Grand Theft Auto is one of the most popular gaming series. Since the three original GTA games were released over a decade ago, they don’t meet the current standards anymore. Hence, Rockstar decided to launch a definitive edition of the iconic three games: GTA III, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas. The definitive edition of the trilogy was released last year for PC and major consoles. However, the mobile launch has been delayed multiple times. Earlier, it was speculated for an early 2022 release. And now the launch for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been pushed to the fiscal year 2023.
Rockstar needs more time to polish The Definitive Edition for mobile
When the news of these “Definitive Versions” first came out, fans got excited. They were eager to play their favorite games once again. However, the hopes shattered when the expectations didn’t meet. The initial review of the Definitive Edition has been subpar. It felt more of a forced game launch. Rockstar could have instead gone for a remake instead of a poor remastered version. I personally loved the work Hangar 13 did with Mafia: Definitive Edition. With that said, we can expect a similar issue with the mobile’s launch. Rockstar must have understood from the PC’s launch that their game needs more work before making it live for players.
Thanks to BusinessWire, we now have Take-Two’s future lineup. It suggests that the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be released in the fiscal year 2023. Moreover, it also states the game will come out for both Android and iOS operating systems. I guess it’s better if Rockstar takes their time rather than publishing an unpolished game. That being said, let us know your opinions on the definitive edition in the comments below.
