Not only inside the GTA community but also within the gaming community at large, GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition has generated a lot of buzz. Rockstar has been working on the remasters for quite some time, so leaks and other bits of information were bound to emerge sooner or later.
Since the end of last month, there has been a flurry of activity surrounding the brand, particularly the remasters. Now, new reports claim that the remasters will include GTA V-style controls and HD textures, which will no doubt delight fans.
One of the major fears about the remasters was that the Definitive Edition might merely be a retouched version of the PS2-era titles with little news to offer. However, if the most recent rumors are correct, the new remasters could be just what the GTA franchise needs in terms of energy and originality.

This was backed up by a Rockstar Support blog informing gamers that they may get a $10 discount on their next purchase from the Rockstar Games launcher if they spent more than $15. The Rockstar Games Launcher will be the only way to get GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition on PC.
This could be huge news because GTA’s modern gameplay aspects paired with the nostalgia and attractiveness of earlier games is a match made in heaven. Although it may sound far-fetched at this time, Rockstar can reward fans’ hope by offering three excellent remasters when the game is released.
