One of the worst-kept mysteries in the gaming society has been settled: Rockstar Games is re-releasing three more Grand Theft Auto games. The package includes Grand Theft Auto III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas.

The Grand Theft Auto package: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition is arriving at Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox 1, Xbox Series X/S series, and Desktop following this year. The package will also land on iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.

Rockstar announces the revamped games will have improved visuals and “modern gameplay improvements” while maintaining the look and feel of the originals. More features about the changes will be announced in the coming weeks. Although all three games are masterpieces, their visuals possibly don’t hold up too well in 2021. However, renewed graphics might make them worth returning, while some fans will enjoy being able to play them on Switch.

 

Meanwhile, Rockstar will get rid of the original versions of GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas from digital storefronts beginning next week. But, of course, you’ll still be able to play the classic titles if you got them earlier.

Elsewhere, the publisher plans to commemorate the 20th anniversary of GTA III later this month (sorry, it is that ancient). Some special events and dedicatory gear are coming to GTA Online this fall.

The PS2-era games aren’t the only GTA games that Rockstar is reworking. In March, an extended and improved version of Grand Theft Auto V appeared to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
