Rockstar's weak apology for the trash trilogy release
 

 
image"

Hi everyone,

We want to provide an update regarding the unexpected technical issues that came to light as part of the launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

Firstly, we want to sincerely apologize to everyone who has encountered issues playing these games.

The Grand Theft Auto series — and the games that make up this iconic trilogy — are as special to us as we know they are to fans around the world. The updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect.

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."

No love for those that purchased on consoles and PC purchasers only get a temporary way to play the OGs:

"While one of the goals of the Definitive Editions was to allow players to enjoy these games on modern platforms for many years to come, we also understand that some of you would still like to have the previous classic versions available for purchase.

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."

Weak...

Not sure why players thought the game was going to be completely re-worked from the ground up on new engines.
y'all knew what a re-mastered/re-release was as it's plenty of titles to prove that rarely (if at all) does a game get a complete remake from the ground up.
Y'all disappointment about this seem to be illogical and expected a remake of classics on new frost engines or something.

lol, wild to me.

It's not about it being a rework or not. They basically just ported the mobile version of the games with the same bugs and all(and used the same company to do it) and called it a remaster and slapped the price tag on it.

If you can't see that this was just a lazy, no effort cash grab attempt by a company who USED to be GOAT status and now are rapidly becoming a joke then I don't know what to tell you.

Hell the 'apology' makes it sound like they didn't even play it or test it themselves after letting their port partner do this bullsh*t

I hear you; however, as a RE fan, I've never experienced anything even remotely as fu*ked up as this is. ... not with any of GC remasters (not the remakes) they've released.

I feel you.
just to me it seems like high hopes to expect these companies not to milk the cash cow.
I'm a big GTA fan, but I ain't gonna give them a free 39.99 or better for a game I know won't be sh*t but a re-release on a different console. these companies don't really give a fu*k about us the players, just our wallets. and if they can cut corner, not all will but majority of gaming companies will cut them.

since you bought it up, and I'm curious;
How's the Resident Evil remakes? them joints official tissue? or like these wack a*s rockstar hustles?

They didn't get sh*t from me (yet)! Playing San Andreas on Gamepass and will probably cave when it goes on sale.

Resident Evil remakes:

Capcom nailed it visually and there are a ton of QOL improvements. Only downsides - they're shorter than the originals and some content was cut.

Both were day one buys and totally worth it IMO.

if you being frfr, I really wanna see RE2 set design,
I'll never forget on PS2 how dope the fu*king RE2 backgrounds looked, I don't know the name of the style (cell shading?) but that sh*t was one of the dopest background/scenery titles I've played.

Not sure what that question has to do with what I said,
as what you asked would easily and automatically be folded into my post you quoted.

It is kind of a remake because they had to rewrite alot of code to work with the unreal engine

actually the problem is they reworked the entire game from the ground up on new engines



the original gta's were developed in renderware and these remasters are in unreal engine 4

the issue is these are mobile games made by a terrible mobile dev not rockstar

Thought gamers was savvy enough at this point to know remaster means you increase the resolution, make it playable on modern systems, and maybe add whatever easy post processing effects you can and then just toss it out.

A REMAKE is when its from the ground up.

I guess I was wrong, gamers still dumb as fu*k



An actual REMAKE like say .... Final Fantasy 7 remake takes FOREVER since you're building a new game from the ground up and need a whole studio working on it. A remaster you outsorce to some little a*s team to do grunt work and push it out quick.

Did they think a FULLY redone from the ground up version of THREE HUGE GAMES was coming out like a week after the announced it ?!?!!
