Grand Theft Auto Trilogy is up and running again on PC, promises Rockstar Games.
The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition has had a rough start, ever since it made its debut on Thursday, November 11, 2021. The much awaited release of the remasters of three of the Grand Theft Auto series of video games’ iconic titles, namely, grand Theft Auto III, grand Theft Auto Vice City and grand Theft Auto San Andreas had a messy start with glitches, performance issues and last but not the least, quite a few bugs that are absolutely meme worthy.
However, that was not all. The PC port of the game was unplayable, for quite some time, hours after the launch of the title, as we had earlier reported. Rockstar Support had, from their official Twitter account had tweeted that the Rockstar Games Launcher, which is how PC players play games by Rockstar Games, was under maintenance. The reason cited for the same, in the tweet, especially why thee maintenance coincided with the launch of the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy was to “remove files unintentionally included in these versions”.
The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition Released On November 11, 2021
While Rockstar Games has not revealed the nature of what these unintentionally included files in these versions, it has, since then, been reported (first reported by the Video Games Chronicle), that these included amongst other things, music from the initial game releases that they do not have the licensing for, any longer and developer notes as well as the controversial and sexually explicit mini game, Hot Coffee.
Since then, Rockstar Support has taken to their official Twitter account to announce, via a tweet, that, “Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is again available through the Rockstar Games Launcher for play and purchase. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and are working to improve and update overall performance as we move forward”.
