Rockstar Games Remain Offline

Yesterday's launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been a bit of disaster. A tweet from Rockstar Support acknowledges that the services for the Rockstar Games Launcher and supported titles "are temporarily offline for maintenance." That was yesterday afternoon, but that temporary outage persists. This doesn't just prevent players from playing the newly released remakes, but other Rockstar Games as well. As of this time, the new GTA Trilogy bundle is no longer for sale for Windows on the Rockstar Store. A tweet from the wee hours this morning says work at getting things restored continues, thanking players for their patience and understanding. At this point there's no explanation of what is causing the problem.

Rather would have Red Dead Redemption with the RDR2 engine on PC.

Meanwhile people who downloaded the copy from "less reputable sources" are happily playing away.

To an extent, however it hasn't been officially cracked (ie. the .exes are still encrypted) and the way they did it is causing problems of its own.

It has been cracked since yesterday and word is it's working perfectly.

But surely the single-player game is no fun being played without online authentication? Right, guys? No forced online = game no fun? Right? Rockstar knows this. They care about gamers.

Screw this. I've invested definitely tens of thousand of $$$ or €€€ in games and hardware over the last decades. But with the plague of mining and games becoming service games, I think it is time to leave that behind me. I got a looong backlog of old games that are hopefully playable with a current OS and 2020s hardware. And they can be played OFFLINE.

We at Rockstar love you, fans. And now we won't let you download the game you bought. And NOW we won't even let you buy the game anymore.
Rockstar Games Service. Where single-player games are played as they are meant to be played: with online authentication at least every 24 hours.
True love.

I want cd-keys back. Or code wheels. Or "insert tape and press play". Or "put cartridge into the Atari 2600 and play".

I am old. I have seen better times. Not only but also for gamers when it comes to how easily games could be played.
