Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two has announced its working on a trio of 'new iterations' of older games, fuelling speculation a Grand Theft Auto remake is on the cards.
Take-Two is yet to reveal the names of the three new projects, but have said they are 'new iterations of previously released titles' with fans believing we could be getting a remastered or remade GTA.
Although there's no guarantees that GTA is one of the upcoming projects - Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick has previously dropped hints he'd be keen to redo the game.
Earlier this year Zelnick was asked if he was considering remastering GTA to which he replied: "It's a great and encouraging question.
"I'm kind of inclined to leave it more as a statement than a question and any update on our release schedule will come from Rockstar Games."
He followed this up in March, saying: "Remastering has always been a part of the strategy. We've done differently than the competition - we don't just port titles over, we actually take the time to do the very best job we can making the title different for the new release, for the new technology that we're launching it on.
"So, we improve the technology, we upgrade the visuals, and we make performance enhancements. And that's why I think our remastered titles typically do so well."
If the rumours are true, then there's still the question of which of the classic GTA back catalogue would be given the remake treatment, but this year is the 20th anniversary of GTA III so it could be prime for a redo.
As you can imagine, fans of the original games are pretty chuffed with the announcement and what it mean.
Posting on Twitter, one person said: "I hope they remaster GTA San Andreas, one of my favourite video games of all time."
Another posted: "Hopefully we'll get the 3D era remasters very, very soon. I'd love to visit Vice City again."
While a third said: "I won't mind Grand Theft Auto Vice City, San Andreas, GTA III, GTA IV remasters."
