Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy is So Bad That Rockstar Messed up Its Own Logo

Published 11/20/2021, 7:51 AM EST


The Grand Theft Auto: The Definitive Trilogy was something that was extensively looked forward to by the gaming community. The game aimed to remaster the 3 iconic GTA games. The game’s release was quite haphazard as the game was quite unfinished, buggy, and glitchy. And it seems like the game was so unfinished that Rockstar managed to mess up their logos in-game.

The fans of the series have had a turbulent experience with the release of the title. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was riddled with nightmarish character models, and the other two games had much more than their fair share of game-breaking bugs as well.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the Miami-inspired upscaled version of the game, could not escape the shackles of these issues either. It seems that the game is in such a bad state that Rockstar can’t seem to do basic stuff right.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City has a multitude of tourist spots. However, during a recent playthrough, a Reddit user found out another glaring issue in the game.

There is a pool in the shape of the Rockstar logo, located in the heart of the city. The pool, even in the original rendition of the game, featured the Rockstar games logo, and there wasn’t anything wrong with it. However, the new version’s minimap shows an inaccurate depiction of the same logo. The map showcased an incorrect Rockstar Games R alongside a six-pointed star.

While at first glance, there appears to be nothing wrong, upon a closer look, it can be seen that the Rockstar Games logo only has five points. This is a contradiction to the one shown in the game which features 6 points.


This is just one of the many problematic issues in The Grand Theft Auto: The Definitive trilogy. The game’s release was extremely poorly received, and coupled with the fact that the original versions of the game were pulled from stores, fans can not even return to the original to immerse themselves in nostalgia.

The title’s release was so poor that even Rockstar Games admitted that the game had a poor release, and everyone hopes they fix the game.
