Update: Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – the definitive version available to play and purchase on PC again


Update 11/15/21:

Rockstar’s new remastered trilogy from Grand Theft Auto III, San Andreas, and Vice City, known collectively as Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, can be played again on PC. It is also available for purchase again.

This comes after the PC version of the trilogy was unplayable and unavailable for purchase starting November 12, as the Rockstar player, which must be used to play the trilogy on PC, went offline. The launcher (and subsequent ability to play and purchase the game on PC) was brought back online yesterday.

Rockstar announced this by a tweet Yesterday, in the same tweet, the company said it sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience and is “working to improve and update overall performance as we move forward.”

The original story continues below…


Original story, 11/12/21:

If you purchase Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, you won’t actually be able to play it at the moment because Rockstar Games Launcher is down and has been down for nearly 20 hours.

As I mentioned for the first time before IGNRockstar’s game player has been down for about 18 hours and since that’s how PC gamers have to get to the trilogy, they won’t be able to play their new games. Rockstar has also pulled the trilogy out of sale on PC, so if you don’t already own it, it’s not something you can buy at the moment.

“Rockstar Games Launcher services and supported titles are temporarily offline for maintenance,” the official Rockstar Support Twitter account Tweet yesterday. “Services will return once maintenance is complete.”

Rockstar Support Tweet an update 14 hours after that first tweet: Maintenance was still running and the player was still down. There has been no update since then at the time of writing.

Other than “maintenance” required, Rockstar hasn’t officially announced what’s wrong or what’s going on in the trilogy. Maybe something happened on the backend of the player or maybe something went wrong with the PC version code. We hope that Rockstar will update players on what happened when the game is back online (and available for purchase again).

While you wait, check out the full track list available in the trilogy and then read about how Rockstar removed a couple of cheats for technical reasons. Check out this story on how San Andreas developed the Oculus Quest 2 next.
