According to a report from Kotaku, as well as being corroborated by a select few other sources, it appears a GTA Remastered Trilogy is inbound to Nintendo Switch and other current-gen consoles. All three are said to be remastered using Unreal Engine, with a blend of new and old graphics looking to respect the original’s design.
Currently planned for release in October or November, the GTA Remastered Trilogy will include all three games in one digital package, and it’s headed to PS4, PS5, Xbox, Switch, PC, Stadia, and mobile devices. It’s worth noting though, that plans are constantly changing with countries and cities still dealing with the effects of the delta variant, this means the date could still change at the last moment.
Rockstar Dundee appears to be the studio behind the remasters, who when previously known as Ruffian games assisted on the Master Chief Collection, so the remasters are likely in very good hands. Rockstar Dundee is also currently assisting on the next-gen versions of GTA V for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, with any luck a port of GTA V for Nintendo Switch is possible from the team as well.
Andy Robinson from VGC also backed the report, so the GTA Remastered Trilogy feels more like a when, than if. Hopefully, we’ll be hearing about it sooner rather than later.
I guess I can corroborate this now. https://t.co/aYY0QVAb2X
