Rockstar, the game studio behind the iconic Grand Theft Auto franchise, has officially announced that GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is coming to PC, consoles, and mobile devices. And the list of supported devices includes Android, iPhone, and iPad devices.
The worst kept secret is finally out and given the official stamp of approval from the GTA developer itself. According to the press release, the collection will consist of the PlayStation 2 games. This means the bundle will bring GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas as one package with “across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements… while still maintaining the classic look and feel.”
Although we have seen all three titles relaunched in the past, the upcoming updates are long overdue nonetheless. On top of that, the promised improvements to the gameplay and visuals will offer the biggest difference than in any of the previous refreshes. However, some media outlets are of the view that the lack of concrete information as to how these changes will take effect makes delving into details indiscreet, for now.
As far as the existing releases are concerned, Rockstar will remove them from various storefronts starting this week. Moreover, they have not yet made it clear when we should expect the new versions to arrive. That said, we are informed that the coming weeks will offer more insight into the planned release leading things out of the cloud of relative obscurity at present.
