A new Rockstar Launcher update reportedly includes references in its code to the anticipated Grand Theft Auto trilogy remaster.
According to images posted on GTAForums (via GTANet), references to Unreal Engine versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are buried within a Rockstar Launcher update released on Tuesday.
Images showing icons for the trilogy’s achievements have also reportedly leaked, with some fans suggesting that they imply additional content is being added to the games.

In August, Kotaku reported that remasters of the three games were in the final stages of development at Rockstar Dundee, the studio formerly known as Ruffian Games until it was acquired by Take-Two in October 2020.
It claimed the titles were being remastered using Unreal Engine and would offer a mix of “new and old graphics.”

Then in late September, South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee classified Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.
Kotaku sources subsequently claimed that Rockstar is planning to release the trilogy this November.
The collection is reportedly in development for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC, Stadia and mobile phones, although it has been claimed that it could see a staggered release across platforms.
Rockstar recently delayed the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of GTA V from their previously planned November release date to March 2022.
