Additionally, if you’d prefer to increase your GTA Online wallet or Red Dead Redemption 2 currency, you can choose from either a Great White Shark card or 55 gold bars.

Originally Rockstar Games promised to add the untouched, classic version of the trilogy onto the Rockstar Launcher.  This is still the case and players can still receive them, if they’ve already purchased the Definitive Edition remasters: “Everyone who has purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PC from the Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022, will receive these classic versions in their Rockstar Games Launcher library at no additional cost.”

In a statement from the developers, they offered an apology for the underwhelming state of affairs: “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.”

As the developers continue to improve the remastered trilogy, players are still waiting for any news of a new GTA game, a potential GTA 6.
