Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition Now Available from Rockstar GamesRockstar Games®, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce that the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is now available digitally for the PlayStation® 5 computer entertainment system, Xbox Series X|S games and entertainment system, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation® 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Rockstar Games Launcher. Available through the PlayStation Store, the Microsoft Store on Xbox, Nintendo eShop, and the Rockstar Games Launcher, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will also release physically for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on December 7, 2021.

“The response and impact we felt from the original Grand Theft Auto Trilogy was – and still is – truly humbling for us all,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We are so grateful to all the players, and we cannot wait for everyone to play these new versions.”

Celebrating this year’s 20th Anniversary of the launch of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition comprises of the genre-defining titles Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, bringing the iconic locations of Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas to the latest platforms with across-the-board enhancements such as GTAV-inspired modern controls; graphical and environmental upgrades, including higher resolution textures; enhanced lighting and weather; and more. All three games included in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition also feature platform-specific enhancement, including Gyro aiming and touch screen camera zooming, pans and menu selections on the Nintendo Switch, 4K-resolution support with up to 60 FPS performance for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X systems, and NVIDIA DLSS support for PC.

Originally developed by Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been adapted to modern platforms by Grove Street Games using the Unreal Engine to make these classics more vibrant and more immersive than ever, honoring the experience of the original titles, while enhancing them for a whole new generation of players.

Launching in October 2001, Grand Theft Auto III first pioneered Rockstar Games’ approach to building highly immersive and detailed, fully 3D open worlds, delivering unprecedented freedom and nonlinear gameplay combined with rich, cinematic storytelling, and earning the series critical and commercial success. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City refined this approach, delivering heightened levels of immersion, detail, and humor, as it took players back to the 1980s and into a neon-soaked tropical town brimming with excess through the story of Tommy Vercetti and his quest for revenge. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas elevated these concepts even further with the introduction of three distinct cities and surrounding areas as well as a host of new features as Carl ‘CJ’ Johnson battles the streets and corrupt cops to save his family in a loving homage to the 1990s. Each title in the series set a new standard for the open world genre, and helped to redefine the possibilities of interactive entertainment with each release.

GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
