The latest one prepares them for the current-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Rockstar Games' latest addition to the GTA franchise was the release the Remastered Edition of the GTA Trilogy. This included reworked versions of the classic titles such as GTA Sand Andreas, GTA Vice City, and GTA 3. Although there was a lot of hype surrounding the game, the game's launch was plagued with issues and Rockstar Games even had to take it down until it could fix them. The game also met with negative critical response from fans and critics alike, as there wasn't enough new stuff to enjoy.
