About the GTA Remaster:
Rockstar Games will soon be releasing remasters of its PlayStation 2 era games, namely GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. The remasters will make use of the Unreal Engine and will be a mix of “new and old graphics”. The remaster is being led by one of Rockstar’s newest studios, Rockstar Dundee. Along with the graphics, the games will also feature a new and updated UI. Earlier, it was planned that remasters will be released as a free bundle along with GTA 5’s next-gen port. The plans have since changed and now the remasters will be available separately on a wide range of platforms such as PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC, Stadia, and mobile phones by late October-early November this year.
To conclude, more often than not, remasters receive a lot of love. Mostly it is because they bring along a sense of nostalgia. GTA is no different, today it’s more of a cult than a game and therefore the remastered versions have an audience who is eagerly waiting for their release and rule the streets with the classic cheats.
