The PC Version Of Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Definitive Edition Has Been Offline For A Full Day

Around 24 hours ago, Rockstar Games pulled the PC version of its just-released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition with little explanation or ETA on when it would return.

As Kotaku reports, the page on Rockstar’s own website that directs consumers to buy the game no longer mentions the PC version, and the Rockstar Launcher required to access the game for anyone who’s purchased it already has gone completely offline.

Currently, anyone who’s signed into the Rockstar Launcher previously and installed the trilogy is able to play in offline mode, but those who are yet to purchase or have bought the game but not installed it are seemingly out of lock – as is anybody hoping to play Grand Theft Auto V or Red Dead Redemption 2 online.

Coincidentally, or perhaps not, dataminers have subsequently investigated the PC installations of the game and found files that likely weren’t meant to be found including developer notes and files from music that had been ‘cut’ from the game:

It’s unclear at this stage whether Rockstar has pulled the game to remove the offending files, or if they’re having genuine issues with the launcher, but we’ll endeavour to update this story when things return to normal.
