Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on Valve’s Steam platform last week to a mixed response. Despite the three classic games having major issues that Rockstar have not addressed yet, it hit 8th place in the Steam charts last week. Despite only being on sale for four of the seven days and at a 50% discount, it was the 8th highest grossing game in terms of revenue as per SteamDB. GTA V did sell well too coming in 7th place last week. You can also see Red Dead Redemption 2 snuck into the charts as well.
How are the reviews and player counts?
The discount period ends on February 2nd and at full price it is a tough sell. At the time of writing, the all-time concurrent player count for Grand Theft Auto III clocks in at 774 followed by Vice City with 955. Meanwhile Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas takes the lead with 1699 players.
Surprisingly, the definitive edition of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has a Mostly Positive rating based on 416 reviews at the time of writing. However, both GTA III and Vice City have a mixed reception based on just under 300 reviews each. It will be interesting to track how this game does over the course of the next few weeks in terms of sales and player count.
As we’ve reported on, the GTA Trilogy TDE still needs fixes in various issues. It has been several months since the last patch that added bug fixes. The Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is playable on Steam Deck and is set to release on the Epic Games Store later this month. Will you be picking it up on Steam or the Epic Games Store during this discounted period? Let us know down in the comments. Stay tuned to RockstarINTEL for all news updates on Grand Theft Auto.
