Is Rockstar working on a Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy?

Arguably the most anticipated game in the world right now is the unannounced GTA 6. But a big leak suggests that its delay could be due to a supposed GTA Remaster Trilogy that Rockstar is working on.

There seems to be a new GTA VI rumor each week that points towards a possible reveal for Rockstar’s next open-world extravaganza. We’ve recently covered several stories of this nature including a Rockstar employee having “unannounced titles” on their LinkedIn profile and a possible GTA 6 Super Bowl 55 reveal.

Now some new evidence is suggesting that it’s not only GTA 6 that is in the works. In addition to the next gigantic entry in the acclaimed GTA series, we could also be seeing a reimaging of the three main games from the PS2 era.

GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas

The three games that cemented Rockstar’s legacy are all getting the proper remaster treatment if a post on the GTA Forums is to be believed.

Mach1bud is a staff member of the forum and posted the message “Soon” which naturally piqued the interest of many of the members of the forum.

But the intrigue escalated very quickly when this message was posted, “Oh I know very well what forum I should be in and I know that you know that if I were to post these in those forums everyone would begin to know what we know. I’ve wanted this to happen for many years now and I’m glad it’s happening sooner rather than later.”

GTA Vice City

Naturally, the alarm bells started ringing and the message board became rife with rumors. This quote is also further supported by a tweet from @uNiGTANet – an Admin for GTA Forums – who posted a picture of three custom-made Shark Cards.

With closer inspection, you can see that the card numbers contain “2001” “2002” “2004” “2013” and “B46”. The first three numbers represent GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. 2013 is the year that GTA 5 came out, and the final three characters can be read out as “before 6” – as in GTA 6.

If it was anyone else who has posted this information then it may be misconstrued as mere fan speculation. But given that it’s coming from admins on the GTA Forums, then it does make you wonder.

If we do get GTA Remasters, will they come out before GTA 6?
