Are you ready to step back into the criminal underworld of the early 2000s? Because it looks like GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition will finally release on more storefronts. According to reliable leaker Billbilkun on Twitter, the game will be launching on the Epic Games Store on 19 January 2023 at 4 PM GMT, and, as a cherry on top, it will be marked down by a whopping 50% for the first week of release!
I know, you're probably thinking, "But wait, this hasn't been officially confirmed by Rockstar Games yet!" And you're right; it hasn't. However, Billbilkun has a history of accurately leaking information, particularly the monthly PlayStation Plus games lineup for over a year. This lends a lot of credibility to their claim that the GTA Trilogy will launch on the Epic Games Store next week.
The GTA Trilogy includes updated versions of Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, all of which have been remastered for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S next-gen consoles. Of course, The Definitive Edition is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. And in case you missed it, another leaker videotech_ dropped a hint last month that the game could also be coming to Steam.
The Grand Theft Auto series has been highly acclaimed by critics and gamers alike, with the latest entries in the series Grand Theft Auto V receiving widespread applause and commercial success. While GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition attracted harsh criticism at launch in November 2021, many bugs and visual issues were resolved through subsequent patch updates.
So, mark the date 19 January at 4 PM GMT in your calendars, set a reminder, tie a string around your finger, or do whatever you have to do not to forget. And don't forget to take advantage of that sweet, sweet 50% discount during the first week of release.
