After several leaks and rumors, it seems to be now confirmed that the remasters of GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas would be in development, and the game would be releasing this year. In addition, the new remasters are also coming to the hybrid console of Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas remasters also confirmed for Nintendo Switch
According to a report by Kotaku, Rockstar Games would be indeed working on the GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas remasters coming out later this year on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and even Mobile devices.
These remastered versions would be in development with the Unreal Engine and would have a “mix of new and old graphics.” A source from Kotaku claims that the graphics are very much similar to a mod-heavy version of a classic GTA game.
In addition to the graphics, the user interface will also be updated, but the same style will be maintained. For the time being, no gameplay details have been shared yet. Kotaku has only said that these remasters will stay as faithful as possible to the original games. The other sources say that the game will feature some changes in the content to make the three titles more suitable for today’s audience.
The GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas remasters would be in development at the Rockstar Dundee studio, which Rockstar Games acquired in October 2020. In addition, the studio is reportedly helping out for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of GTA 5, which will release on November 11.
GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas Remasters Release Date
According to Kotaku, the GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas remasters will release between the end of October and the beginning of November on consoles, while the PC and mobile versions could be delayed to 2022. Also, the three games will apparently be released in a single package that could be sold only in digital format.
After all, considering the declining numbers recorded by GTA 5 every day, it is no surprise that Rockstar wants to continue to re-propose the classic episodes of the franchise.
