GTA Trilogy Returns To Rockstar Games Launcher With New Updates

Following its removal from the Rockstar Launcher, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has officially returned on PC with new updates.

Following its removal outrage, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has officially returned to the Rockstar Launcher with new updates, allowing PC players to experience all three remastered titles once more. The long-anticipated GTA trilogy remaster was released last week across consoles and PC, allowing players to re-experience the classic PS2-era titles revamped with visual enhancements and gameplay improvements on modern platforms. Unfortunately, the Rockstar Launcher went down shortly after its release and the GTA trilogy remaster’s PC version was subsequently taken down, angering many fans that refunded the collection due to the game being completely deleted from libraries without consent.


While the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was believed to be removed from the launcher due to groundbreaking technical issues and bugs that riddled all three titles, Rockstar recently confirmed a theory that the remaster was taken down on PC because certain files had been unintentionally left in GTA: The Definitive Edition‘s final version. These included multiple song tracks previously cut due to licensing issues, and most notably an uncompiled version of the mission scripts from all three games, as well as Rockstar development notes. Additionally, comments from the developers were found that hosted numerous off-putting internal jokes during the development of the game.

According to an official announcement on Twitter by Rockstar GamesGrand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is officially available once more on the Rockstar Launcher for PC players to play or purchase. Rockstar states that moving forward they are working on improving the overall performance of the collection and apologize for the inconvenience. Though no further information is given besides a customer support link for inquires, it’s been reported that the title has received an update. Twitter user and RockstarINTEL reporter videotech_ has posted an image of the Rockstar Launcher with a 4 GB patch file for the GTA trilogy remaster. A changelog on the update is absent but the reporter claims that performance and graphical issues were updated.

Since its release, the GTA trilogy remasters have been the center of mockery on social media, and its numerous bugs and seemingly rushed development have outraged anticipated fans expecting better from a highly renowned developer like Rockstar Games. Its state is so bad that some scorned fans have taken to even longer measures to show their hate. The GTA trilogy remaster sits at 0.5 on Metacritic, making it one of the worst launched titles of 2021 after a lengthy review-bombing by displeased players.

PC players can once again play or purchase the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition and re-experience all three groundbreaking sandbox titles remastered. Despite the overall terrible launch of the collection ruining Rockstar’s continual streak of perfect titles, the developers promise to better the remasters of their iconic open-world franchise, so players can expect to hear bosting news in the future.
