Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition was released on November 11 across all major platforms including Switch. However, people who bought the game on PC could not play it immediately after it was released. Now, three days later, fans yet it is impossible to access the game they bought a few days ago without updates from Rockstar when GTA Trilogy will become playable again.
Updated Grand Theft Auto Launching the trilogy was very, very difficult, with players across all platforms. message about various graphical errors, crashes of the gameplayas well as other annoying tweaks and tweaks to classic games from the PS2 era. But while players on Xbox One, PS5, or Switch face annoying bugs and strange visual issues, PC players are unable to play any of the games included in the collection.
Shortly after the games came to PC on November 11th, Rockstar pulled them out of the store when the Rockstar Games PC launcher crashed.rendering other Rockstar games like Red dead redemption 2 unplayable for many. After 18+ hours of downtime, the launcher went online again late on the evening of November 12, but Rockstar explained that the updated GTA Trilogy will remain unplayable.
Three days after launch it is still not on the official page of the game storewhich means no one can buy it on PC right now as the game wasn’t launched on Steam but only on the Rockstar Store. Also, if you did buy it, you still won’t be able to play it because it requires an internet connection via Rockstar Games Launcher…
According to Rockstar through this latest update, the reason for the remastered Gta games remain unplayable as the company is currently deleting files that were “inadvertently included in these versions.” There is no information on which files are being deleted, although many speculate that these could be all unlicensed songs that were hanging out in San Andreas code. Or perhaps these are all developer comments and remnants of the infamous Hot Coffee sex mini-game code found in the collection.
As you would expect, this resulted in a lot of disappointment and many requests for refunds. Even though the updated collection didn’t get much positive praise and got a little confused, players still spent $ 60 on these games (which are completely single-player and don’t have any online gameplay, by the way) and now three days later they still can’t play them.
It can be assumed that Rockstar and the developers behind the Grove Street Games remasters are working hard to bring these games back to the PC launcher. In the meantime, I suggest that players buy classic games on Steam while they wait for these remasters to return. but Rockstar has already pulled them out… So … I think to play GTA V?
