Physical versions GTA Trilogy delayed as patching continues

Rockstar has decided to put the launch of a physical GTA Trilogy on hold. With the studio under heavy fire after a disastrous launch of the digital version, a choice to fix things first isn’t such a terrible idea.

If you haven’t got a clue what I’m referring to, welcome to the year 2021. COVID is still a thing and developers can’t seem to deliver a finished game anymore. Even Rockstar – the wonderboy of the industry – cocked it up for once. Remember those good old “All we had to do was follow the damn train, C.J.!” days? Well, those good old days have recently been overhauled, but Rockstar forgot that a remaster usually needs to be a major improvement.

In the case of the GTA Trilogy, disaster struck. Messed up rain effects, botched spelling… the whole enchilada. Rockstar has been working on fixes ever since people started to complain their asses off. Because if Rockstar won’t fix it, modders will. And that was something Rockstar wasn’t a big fan of. But this crunch time has another drawback, and that comes in the form of a delay.

On the bright side, the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition has gotten a big patch to improve stuff. According to Rockstar, over 100 bugs have been squashed. Version 1.03 should have taken care of those nasty spelling errors and rain issues. Good job, Rockstar! Maybe this remaster won’t turn out to be a total dumpster fire after all.
