December 14, 1997 is, perhaps, the main date in the history of computer games. It was then that the best project imaginable was born. Yes, you are not mistaken, I am talking about the legendary Grand Theft Auto. You may not know about Mass Effect, Red Dead Redemption, but everyone knows about GTA for sure. Moreover, the success of the series was associated not with the first game, but more with its continuation – Vice City and San Andreas. Many years later, Rock Star decided to release a sequel to the most popular versions. We have collected all the information for you and are ready to share it right now.
Rumors about the release of a remaster of the famous game appeared a long time ago. However, Rock Star to the last tried to keep the announcement of the updated series a secret. For me, this event is no less ambitious than my own birthday. Despite the fact that at the time of the release of Vice City I was only 4 years old, we were constantly chopping into it.
presented to the public an updated version of the trilogy with improved graphics and gameplay. However, the classic look of the original games, plot and mechanics will be preserved. Meet GTA: The Trilogy. It will include the iconic GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas
The announcement was presented only by a short, uninformative teaser, but all users froze in anticipation even then.

When will GTA release
Well-known insider Tom Henderson even then spoke about the release date of GTA: The Trilogy. According to him, the novelty was supposed to be presented to the general public on November 11. Later, Rockstar Games itself confirmed the exit. The rumors were true. Now officially.
The list of supported devices is wide enough. According to RockStar, GTA Trilogy Remastered will be available on the following platforms :
Later, the company went even further and showed us the first trailer for GTA Trilogy Remastered . A short video shows the updated graphics in all three parts. I watched it a long time ago and, I must say, was a little upset.
After watching the Witcher’s streams, the main characters of the trilogy look like they were from 2012. In fact, no significant changes have occurred, they just slightly improved the textures: played with shadows, improved lighting, added post-effects.
To me personally, the assembly reminds me more of a mod than a full-fledged release. Over the years of Grand Theft Auto’s existence, there have been many enthusiasts on the Internet who wanted to make their own changes to the game. I was able to meet those that were an order of magnitude steeper than the original. However, see for yourself.
What I liked the most about this video was the nostalgic music. The whole minute video is literally saturated with it, so you must watch it with sound. You watch the video and literally rush back to 2004. Tears in my eyes, honestly.
GTA Trilogy Remastered
Immediately after the announcement, enthusiasts got down to business and began to offer their own comparisons of classic games with the updated version. Here is one of the best in my opinion:
In theory, there really is a change. Even without the cool editing of RockStar trailers with smooth transitions and cool music, everything looks quite decent. Later, another artist under the nickname Darudnik shared his idea of how the new version was supposed to look.
I completely agree with him. The image shows a really high-quality drawing. Realistic asphalt, just like in the States. Bicycle shadows, greenery – everything here looks more than worthy. Rumors immediately appeared on the network, where the art was passed off as origal, but it is important to understand that the picture has nothing to do with the remaster.
As I said, GTA Trilogy Remastered will be released on November 11 on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch consoles, as well as PC. The media release will take place a little later, on December 7th.
Speaking of the price, I again let a man’s stingy tears. Once I bought a disc in the back room for 150 rubles, and now the new version will cost you 4279 rubles for a PC and 4639 rubles for a PlayStation. For Xbox and Nintendo Switch, prices are in currency only.
Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City and San Andreas have already disappeared from Steam, PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store – games have been officially removed from all sites to make room for remasters.
When will the GTA remaster for Android come out?
But this is all lyrics. When to expect new items on Android? After all, we have gathered here precisely because of this. It is interesting that at the moment you can easily download any version of the game you are interested in at the same prices.
I cannot say that this is bad. In the end, this is the only chance to legally plunge into the distant 2000s and shake off the old days. Nevertheless, everyone has long been sure: there will be GTA remasters for Android. The only thing that will most likely have to wait for a year longer. The new versions of the games should be available in the Google Play and App Store in 2022
