Hope you are enjoying your remastered version of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition. That is unless you were expecting to play it on your PC. However, since its launch on November 11, but Rockstar Games hasn’t made it available to PC users. At first, it was down for maintenance, but that grew when the launcher returned as the game did not.
Rockstar Support sent out a tweet saying that the remastered bundle is currently “unavailable to play or purchase,” while it takes out “files unintentionally included in these versions.”
It doesn’t tell us what type of files it’s removing or provide an estimated time frame of when the game might come back online. It only notes that it hopes to replace the incorrect files “soon.” And as for anyone who managed to snag copies of the games before it was taken down, Rockstar has barred them from playing. Rockstar also took down the older versions of the games from its store — along with Steam — prior to the release of the remastered trilogy.
GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition is a mess for PC Users.
As of this writing, which is late on a Sunday, Rockstar has just released the game. The Trilogy came packaged with the remastered versions of GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas.
So far, early reviews of GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition aren’t looking promising. Reviewers are finding the game filled with glitches and bugs, mainly affecting the game’s graphics. Some users have posted their experience on Twitter, and it doesn’t look pretty. Everything from a rainstorm with blinding white droplets, blatant spelling errors, to just all-around funky-looking characters. To say the game has some serious quirks, seems to be an understatement.
Some people are demanding refunds, to which Rockstar is directing people to DM them. This way they can help people one-on-one. While PC users are shutout, console gamers are still able to download and play the game. It is available for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
