GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition Still Unavailable on PC

The Rockstar Support Twitter remains surprisingly silent in light of how Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition remains unavailable to play or purchase for PC gamers. This is three days after it was "temporarily" taken offline for maintenance, which has reportedly been met with patience and understanding. There is a little more to know about the failed launch of the remastered RPG anthology though. Amid rising customer dissatisfaction, VG247 reports that demands for refunds are rolling in. Similarly, VGC notes that the review bombing has begun in earnest, and the game's user score on Metacritic is currently 0.6, just barely edging out John Blutarsky's GPA. And since when it rains, it pours, a report on Kotaku notes that Take-Two occupied some of its time during the game's launch to send out additional DMCA notices to remove more GTA mods and fan projects. Here's an interview with some GTA modders who no longer seem interested in doing unpaid work for the benefit of Rockstar and Take-Two with all that's gone on.

I mean, this is what happens when you outsource your biggest franchise to a mobile developer whose best previous game was rated 1/5 stars on the Google Play store....

Jesus. Rockstar would have been FAR better off trying to buy the fan based remakes. Most were near completion, and ALL were better than their efforts. Too proud to do so, too inept to do anything close in quality.

This is below embarrassing.

Everyday life here in Mordor is like a medieval GTA port with lifelike models, full ray-tracing, and real-time special effects (and lifelike bodily fluids). With fun like this just down the street, who needs Rockstar? Cthulhu

Just messing. This looks like a very badly missed opportunity to bring older GTA games to Switch, honestly.

pussing off modders rarely works for games like these. They should be supporting them.
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Rockstar is going the way of Bethesda and absolutely murdering their reputation with their fans. They've rediscovered 'foxing' after twenty years, and they're coming close to discovering that if you fanbase hates you, they won't support you.

people proved they will buy unfinished, broken shit that barely works at a huge volume

thats why im happy im still a pirate, like i always was

And you should be happy that people still buy games. Because without the money they are paying, you would have nothing to steal "pirate".

What a half assed job of a Definitive Edition. R*'s apology and redress tour is going to be interesting to watch.
My own cynical R* take: If it doesn't have shark cards or some other recurring currency it's not worth the effort to get right. Push it out the door 'cause people are used to throwing money at us.

When R* closed down modders they really did do it to eliminate competition.

Maybe they should have leaked a trailer similar to the "remaster" of Crysis.

I regret my purchase. My sense of nostalgia gets the better of me and I actually think these developers care as much as the fans do. I should have learned my lesson with Warcraft 3 Reforged.

After Blizzard's debacles with both of its recent remasters, I guess this is Rockstar's "hold my beer" moment. It's pretty incredible that these multi-million dollar companies can fuck up upgrades on old games they originally produced 15-20 years ago.

Ok, just take other peoples work and give them nothing.

The fact they pulled the original GTA 3, San Andreas and Vice City from all the digital stores when they released this is disgusting.

It's in response to a thief who said he steals games.
He also appears to be the reincarnation of Harlock who was also...
