According to a retailer close to the Polish site PPE, it seems that the GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition that will include Grand Theft Auto: III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, will be released in physical format on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on December 7. There will also be physical editions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S | X, but not until 2022.
It is worth mentioning that insider Tom Henderon had mentioned a few days ago that GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition would be released on November 11, so there are two possible scenarios. Either the remaster of the trilogy with a starting date of November 11 was pushed back to December 7, or the date of December 7 is only for the physical editions, although it would not make much sense for Take-Two to make fans wait almost a month compared to its digital launch.
The GTA Trilogy is currently scheduled to be released November 11th.
Budgets have been allocated to various agencies for this date. 🙂https://t.co/8WSxmK4v6k

On the other hand, according to a listing by the British retailer Base.com, the cost of this collection of Rockstar classics would cost no less than $ 60 on PC and old-gen consoles (Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch), and $ 70 on next-gen consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S | X). The prices on the site are listed in both euros and pounds, but generally the price in euros is the same as the price in dollars in other parts of the world.
This may surprise some, but Take-Two Interactive CEO Take-Two Strauss Zelnick had previously commented that gamers are ready to pay $ 70 for an AAA title, and maybe that’s why it costs that on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and an additional $ 10 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S | X, in which it probably has other improved graphics resolutions over its old-gen counterpart.
We will have to wait for the official announcement by Take-Two, but for that price, let’s hope it is not just a remaster, but something closer to a remake. Remember that the original versions of these three titles will stop being sold in digital stores as of tomorrow.
Launching later this year on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will feature incredible updates, including graphical enhancements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while maintaining the classic look of the originals.
GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will also launch on iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.
