All three original 3D Grand Theft Auto games can hit 4K 60FPS on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Rockstar isn't cutting any corners with its new GTA trilogy remaster collection. The games can run at 4K 60FPS on next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and remasters also support NVIDIA DLSS on PC.
