GTA Remastered Trilogy is reportedly in development
It’s not GTA 6, but a GTA Remastered Trilogy is reportedly coming to multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch.
It’s been nearly eight years since the last entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise was released. Fans have been patiently waiting for news regarding the release of GTA 6, while Rockstar Games has continued to develop new content for GTA 5.
Well, GTA fans can rejoice as Rockstar Games might be working on series of remasters that have nothing to do with GTA 5.
In fact, it’s been reported that three PS2-era GTA games are being remastered and brought to the Nintendo Switch.

According to a report from Kotaku, three unnamed sources have leaked the development of the GTA remastered Trilogy.
Kotaku wrote, “we can confirm via corroborating details from three sources that GTA remasters are currently in the final stages of development.”
However, upon reaching out to Rockstar directly, Kotaku has yet to receive a response.
The three titles reportedly in development for the GTA Remastered Trilogy are Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. They are being developed in Unreal Engine with a mix of old and new graphics.
Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two had revealed recently that three unannounced remasters were currently in development, lending even more credibility to these newest report.
They will reportedly be made available on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, Google Stadia, and mobile devices.
The studio reportedly in charge of the development of these titles is Rockstar Dundee. Previously known as Ruffian Games, the studio had a hand in developing Crackdown 2 & 3, Master Chief Collection, and the current-gen GTA V ports.
A digital bundle, including all three titles, is reportedly planned to release around late October/early November. However, the PC and mobile ports of the GTA Remastered Trilogy could be postponed until next year.
That being said, until we hear from Rockstar Games, we won’t have any official information regarding this reported GTA Remastered Trilogy. With the alleged time of release, we could possibly be getting official announcements sometime in the near future.
