Rockstar Removed GTA Trilogy From Sales

Rockstar has discontinued the PC version of the remaster of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition.

Previously this week, the updated versions of three GTA games from the 2000s were released and received tons of negative feedback from the players. The graphics look pretty weird and the titles have a lot of bugs, much more than it was in the classic versions of the games. Players share videos with hilarious moments, strange animations, different bugs, and so forth. Despite the games having quite high technical specifications, none of them performs at the level of the modern title.

Then, Rockstar removed the remasters from their store. The reason for the removal is compilation files that were included in the release. Nevertheless, it’s pretty unclear what does it mean. Furthermore, the Trilogy is still available for the owners of consoles.

The new remaster of the classic GTA titles received predominantly negative reviews. For today, there are almost 3000 reviews and only 7 users rated the games positively. 2 players left a mixed response. Fans criticize the cost of the remaster, graphics, lack of original music, character models, and more. The remasters have a score of 0.5 out of 10 on Metacritic.

A score of 0.5 is one of the worst scores among games on the Metacritic site, but some games are even worse. For example, the Madden NFL 21 sports simulator is rated 0.2 out of 10. One of the worst-rated games in terms of user reviews is WarCraft III: Reforged, which received a 0.6 rating based on over 30,000 reviews. However, the game has achieved such a result in almost two years since its release in January 2020. The remasters of the GTA trilogy managed to achieve an anti-record in 4 days since the release on November 11.

Those who tried the games on consoles recommend the titles only for the biggest fans of the franchise. 

There are still no official comments from Rockstar related to the removal of new GTA titles. Earlier, a version appeared on the network that the disconnection of GTA: The Trilogy from the Rockstar launcher was due to musical compositions for which the developers had expired the license. According to another theory, it is all about the uncompiled version of the main.scm file, which contains cut content and notes from Rockstar North employees during the development of the original series. Presumably, Rockstar decided to remove this part of the code in order to keep the development process of their games a secret.
