Last week, Rockstar Games launched Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for Switch and other platforms, where it has come under fire for a wide variety of issues, with gameplay bugs and strange looking graphics being hot topics of discussion online.
For those who may not be aware, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy was handled by Grove Street Games, the same studio responsible for helping Rockstar port the titles to mobile back in 2012. In a post on Twitter, Grove Street Games CEO Thomas Williamson acknowledged the criticism the Definitive Edition has received, confirming that updates are in the works, presumably to address some if not all of the highlighted issues.
As art ages, what was at the time a mistake becomes an homage, it becomes history. It's preservation is important. Han shoots first. One small step for man. Some mistakes should be rectified, and some should be preserved. Being on the deciding end is a heavy responsibility.

It’s so fun to see players out there really enjoying what we’ve put together for them. I’m honestly enjoying this unparalleled level of scrutiny on our studio. Today we are celebrating our monumental project launch, while we work on updates. 🙂

In the meantime, players who are encountering bugs can file a report via Rockstar’s support pages, or though when exactly a patch might arrive remains to be seen.
