Grand Theft Auto Remastered trilogy said to be heading to Switch
Since the Nintendo Switch was released, many have waited some type of Grand Theft Auto port in the system, and many wonder if Grand theft auto v it would come to the hybrid system. However now Kotaku has shared a report suggesting that another long-rumored release is on its way to Switch and other systems.
The report indicates that a GTA Remastered trilogy is nearing the end of development, and that the Switch is a supported platform alongside other consoles, PCs, and even mobile devices. The games included are Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Y Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, with the remastering project using a mix of old and new assets via the Unreal Engine.
The studio in charge of the project is reportedly Rockstar Dundee, which was Ruffian Games prior to the acquisition, a team with a history of major releases and remastering work. Like many projects, it has apparently suffered from some delays and plan changes over the past year, with the report indicating that a late October / November release is now on the cards. Supposedly, the trilogy will come in a complete package, potentially as a download-only product.
In any case, this would be the first GTA release on Nintendo hardware since the very decent Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars way back on the DS, so it would certainly be a remarkable arrival.
