With a digital debut that didn’t satisfy fans or specialized critics, Grandt Theft Auto The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition forced Rockstar Games to publicly apologize for the release’s shortcomings.
With software house working to improve the production condition through post-launch support, November had seen the announcement of the post-launch of the retail edition of GTA The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition. Following this decision, the debut of the re-editions of GTA III, GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City had been relocated to December 17, 2021 for PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
However, it seems that the negative reviews related to Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition have ended up compromising the launch of the retail edition. The weekly sales data for Britain see the GTA The Trilogy out of the Top 40 of the best-selling games. In the week of the debut, the collection had reached the eighth position, and then moved to the 23rd step the following week. Now, just two weeks away from Day One, there doesn’t seem to be room in the UK market for the return to stage of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
At the moment, the new launch date for the Nintendo Switch version of GTA The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition has not yet been announced by Rockstar Games.
