When Rockstar finally announced the remasters of the Grand Theft Auto III trilogy, they also confirmed the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy will be delisted from Steam and other console stores prior to the remasters’ release.
The news that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy will be delisted from Steam comes from Rockstar offering the new Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition releases only on their Rockstar Games Launcher.
As the name implies, the new collection includes the classic titles in the series: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Fans can expect the games to include “feature across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals.”
While the entire Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy and all three games have been available digitally on Steam, the classic games are sporadically available on game console digital stores. If you’re looking to buy the classic re-releases, you better grab them before next week – Rockstar notes they will be delisted on the “week of October 11,” so it remains unclear what day they’ll disappear.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is launching across Windows PC (via the Rockstar Games Launcher), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. A smartphone port on iOS and Android is also planned for 2022.
