The GTA Remasters Are Probably Real and Maybe Planned for Switch

Rumors of Grand Theft Auto remasters have swirled for months and intensified recently as Take-Two started issuing DMCA notices demanding modders remove classic GTA-inspired mods from popular forums.

Now, Kotaku's Zack Zwiezen said he can confirm remasters of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto 3 are in the final stages of development with launches potentially happening in October or November.

The GTA remasters will appear on PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. However, it's possible the PC and mobile ports could be delayed to 2022.

Zwiezen's sources said the remasters feature improved UI and a mix of old and new graphics, but will play very closely to the original PS2 games.

They also said that while plans might change, the intent is releasing all three games in one package that could potentially just be a digital release.

There's no word on when an announcement might take place, however.

Rockstar Dundee is reportedly leading development on the GTA Remaster collection while working on the GTA 5 next-gen ports simultaneously.
