‘GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition’ physical copies PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch to arrive first in December
Rockstar Games recently confirmed the existence of “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.” Subsequent reports may have revealed a specific release date, but the developer might be planning a staggered launch for the remasters’ physical copies.
In Rockstar’s announcement last week, the studio said “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” will come to PC and consoles later this year. The collection of remastered games will be available on Android and iOS as well, but not until next year.
The developer did not mention if the bundle would be available in both physical and digital versions. But Polish publication PPE (via VGC) reported that European retailers had received details about the “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” launch, suggesting the bundle will be released in boxed copies that may have different release dates.
Rockstar reportedly plans on releasing physical copies of “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” five platforms. But the versions for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch would launch first on Dec. 7, while the versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are slated to arrive in 2022.
The report did not mention if there is no boxed copy planned on PC. But a digital-only launch would make sense as Rockstar already said PC gamers would have to get “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” through the Rockstar Games Launcher.
The reported release date for the “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” physical version is different from the release date tipped by Tom Henderson. The reliable leaker said the remasters are planned to launch on Nov. 11. Rockstar may be planning a staggered launch for different copies of the bundle. But with conflicting dates provided by these sources, fans should take these reports with a grain of salt.
Meanwhile, many fans are wary of how Rockstar announced “GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.” The announcement did not have pertinent details about the upgrades, while Rockstar also confirmed that the original version of the games in the collection would be removed from digital stores this week. As of this writing, though, fans can still purchase the original “GTA: The Trilogy” on Steam, as well as the standalone original versions of “GTA III,” “GTA: San Andreas,” and “GTA: Vice City.”
