It appears that a remastered collection comprising Rockstar Games’ older but still hugely popular Grand Theft Auto titles is indeed happening. Grant Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has leaked via South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC), seemingly confirming all of those previous rumors regarding a GTA remastered collection. The package is said to comprise updated versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Kotaku shared a number of purported details regarding the GTA remasters back in August:

[…] All three of these games are being remastered using Unreal Engine and will be a mix of “new and old graphics.” One source who claims to have seen a snippet of the games in action said that the visuals reminded them of a heavily-modded version of a classic GTA title. The UI for the games are being updated too, but will retain the same classic style. No details were shared about gameplay, but Kotaku has been told these remastered titles are trying to stay true to the PS2-era GTA games as much as possible.

Sources confirmed that Rockstar Dundee, a Scottish outpost and one of the newest studios at the company, is leading the charge on developing the remastered games. Another source explained that the studio is heavily involved in not just the remasters, but is even helping Rockstar on developing the next-gen GTA V ports that are due out later this year.

The GTA entry that Nibel spotted on South Korea’s GRAC doesn’t list any platforms, but Kotaku’s report suggests that the game will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Switch consoles. The collection will also be released on PC and mobile devices, but not until 2022, it’s claimed.
