In the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas were brought to life in the game with advanced controls and It is a little disconcerting that the original GTA game has been removed from the list and the only way to play it is a remaster.
The studio displayed a trailer for the revamped GTA Trilogy, which also includes GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas, which shows many of the improvements of the graphics and improvements in the quality of life of the games. PlayStation users can play GTA: San Andreas – The Ultimate Edition on 7 December while Xbox Game Pass holders can join GTA: San Andreas – The Ultimate Edition on 11 November the same day the compilation drops.

The re-launched Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition which also includes GTA III: Vice City and San Andreas will be released on December 7 to be physically followed by the port for iOS and Android in early 2022. The digital version developed by Rockstar Games will be adapted by Grove Street Games with the Unreal Engine for modern platforms. Parallel to the release of GTA Trilogy, the developer also works on a remaster for Grand Theft Auto 5 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series x. There are also rumored to be physical editions for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch.
Rockstar North co-producer Aaron Garbut shares his thoughts about GTA III and how Rockstar Games has grown and evolved over the years. Since the release of Grand Theft Auto originals in 1997, the series shaped a whole genre of games and became a mainstream hit and an engineered controversy in 2001 with Grand Theft Auto 3. A remaster of Grand Theft Auto 3: Vice City, San Andreas originally published on PlayStation 2 was a ground-breaking open-world game from the early 2000s, and its improved appearance and revamped control scheme had it almost on a level with modern action games.
The games feature modern controls inspired by Grand Theft Auto V, visual improvements, and resolution improvements. The improved version of San Andreas will also be available as a standalone version on Xbox Game Pass from day one. Rockstar Games has a release date for players who mark the calendar, and it’s much earlier than you might expect.
