.” Furthermore, when an investor inquired about Ruffian Games’ role, Strauss replied “We’re thrilled to welcome the Ruffian team to Rockstar Games and to Take-Two and we think they’re an extraordinarily talented team and we’re looking forward to them becoming a part of Rockstar Games. And beyond that, there’ll be more announcements in due time.

Both VGC and Kotaku have claimed that the trilogy will release on Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series consoles, with a PC release later down the line.

While none of these reports have been confirmed, it would make sense given how GTA 3’s 20 year anniversary is approaching soon.
