Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition It was no longer available on the Rockstar Games store on the same day it was released. The trilogy, which comes bundled with remastered versions of GTA III, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas, it was supposed to be playable on November 11, but due to maintenance and other issues, it has been anything but.
Rockstar Games Launcher is now online, but GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is not available to play or purchase as we unintentionally removed files included in these versions. We are sorry for the interruption and hope to have the correct ones soon. https://t.co/NiMNXUKCVh

Rockstar support sent out a tweet saying that the currently remastered package is “not available to play or purchase”, while deleting “files included inadvertently in these versions”. It doesn’t tell us what kind of files you’re deleting, nor does it provide an estimated time frame of when the game might be back online, just pointing out that you expect to replace the bad files “soon”. And as for anyone who managed to get copies of the games before they were eliminated, Rockstar has prevented them from playing. Rockstar also removed previous versions of the games from its store, along with Steam, prior to the release of the remastered trilogy.
Unfortunately, the release of the three remastered games has been nothing but tumultuous. Rockstar Game Launcher was disabled for “maintenance” on Thursday, which not only made the remastered trilogy unplayable, but also rendered Rockstar’s entire line of games, its store, downloads, and on-site system unusable. cloud for more than a day. Rockstar finally restored its Game Launcher service and other services last night.
So far, the first reviews of GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition does not look promising. Reviewers are finding the game full of glitches and bugs, mainly affecting the graphics of the game. Some users have posted their experience on Twitter, and it doesn’t look very good, since a storm with blinding white drops, glaring spelling mistakes, all around funky looking characters, the game has some serious quirks.
The edge contacted Rockstar Games with a request for comment, but did not immediately receive a response. Despite not being available for PC, the games are still available for purchase on the Rockstar Game Store for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X / S, as well as for Nintendo Switch.
