Rockstar apologizes for GTA Trilogy

Rockstar will give free classic GTA games to those who purchased the remastered version

Today, November 19, Rockstar apologizes for the GTA Trilogy. The company released a statement where he apologizes for the various technical and visual issues players have reported in the recently released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition. More importantly, Rockstar is promising updates to fix these issues and the company has also announced that it will bring back the previously pulled classic versions of the GTA Trilogy on PC through its own Rockstar Store and owners of remastered games will receive these classic GTA titles for free.

The remastered GTA trilogy was released on November 11th, and shortly thereafter, social media was filled with complaints from gamers who discovered lack of fog, broken rain, ugly character models, old and new glitches, and more. Games are also prone to crash and on Switch, players have reported poor performance and stability.

“The Grand Theft Auto series – and the games that make up this iconic trilogy – are as special to us as we know they are to fans around the world,” Rockstar explained in its statement. "The updated versions of these classic games have not been released in a state that meets our own quality standards, or the standards our fans have come to expect."

“We have ongoing plans to resolve technical issues and improve every game going forward. With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality they deserve.”

Rockstar Apologizes for GTA and Gives Free Games

To apparently make up for the unsuccessful launch and buggy games, Rockstar has announced that it is bringing back the classic versions of GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas through its own Rockstar Games Store.

According to rockstar, these classic games will return in a bundle soon and anyone who owns the new trilogy remastered on PC through the Rockstar store will receive these classic games for free automatically. This deal will last until June 2022. In October, Rockstar withdrew the original versions of these popular GTA games from digital stores with little notice.

It should be noted that these new versions of the game, built using the Unreal engine, were developed by Grove Street Games, not Rockstar. In its statement, Rockstar urged its fans to stop harassing the developers behind these new remasters.

In its statement, Rockstar also said that a new update for the trilogy is coming that will "solve a number of issues" players have with the remastered collection.

The release of these remastered games was a giant mess. When the trilogy was released, the PC players were stopped of playing the remastered titles for days while Rockstar removed files that shouldn't be in the game. The speculation is that these files may have been a bunch of songs that Rockstar no longer had the licenses to use, but that were still within the data and assets in the remastered collection. Rockstar hasn't confirmed what was removed or why, since bringing the games back to PC after the delay.
