New evidence has emerged that a Grand Theft Auto trilogy collection is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was rated by South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee. This took place on September 30th and adds weight to recent rumors. Originally from Kotaku, the rumors suggest that Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are getting remasters.
The initial rumors suggested that the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy would launch in 2022 for PC and consoles like the Switch. An investor presentation by Take-Two Interactive on August 9th confirmed that they are working on three “iterations of previously released titles”. None of these have yet been announced, of course. The three mystery remasters will join the previously announced Grand Theft Auto V: Expanded and Enhanced and a standalone edition of Grand Theft Auto Online. The former will come to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 in March of 2022. Meanwhile, the latter will arrive on November 11th.
Another detail that supports the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy rumors are DMCA takedowns that took place in August. The mods they took down included content from Grand Theft Auto 3, San Andreas, and Vice City. These mods also included some stuff from other games, such as Bully. Additional mods that got hit took content from older GTA games and added it into Grand Theft Auto V. So these takedowns do seem to support the idea that those three older games could be in the new trilogy.
