Rockstar Games has officially apologized for the disastrous launch and disappointing quality of its new Grand Theft Auto “remasters.” According to a new blog post, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition did not meet the company’s usual standard of quality and will be receiving updates to address outstanding issues, the first of which will arrive “in the coming days.” The classic PC versions of GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas will also be returning to the Rockstar Store.

From Rockstar:

We have ongoing plans to address the technical issues and to improve each game going forward. With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be.

A new Title Update is on the way in the coming days for all versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition that will address a number of issues. We will update everyone as soon as it is live. […]

We will be adding the classic PC versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas back to the Rockstar Store shortly as a bundle. Additionally, everyone who has purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PC from the Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022, will receive these classic versions in their Rockstar Games Launcher library at no additional cost. We will update everyone as soon as these are back in the Rockstar Store.

Rockstar Games also told disgruntled owners of GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition to stop harassing its employees on social media. “We would kindly ask our community to please maintain a respectful and civil discourse around this release as we work through these issues,” it said.
