Rockstar Games Announces ‘Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition’

It’s not GTA 6 news but it is significant gaming news nonetheless. Today, Rockstar Games announced that the long awaited (and long rumored) Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is coming later this month to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC.

According to Rockstar, “The Definitive Edition will feature across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals.”

All three titles, including Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and (the best one) San Andreas will be hitting consoles later this month. Also according to Rockstar’s announcement, they’re preparing to remove “existing versions of the classic titles from digital retailers next week.”

The announcement comes at a time when gamers across consoles and social media platforms continue to air their grievances with Rockstar Games for the lack of news regarding a new Grand Theft Auto title.

Grand Theft Auto V was first released September 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and since then has seen content dropped mostly for GTA V Online, where Rockstar continues to make serious bank. This past summer, players were upset over the announcement that GTA V would be coming to next generation consoles (PS5 and Xbox One Series X/S) after being on shelves for the last eight years.

With The Definitive Edition coming out around the same time as the anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto III, fans are wondering when, if ever, they’ll be hearing about a sixth Grand Theft Auto title.
