Update: Grand Theft Auto: Trilogy-The final version can be played and purchased on PC again

Update, 11/15/21:

Rockstar’s newly remastered trilogy of Grand Theft Auto III, San Andreas and Vice City, collectively known as Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, can be played on PC again. It can also be purchased again.

This happened after the PC version of the trilogy could not be played and could not be purchased, because Rockstar’s launcher must be used to play the trilogy on the PC, so it will be offline from November 12th. The launcher (and subsequent ability to play games and purchase on PC) was back online yesterday.

Rockstar announced the news in the following way tweet Yesterday, in the same tweet, the company apologized for the inconvenience caused, and “worked hard to improve and update the overall performance as we move forward.”

The original story continues below…


The original story, December 11, 21:

If you purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, you can’t actually play it right now because the Rockstar Games Launcher has been closed and has been closed for nearly 20 hours.

As originally reported IGN, Rockstar’s own game launcher malfunctioned about 18 hours ago because PC players had to access the trilogy in this way, so they couldn’t play their new games. Rockstar also sells the trilogy from PC, so if you don’t own it yet, you can’t buy it now.

“Rockstar Games Launcher’s services and supported games are temporarily offline for maintenance,” the official Rockstar supports Twitter accounts Tweeted yesterday. “After the maintenance is completed, the service will be restored immediately.”

Rock star support Posted an update on Twitter 14 hours after the first tweet: Maintenance is still going on and the launcher is still off. At the time of writing, there have been no updates since then.

In addition to the need for “maintenance”, Rockstar has not officially announced what went wrong or what happened to the trilogy. Maybe something happened on the back end of the launcher, or maybe some problems occurred in the PC version of the code. I hope Rockstar will update players on what happened when the game is back online (and can be purchased again).

While waiting, check out the complete list of tracks available in the trilogy, and then read about how Rockstar had to remove some cheating from it for technical reasons. Check out this story to learn how to develop San Andreas for Oculus Quest 2 later.
