Activity on SteamDB suggests that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition might be receiving an update soon. Some suggest that this update will likely include the improvements that were recently added to the mobile version of Grand Theft Auto‘s trilogy of classic titles.
GTA: The Trilogy released on mobile in December, and fans were relieved when its launch went much smoother than the trilogy’s 2021 release on consoles and PC. The trilogy’s mobile release introduced visual improvements like a new lighting mode, which aimed to recreate the look of the original games. Now that mobile users can enjoy solid renditions of the classic GTA titles, users of other platforms have hoped for similar improvements, and it looks like these fans might be getting some soon.
Xbox Game Pass Confirms When Grand Theft Auto 5 is Leaving
Unfortunately for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, time is running out for them to play Rockstar’s open world epic Grand Theft Auto 5.
videotechuk_ revealed that GTA: The Trilogy has had activity on SteamDB recently, indicating that its developers are preparing a new patch. He believes that the patch likely contains the improvements and fixes seen in the recent mobile release. Users of this version reported that the GTA games looked significantly better than the trilogy’s 2021 release, and it seems plausible that if this can be achieved on mobile devices, then it can on PC. If true, this update would likely be released for consoles as well. A release date for this potential patch is not known yet.
GTA: The Trilogy contains remastered versions of Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. All three titles are at least nineteen years old now, so it was fitting for them to receive re-releases in 2021. However, GTA: The Trilogy‘s initial launch was widely criticized by fans due to a wide range of bugs and underwhelming graphics. Initially, GTA‘s fan base saw the trilogy as more of a cash grab than an effort to honor the original games. But despite this, the trilogy sold impressively well.
The CEO of Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive, revealed that GTA: The Trilogy sold over ten million copies after its release and exceeded the company’s expectations. Thankfully for Grand Theft Auto fans, Rockstar’s treatment of GTA: The Trilogy seems to be on an upswing, which might help to build even more hype for Grand Theft Auto 6.
The next GTA game doesn’t have a release date yet, but fans have done their best to predict when Grand Theft Auto 6 will drop. Rockstar confirmed that it will release sometime in 2025, and history suggests that it may release in September or October. However, this is just speculation, and GTA 6 could come out at any point in 2025.
