Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is a compilation of three remastered games from the Grand Theft Auto series including Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The games were released on PC via Rockstar Games Launcher and consoles on November 11, 2021. However the PC version was pulled hours later, preventing owners from installing or playing it,[1] after data miners discovered uncompiled source code[2] and music from the original version that was cut in this remaster.[3][4]
