Rockstar has delayed the physical versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition following the collection’s troubled digital launch this month.
But on Tuesday Rockstar announced that the Xbox and PS4 versions will now arrive later in December, while the Switch version has been pushed to 2022.
“The release dates for the physical versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition have changed,” the company said.
“Xbox Series X / Xbox One and PS4 will now release on December 17. The Nintendo Switch version is coming in early 2022.”
Earlier on Tuesday Rockstar released the second major GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition patch, fixing over 100 bugs.
The version 1.03 update addresses a number of issues across all three games, including spelling mistakes on signs and numerous instances where rain would appear indoors during cutscenes. It also adds cloud cover when flying at high altitudes in San Andreas.
The highly anticipated remaster collection released this month with a significant number of technical issues, as well as “unintended” documents within its game files such as unlicensed music and developer notes.
Rockstar subsequently apologised to fans for the state of the game and promised a series of updates to improve the title.
“The Grand Theft Auto series — and the games that make up this iconic trilogy — are as special to us as we know they are to fans around the world,” it said. “The updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect.”
Rockstar added: “We have ongoing plans to address the technical issues and to improve each game going forward. With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be.”
