More evidence that Rockstar Games is actually working on something other than GTA 5 has surfaced -- dataminers have discovered new details referencing Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy.

The best recent evidence for the Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy surfaced last week when GRAC -- the Korean equivalent of the ESRB - listed a rating for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition​​​​​​. Now, a new update to the relatively young Rockstar Launcher has been explored by dataminers and it contains a couple interesting tidbits of information about this upcoming remaster.

New Details Show Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy is Made in Unreal Engine

Fansite GTANet and Rockstar News enthusiast @videotech_ have each independently reported on discovered about the Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy with data indicating that the game is being made in the Unreal Engine. The data they discovered references "gta3unreal" (and similar names for the other games) in one area and "Grand Theft Auto III - Unreal" in another area.

Naturally, both of these data points are a good indication that the game involves the Unreal Engine. Don't get too excited just yet, though -- speculation on Reddit notes that the Unreal Engine could simply be used for a launcher. There's very little data overall, however, and it's equally possible that the games have been completely redone in the Unreal Engine from the ground up. Unreal Engine aside, one further tidbit has been discovered by GTANet: three new icons for these games bordered in gold were also included in the Rockstar Launcher update.

It looks like that the Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy is a real thing. Now the only thing we need to wonder about is whether or not Rockstar Games will be open to modding or if they'll continue to let the DMCAs fly all willy-nilly.
