Rockstar Games has announced that it will be taking steps to improve the quality of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition starting with the first Title Update which will be released in the coming days.
In a new blog post, Rockstar says that “The updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect.” To this end, Rockstar will address the technical issues in the trilogy.
The hope is that with each update “the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be.”
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is a collection of remasters that includes Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. While these games have been updated with newer graphics, players have discovered multiple bugs and other noticeable graphical imperfections.
Bugs range from visual oddities to AI difficulties. One bug causes planes to keep crashing around the open world for no apparent reason.
It didn’t help that Rockstar de-listed the original versions of each of these games, making the Definitive Edition the only available way to play these titles. However, in the same blog post, Rockstar announced that the classic PC versions of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas will be available again on the Rockstar Store as a bundle. Anyone who purchased the Definitive Edition will receive the classic versions of these games for free.
