Rockstar Games has restored the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition to its online store. The game was pulled and taken offline for three days following massive bug reports and the inclusion of “unintentional” files.

The remastered GTA trilogy had a rocky launch last week. Following numerous posts on social media, ridiculing the game’s look and performance, data miners found a set of unlicensed music files, developer comments, and the controversial ‘Hot Coffee’ minigame within the code.

Upon being notified, Rockstar was quick to disable their PC client – Rockstar Games Launcher for maintenance and even pulled the entire game from its storefront. The servers did come back online after 24 hours, albeit players who previously bought the game had been unable to launch it since.

Earlier today, Rockstar announced in a tweet that the trilogy was back on PC. “We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and are working to improve and update overall performance as we move forward.”, it reads. As for whether these overhauls apply to console versions as well, only time will tell. The embarrassing launch has also forced Rockstar to personally ask for email confirmations from players applying for a refund, as you can see in the tweet below.

Published by Rockstar Games, ‘Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition’ is a revamped collection of their classic titles – GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas. The games feature various graphical overhauls for a new generation such as lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, and optimized controls and targeting akin to Grand Theft Auto V.
