GTA 6 trends again on Twitter
GTA 6 was once again trending over the weekend as Rockstar finally confirmed the existence of the GTA Remastered Trilogy – officially known as Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.
Naturally, as a result of the first release in almost two years (three if you don’t count Red Dead Online separately from Red Dead Redemption 2), speculation is wild once again that Rockstar is preparing an announcement for the next GTA instalment. This has only been intensified ever more by a very prominent rumour that points to a release date, map size and announcement before the end of the year.
In the meantime though, we do at the very least have this new remaster to look forward to with more information set to be revealed in the “coming weeks” according to the studio. Additionally, all three games will feature “graphical improvements” and “modern gameplay enhancements”. The teaser trailer can be watched below:
“Later this month marks a very special anniversary for Rockstar Games: 20 years since the original release of Grand Theft Auto III – the game that set players loose in the sprawling, three-dimensional metropolis of Liberty City with a new and unprecedented sense of freedom and immersion, ” reads the announcement.
Grand Theft Auto III originally launched on October 22nd, 2001 and is estimated to have sold over 14.5 million copies. Obviously, with GTA V sales exceeding 150 million units (and counting), Rockstar will be wanting to raise those numbers exponentially.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows in 2021. It will then arrive on iOS and Android in early 2022.
