Following the reported retail release date leak earlier in the month, we now have an official release date for the Grand Theft Auto trilogy remaster. And it comes quite a lot earlier than the 7 December date that we have for the supposed physical release of the games.
The announcement comes straight from the Rockstar Games website. In addition to the release date, that’s also where you can get a glimpse of what the PS2 greats look like in their remastered forms. And let’s just leave it at “your mileage may vary” when it comes to if it looks good or not.
Rockstar also details what else beyond graphics that gets updated with the trilogy remaster. These are the smaller quality of life changes like adapting GTA V’s controller layout for these older games, as well as improved gunplay controls. Mini-maps and navigation is also improved, as are the weapon on radio selection wheels.
The Grand Theft Auto trilogy remaster will be available on essentially all platforms starting 11 November. On PC, it is exclusive to the Rockstar Games Launcher, and has a price of RM249. No prices for the other platforms just yet, at least at the time of writing. Incidentally, Rockstar has also confirmed that the physical copies will indeed be out on 7 December.
