Rockstar Games has announced that it will improve the quality of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, starting with the first title update that will be released in the coming days.
In a new one blog entrySays Rockstar, “The updated versions of these classic games were not released in a state that met our own quality standards or the standards our fans have come to expect.” To that end, Rockstar will address the technical issues in the trilogy.
The hope is that “with every update the games reach the quality level they deserve”.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is a collection of remasters that includes Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. While these games were updated with newer graphics, players have discovered several bugs and other noticeable graphics bugs.
The errors range from visual oddities to AI difficulties. A bug causes planes to crash for no apparent reason in the open world.
It didn’t help that Rockstar removed the original versions of each of these games from the list, making the Definitive Edition the only available way to play those titles. In the same blog post, however, Rockstar announced that the classic PC versions of GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas will be available again as a bundle in the Rockstar Store. Everyone who has purchased the Definitive Edition will receive the classic versions of these games for free.
