The release of GTA: Trilogy – Definitive Edition should have been a festive occasion for Rockstar fans, but it ended up giving rise to a lot of controversy about the quality of the re-releases. Unfortunately, the controversy still seems far from over, even more so now that the release of its physical versions has been delayed.
According to a tweet posted by the developer, “the release dates for the physical versions have changed: the Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will now be released on December 17th, while the Nintendo Switch version has been pushed back to the beginning of 2022”, in yet another bucket of cold water for the players, who hoped to have the editions in a box on the 7th.

We still don’t know if the Android and iOS ports were also impacted by these changes, but originally they were slated to come out in the first half of 2022. Seeing the glass half full, at least now the physical versions have a chance to include the newly released patch 1.03, which resolves many of the technical issues with the titles.
It remains to be seen whether there is still time to recover the credibility of the trilogy or not. Do you think Rockstar handled the GTA launch and issues well? Are you thinking of buying the physical edition? Let us know in the comments below!
