Grand Theft Auto 3 is considered as an important part of the history of video games and its launch in 2001 for PlayStation 2 had a massive impact on the video game industry due to the open world of the game.
This was also one of the reasons how Rockstar Games became this huge game developing and publishing company. Grand Theft Auto III has had relaunches on different platforms, but now it seems that one more is at the door.
The game falls under the category of “computer games”, which covers consoles and obviously PC likewise. Rockstar Games made the registration, specifically Rockstar North, and it shows that it is under the responsibility of the company’s headquarters in the United Kingdom.
It also shows that the version of Grand Theft Auto III that has been uploaded to the system is modified, which would account for an adaptation for current platforms.
So far, no more is known about the plans that Rockstar Games could have for Grand Theft Auto III, although it is very likely that it has something to do with the recent launch of its launcher on PC, which does not include this delivery.
As you may remember, Grand Theft Auto 3 received a remastering with HD graphics for PlayStation 4. Grand Theft Auto 3 is the acclaimed third installment of this world famous saga of action and open world games.
In addition to being able to enjoy a higher resolution, the title has improved its performance to allow us to play 30 fully stable images per second, leaving behind the constant falls suffered by the original European version because of its 50Hz limitation.
As mentioned above, this was the first title of the saga to present an open world in 3D, becoming one of the most impressive games of its time when it was released on PS2.
By surprise, Rockstar Games has launched its own launcher on PC and to celebrate, it allows fans to download the classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for free. Currently, the catalog of this store is made up of the following titles:
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- LA Noire: Complete Edition
- Max Payne 3: Complete Edition
- Bully: Scholarship Edition
They will store everything in the cloud, the launcher will allow you to create collections to buy, and of course the games that are part of your personal library will be updated automatically.
Rockstar Games has not given more details about its plan with the Rockstar Games Launcher, so we do not know if future releases will be exclusive to this store.
