The popular gaming developers are having a rough week. They are facing immense criticism due to the recent activities and occurrences that are happening within their community. According to popular responses from the fans, there are three major issues at high alert regarding Rockstar Games.

The first one is the criticism for shorter Taxi cooldowns only with GTA+. The second is the decision to re-release the GTA Definitive trilogy without patching any of the bugs. And finally, major problems faced by the players in GTA online space where modders are ruining the game.

The new Taxi feature that they brought into the game really was disheartening for the fans. Especially because a fast travel option earlier was so limited and there were large demands for it for years. And now when it finally came, it’s time-bound and restricted to GTA +.

The Definitive Edition, which was infamous due to rampant bugs, was re-released on Steam with a huge discount. But, according to reports, they still are filled with bugs and Rockstar has not done anything to solve it.
