The Game Rating and Administration Committee rated Grand Theft Auto: Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, proving the rumored remake may be real.
The long-rumored Grand Theft Auto trilogy remasters may be legitimate, as the “Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” has been rated in South Korea. Although not an official confirmation, a rating for the GTA remasters is the most concrete proof of the game to date and could also suggest it’s coming sooner rather than later. Summer reports claimed the GTA trilogy remasters would release in 2021, but Rockstar Games has yet to make any indications about any potential plans for a GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas re-release.
Presently, the only game on Rockstar’s release schedule is the new-gen port of Grand Theft Auto V, which was originally meant to release in November 2021 but was pushed back to March of 2022 for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. Rumors suggested Rockstar was planning to time both releases near one another, but it’s possible the classic GTA trilogy remasters could aim to fill the gap left by GTA 5‘s upgrade in 2021. In light of the latest leak, it seems Rockstar’s plans might already be in motion.
South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee rated Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition on September 30 (via Nibel). The rating notes the collection is not for children but does not otherwise give any details about the release or its platforms. The GTA trilogy remasters have been rumored since early 2021, but an official ratings board acknowledgement could mean it’s real and potentially coming soon. Video games are typically only rated after being sent in by publishers – often but not always when close to release. There are some instances where ratings boards jump the gun on games that haven’t been announced, such as when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered leaked a whole year before it actually came out.
