For any millennials still feeling old after the tenth anniversary release of Grand Theft Auto III on iOS platforms last fall, get ready for another kick to the proverbial groin this fall thanks to Rockstar Games. On Friday the studio announced the 10th Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for Android and iOS devices.

“To celebrate the 10th anniversary, there will be a series of commemorative assets released, including never-before-seen artwork and a brand new anniversary trailer highlighting some of the most iconic scenes and music from the game. In addition, a limited run of promotional items will be made available for purchase through the Rockstar Warehouse, with select items also available via online giveaways.”

While a new trailer for a decade old game might not sound like the most thrilling release, Rockstar did promise that there will be “several enhancements” to the game in its new mobile edition. Mission checkpoints probably won’t make the cut.

No release date was given for the game.

Grand Theft Auto V, the next new entry in Rockstar’s signature series, is still an unknown quantity. After a number of weeks releasing screenshots from the game on its website, Rockstar has been silent about the new game. Two days prior to the announcement of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’s anniversary edition, the studio released a new piece of concept art for GTAV labeled “Pest Control,” with the promise that “lots of info” about the game would be coming in November.

Grand Theft Auto V publisher 2K Games and its parent company Take-Two Interactive had to adjust financial expectations for the current fiscal year due to the game’s delayed release. Since GTAV was left out of its projections for this year, it’s been assumed that the game will be released in the second quarter of 2013, somewhere between April and June, much like recent Rockstar releases like L.A. Noire, Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption, and even Grand Theft Auto IV.

If Grand Theft Auto V releases in April 2013, that will be exactly five years after its predecessor, meaning that Grand Theft Auto IV was as close to the release of Vice City as V is to it.

Rockstar Games wants you to know: You’re old.

After a decades-long wait, Grand Theft Auto 6 is finally making its formal debut. Rockstar announced that the first trailer for the anticipated open-world game will drop in early December.

It's no stretch to call Grand Theft Auto 6 the most anticipated video game of all time. It's been 10 years since the mega-successful Grand Theft Auto 5 launched and fans have been itching for news on a sequel since. That impatience boiled over last year when Rockstar suffered a major security breach that saw early footage from the game leaking. Now the studio is finally ready to reveal the game on its own terms.

Xbox Game Pass is kicking off July with a major surprise, as Grand Theft Auto V has returned to the service. Rockstar's sales juggernaut leads an otherwise light month for Game Pass, which brings Capcom's Exoprimal as a day-one launch.

This isn't the first time that Grand Theft Auto V has been on Game Pass. It was previously on the service circa 2021 but removed from it that August. Rockstar has a history of putting its games on Game Pass for a brief window before pulling it, as it also did with Red Dead Redemption 2.

After dozens of updates introduced a host of new properties, vehicles, weapons, and other features, Rockstar has finally given the players a larger garage to show off their collection. This new garage, the Eclipse Blvd 50-car garage, is a massive, five-story-tall garage that is, as you can guess, located on the pristine Eclipse Blvd. However, just having the cash and knowing where this swanky garage is isn't quite enough to actually purchase it. GTA Online has a host of ways to buy properties and items, so here's how you can become the proud owner of the Eclipse Blvd 50-car garage.
How to buy the Eclipse Blvd 50-car garage

Before getting into the actual process of purchasing the Eclipse Blvd 50-car garage, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that there are no requirements in terms of progression, level, or anything else of that sort that you need to meet before you have the option to buy it.
