Rumor mill: Someone at gtaforums.com this week stated that Rockstar previously posted a support page for its upcoming remasters of three Grand Theft Auto classics, leaking new details about them. If true, the leak describes what improvements the remasters will bring and exposes some suspiciously high system requirements.
Grand Theft Auto Fan Forum user “alloc8or” published what they call the Product Description and PC System Requirements for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. Provided link leads to the error page on the Rockstar support site, which indicates that the company published the information and then quickly removed it. If what’s on the forum is real, the remaster updates of these three games could be significant.
The product description mentions improved lighting, textures and draw distances, and controls redesigned after those in Grand Theft Auto V. System requirements are not Watch Terribly high for a modern game, but looks unusual for remastered games released between 2001 and 2004, and they are higher than the GTAV requirements for PC.
The minimum requirements posted include a GTX 760, while the recommended GTAV graphics card is a GTX 660. They also indicate that 45GB of storage will be required, presumably for all three games combined.
#GTATrilogy The description has been revealed and shows the games will feature new lighting, high-res textures, GTAV-style controls and targeting, and more!

Information for each of the three games is also showed on SteamDB Today. They listed as standalone games, assuming they will be sold separately. So far, Rockstar has only confirmed a PC version of the remaster trilogy for its own Rockstar Games launcher. Steam release may be delayed. Rockstar recently removed the original versions of these games from Steam.
After weeks of rumors, Rockstar confirmed last week that it is remastering Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC. … They will also hit iOS and Android next year. This month marks 20 years since the original GTA III was released. Rockstar only confirmed visual and gameplay improvements in the remastered announcement, without going into details.
