Original Versions of the GTA Trilogy to Be Relisted for Sale on PC

Rockstar's definitive edition 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 bugs.

In a blog post today, Rockstar apologized for the numerous technical issues plaguing the remakes, acknowledging that they hadn't met standards, and that the studio was planning to "address the technical issues and to improve each game going forward," beginning with an update in the coming days.

In the meantime though, Rockstar went further to acknowledge that maybe it ought not have removed the original, non-definitive edition trilogy from storefronts last month ahead of the definitive edition's release, and so it's returning the original Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to the Rockstar Store in a bundle. They're also giving the bundle out for free to anyone who purchases the Definitive Edition trilogy via the Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022. Sadly, there's nothing here about whether the original trilogy will return to the other storefronts it was pulled from, including consoles and Steam.

Bugs and technical issues are a sizeable bit of the problem with the definitive 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 might have found a tease for GTA 6 hidden in a photo within the Definitive Edition.
