A week after the premiere, Rockstar takes the floor and comments on the disastrous situation of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. Not only does the studio apologize, but it also announces the restoration of old PC versions.
The review of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition prepared by Kacper leaves no doubt that the refreshed games do not meet expectations and are far from the originals. These may seem archaic and technologically outdated in retrospect, but in 2021 they could be of interest to new players. Although tastes should not be discussed, I can confidently say that the classic edition of the GTA trilogy will defend itself today. More than what Rockstar Games and Grove Street Games have served us last week. So I’m not surprised by the fact that Rockstar representatives decided to speak and apologize – the only question is whether it is not too late.
In today’s statement from Rockstar Games, you can read that the creators of the series are sorry that the whole situation has happened. Interestingly, they openly admit that the games released last week do not meet their standards. This, I must admit, surprises me the most. After all, someone was watching over the production of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. He also had to accept the condition in which the game hit the stores. And this is mainly due to Rockstar Games – the creators of the series.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition to be improved. Rockstar Games apologizes
Rockstar Games announces a number of fixes. They are to bring GTA III, San Andreas and Vice City to such a state that they can be called “Final Edition” and meet the highest standards. The first update is expected to appear in the next few days and will solve a number of problems faced by players. The studio also announces that it has decided to return three classic installments of the GTA trilogy to its Rockstar Store. All in one package. It is not known how much it will cost. It is known, however, that everyone who buys Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition directly from the Rockstar Store by June 30 next year will receive it for free. This also applies to those who have already bought the refreshed trilogy. All games will be available for download and play in the Rockstar Games Launcher.
On the occasion of the apology, representatives of the studio urge to refrain from personal attacks and directing threats towards the team responsible for creating The Definitive Edition. It cannot be denied that part of the gaming community poured out their regrets and frustrations in an unacceptable way from the very beginning. The fact that the team from Grove Street Games did not bear this project, regardless of the circumstances, does not justify such behavior. Be it on social media or offline.
