Rockstar has certainly managed to appease its fans by announcing the GTA Remastered Trilogy. However, before getting too excited about it, fans should check out if their PCs are good enough to play it.

Popular GTA leaker alloc8or has revealed the system requirements for the upcoming games on GTAForums. The requirements seem to suggest that the games are going to be much more demanding than GTA 5, let alone the earlier trilogy.

This article compares the system requirements of GTA 5 and the GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition so that fans can see the differences for themselves.

Conclusion

It is clear from the information provided above that the new remastered trilogy is much more demanding than GTA 5. However, this does not necessarily mean that the new GTA Trilogy games will look better. If they turn out to be as unoptimized as GTA 4, the requirements would naturally be much higher than they should be.

However, gamers with low-end PCs should note that the upcoming trilogy may not run on their systems. On the other hand, any PC with current-gen hardware should have no problem running it.
