Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition physical versions have been moved from its original 7 December release date to a late December date, Rockstar Games recently confirmed. The physical versions of GTA The Trilogy were expected to hit PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch, but it looks like the Switch version has suffered the worst delay as it’s gotten pushed into 2022.
Recently posted to the developer’s official Twitter account, Rockstar has decided to delay the physical versions of GTA The Trilogy to 17 December 2021. PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S players will receive the games on this date, but Switch players will have to wait until early 2022 to get their hands on the bundle.
GTA The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been the center of controversy ever since its release in November, with numerous technical issues, bugs, glitches and poor visual uplifts in this supposed “remaster” criticised. Fans have pointed out a multitude of issues with the quality and efforts of the remastered package, including hazy rain effects obscuring vision, countless (and often hilarious) glitches, missing audio files, the removal of draw distance fog, missing radio songs, the infamous Hot Coffee files still being discovered in the coding – the list goes on.
However, Rockstar have since promised new updates and patches to try and fix many of the outlined issues with the bundle. Needless to say, it’s been a pretty divisive launch. While it still seemingly delivers on the nostalgia of three classic titles, the poor efforts to remaster each of them have been panned.
If you’re looking to grab GTA The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition when the physical versions launch in retail stores on 17 December 2021, we recommend proceeding with caution.
