Though it's still a buggy mess.

Last week, Rockstar games pulled Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition from PC. The games were first made inaccessible from purchase and play on the Rockstar Games Launcher after Rockstar took the servers down for "maintenance" on November 11. The severs continued to be down through November 12, which left those that purchased the game on PC unable to play the games they paid for.

It wasn't until later in the day on the 12th when Rockstar admitted that the games were being made inaccessible to paying customers due to the presence of extra files that were "unintentionally included" in the release. Some of these unintentionally included files include the presence of unlicensed music tracks and some unpacked developer code (completely with developer comments) that date back to the original releases of the games.

If these were the only issues surrounding the release of The Definitive Edition, this would almost seem like a non-story. Unfortunately, the games have all apparently released in a very poor state. This runs the gambit from opaque, vision-obscuring rain to missing assets to game crashes on all platforms to swimming slower in San Andreas at high framerates to physics glitches galore to just so very many more. Sure, the original releases weren't bug free either, but these releases are on a whole 'nother level.

There are tons of YouTube videos and compilations that have surfaced just in the past few days showing all sorts of bugs with these games. I've even included a one hour long compilation below to give you just some idea about the state of these ports. Of course, not every single thing depicted in the video below is necessarily a bug related to these specific releases (and some are repeated), but there are more than enough that are to get the point across.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition came out on November 11, 2021, just four days ago. It is priced at $60 (USD).
