Original versions of the GTA trilogy are to be re-listed for sale on PC

Rockstar’s final version of the GTA trilogy had a, um, not-so-great launch last week, and now Rockstar is responding by giving everyone back the original trilogy on PC. You know, the one with surprisingly fewer errors.

In a blog post today, Rockstar apologized for the many technical issues plaguing the remakes, acknowledging that they had not met the standards and that the studio planned to “solve the technical issues and improve each game going forward,” beginning with an update in the next few days.

Meanwhile, however, Rockstar went on to acknowledge that it might not have removed the original, non-definitive edition trilogy from the storefront last month prior to the final edition’s release, and therefore returns the original Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto : Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to Rockstar Store in a Bundle. They are also handing out the package for free to anyone who buys the Definitive Edition trilogy through Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022. Unfortunately, there is nothing here about whether the original trilogy will return to the other storefronts it was picked up from, Among other things, consoles and Steam.

Errors and technical issues are a significant part of the problem with the final editions, but in our review we pointed out a number of other ways in which the return of the GTA Trilogy was surprisingly disrespectful to the original creations. Meanwhile, on a more mysterious note, fans think they may have found a tease for GTA 6 saved on a photo in the final release.
