Gamers have been waiting for a new Grand Theft Auto drop for a long time. GTA5 online is still doing very well, so a new incarnation isn’t coming any time soon. That won’t stop Rockstar Games from celebrating their past.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is coming soon. No release date was announced for this title, but it will include three of the franchise’s definitive releases, updated in full HD and new features.

Rockstar Games sent out a teaser video that sent fans in to a tizzy. Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and everyone’s favorite, GTA: San Andreas could be getting brand new looks in this updated drop. Then they followed that up with a few tweets to clarify what they have in store.

Later this month marks a very special anniversary for Rockstar Games: 20 years since the original release of Grand Theft Auto III.

In addition to carving a new path for the open world genre, Grand Theft Auto III established Grand Theft Auto as a cultural phenomenon, alongside its two subsequent — and equally legendary — entries in the series, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the Grand Theft Auto fans who have supported the games over the past two decades.

In honor of the upcoming anniversary, today we are excited to announce that all three games will be coming to current generation platforms later this year in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition:

Fans will soon see what Rockstar Games has in store for them in order to thank those dedicated gamers for their years of dedication. There is an expectation that the old games will be presented with updated features, merging the updates from other incanrations with the former words. This is a very exciting prospect and it sent gamers into a ton of wide-eyed and hopeful speculation about exactly what Rockstar Games has in store.

You can check out the tweets from Rockstar Games below, including the original teaser video that put so many fans into a very happy state.
