KEY POINTS

  • Rockstar Games is set to release "GTA 5: Enhanced Edition" in November
  • The gaming studio is believed to be working on "GTA Trilogy Remastered"
  • Rockstar Games hasn't confirmed if "GTA Trilogy Remastered" is in works

There are many things "Grand Theft Auto" fans should be excited about despite Rockstar Games' silence on "GTA 6." While rumors of "GTA Trilogy Remastered" currently in development are seemingly true, a new leak reveals disappointing news about the release window of the highly-anticipated trio.

The supposed latest news about "GTA Trilogy Remastered" came from industry insider Tom Henderson. According to him, earlier reports about the "GTA" trio are accurate, except on the detail of its release window.

On Twitter, Henderson said, "I wasn't going to mention the GTA Remastered Trilogy because everything I've heard has been covered - The only difference is that I don't believe the launch time frame is correct." He believes instead of this year, the game will be released sometime in 2022.

Sadly, the insider did not offer much about the release window other than the year, which could be anytime between the first and last quarter of 2022. Granting Henderson's information is correct, it looks like fans are going to wait longer for the release of "GTA Trilogy Remastered" -- more than what was anticipated earlier.

Rumors about the remasters have been rife online but it intensified following the release of Take-Two Interactive's financial report and conference's slide. In the report, the American video games  holding company mentioned "new iterations of previously released titles."

Meanwhile, in the conference slide, Take-Two Interactive revealed three of the previously released games would get new iterations. These are "Grand Theft Auto V: Expanded and Enhanced," "Grand Theft Auto Online" standalone and "Kerbal Space Program."

Fans believe the three other games that would get new iterations are "Grand Theft Auto 3," "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" and "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," also known as the "GTA Trilogy Remastered." Kotaku also confirmed these games, citing three different sources attesting Take-Two was referring to the rumored remasters.

It is worth noting that while details about "GTA Trilogy Remastered" are interesting, these are not official. Like all other leaks and rumors, fans should temper their expectations and take the information as highly speculative at this stage.

Rockstar Games is scheduled to release "GTA 5: Enhanced Edition" in Nov. 2021.
