It will also release on new-generation gaming consoles such as Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5, according to the post. While this is a piece of interesting information, this is not official. Like other leaks and rumors, fans should temper their expectations and take this with a hefty amount of salt.

Last year, rumors about the release of "GTA Trilogy Remastered" started to circulate online after insiders teased about it on GTA Forums. The rumored trilogy remaster, also dubbed as  "GTA PS2 Trilogy," is consists of games like "Grand Theft Auto III," "San Andreas"  and "Vice City." These games are well-loved in the community since they are a set franchise for both PlayStation and Rockstar Games.

Early this year, rumors claim that fans might get more details about the Trilogy remaster in 90 days. In other words, the project could be announced sometime in April or May. Aside from this, Rockstar Games is currently preparing to release "GTA 5 Expanded and Enhanced Edition." The game is scheduled to roll out on new-generation gaming consoles.

Fans are also waiting for the gaming studio's confirmation if it is indeed developing the much-awaited title "GTA 6." Contrary to fans' anticipation, Rockstar Games has not yet said anything related to the sequel.
