For some time now, rumors and speculations have been circulating about remastered versions of earlier GTA episodes. At the beginning of this year, the publisher Take-Two Interactive even commented on this topic, after which it became quieter. But now the rumor mill is simmering again. The trigger for this is a current report by Kotaku magazine.

It states that there are allegedly remastered versions of GTA 3 (buy now ), GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City are under development. Their release is therefore even imminent: The target is a release in October or early November, although the PC and mobile versions could possibly be a long time coming. In addition, the remaster for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S will appear. The revised versions of the three GTA games are supposedly based on the Unreal Engine and should offer a mix of new and old graphic assets. In this way, the flair of the original is to be retained without, however, having to forego a certain degree of modernization.

More than just a rumor?

The report also states that GTA 3, GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City will appear together in one package and will only be available digitally. In addition to a slightly revised interface, there is also talk of some adjustments to the content in order to prepare it for the current target audience.

However, a statement or even confirmation of these rumors on the part of Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games is pending. Therefore, you should be careful with the whole thing. Would you buy the remastered versions of these GTA episodes? Let us know in the comments!
