In a recent blog post to their website, Rockstar Games apologized for the technical issues many players are encountering in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition.
"Firstly, we want to sincerely apologize to everyone who has encountered issues playing these games," the post begins. "The updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality or the standards our fans have come to expect."
The blog post also confirms that an update that aims to fix many of the issues players are experiencing will be released in the coming days, and that more updates and fixes are in the games' future.
"A new Title Update is on the way in the coming days for all versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition that will address a number of issues," Rockstar said. "With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be."
Rockstar also had a surprise for fans who miss the classic version of the games. The original versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas have returned to the Rockstar Store as a bundle for a limited time. Additionally, everyone who has purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition for PC will receive the classic versions of the games for free from the Rockstar Store.
"While one of the goals of the definitive Editions was to allow players to enjoy these games on modern platforms for many years to come, we also understand that some of you would still like to have the previous classic versions available for purchase," Rockstar said.
