Rockstar has already moved the next-gen update for Grand Theft Auto V to March 2022, though, after it was previously scheduled for a 2021 release. One would have guessed that Rockstar and Take-Two would want to space these out a bit. re-releases, so if the GTA Remastered trilogy doesn't come this year, then we'd be betting on a late 2022 release.
All in all, rumors suggest that the graphics overhaul won't be extreme. Kotaku's sources compared them to classic titles with heavy graphics mods, though of course these remasters would also come with updated UI and other improvements. The GTA Remastered trilogy could also come first on console, with PC, Google Stadia, and mobile versions coming later. This would be no different from all of Rockstar's most recent releases, with the exception of Max Payne 3, which launched almost simultaneously on PC after the console launch.
Whenever the GTA Remastered trilogy launches on PC, it's sure to be on the Rockstar Games Launcher, as well as, in all likelihood, the Epic Games Store. Red Dead Redemption 2 was released first on those two PC stores, with Steam only after about a month and a half later.
