‘GTA: The Trilogy’ remastered PC system requirements leak even before Rockstar announces a release date
Rockstar Games left many details in the dark when it announced "GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition." But the rumor mill is not holding back on the information, and the latest leak may have revealed the full PC system requirements for the remastered collection.
The leaker known as alloc8or has been the main source of "GTA: The Trilogy" remastered information since it was announced. On Friday, the leaker unveiled the supposed minimum and recommended system requirements for the bundle's PC version through the GTA Forums.
Per the leaker, "GTA: The Trilogy" will reportedly require Intel Core i5-2700K or AMD FX-6300, 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or 3GB AMD Radeon 280, 8GB RAM, 45GB storage, and Windows 10. But to deliver the best graphical upgrades, the game will need Intel Core i7-660K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600, 4GB GeForce GTX 970, or 4GB AMD Radeon 570, 16GB RAM, 45GB storage, and Windows 10.
However, Rock Paper Shotgun notes that Intel did not release CPUs named i5-2700K and i7-6600K. The report suggested these could just be typo errors and that the leaker may have intended to type "i5-6600K" and "i7-2700K."
Despite the typo errors in the reported "GTA: The Trilogy" PC requirements, alloc8or has been a solid source for fans waiting for the release of the remastered games. On the same day, the leaker revealed the PC requirements, the supposed official description was also posted on the forum site.
Alloc8or suggests that a now-deleted Rockstar support page shared the remastered trilogy's description. Aside from reiterating that "GTA III," "GTA: Vice City," and "GTA: San Andreas" will be remastered, the deleted page also revealed more information on the upgrades included. The games were described as "updated for a new generation, now with across-the-board enhancements including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased draw distances." The leak also revealed that the remasters will feature controls similar to "GTA V."
As mentioned, Rockstar has yet to announce a release date for the "GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition." But recent reports suggest it will happen in late 2021. That seemed to have been corroborated by the same support page, which indicates PC players can get a $10 discount in the future if they purchase the game through store.rockstargames.com or the Rockstar Games Launcher by Jan. 5, 2022.
