The problematic release of GTA Trilogy a few days ago rubbed the community the wrong way. The issues of missing soundtracks, malfunctioning Rockstar Games, and more saw the studio rolling back the game. Despite the launcher being fixed and everything returning to normal, the studio hasn’t added GTA’s Deluxe Edition Trilogy back into the game.

The reason behind its continued absence might seem shocking to the community. But the thing is, the remastered version of the GTA Definitive edition contained explicit files, which were unintentionally added to the game.

GTA: Trilogy is still missing from Rockstar Games launcher

According to a report by VGC, certain unintended elements were left in the game files. These things included an adult ‘Hot Coffee’ mini-game that the original developers had created for San Andreas. Although, this mini-game never made it to the final product and was left out on the wayside, unfortunately, the game files of the remastered trilogy uncovered the existence of this mini-game, and this could’ve caused serious harm to the developers.

Hence, the studio was once again forced to roll back the title despite the issues with the launcher being resolved. The teams are currently working round the clock to figure out a way to remove this mini-game from the title completely.

GTA’s developer, Take-Two Interactive has already faced serious problems because of the mini-game. This turned the title into an adult-only product, which became a key reason for the studio to pull it from the sale. Developers then worked the entire sequence out of the game and released the title once again.

It seems like once again the studio is facing the exact same issue, and the issue must be resolved to avoid any legal problems. The studio has already taken a few corrective steps by removing all the soundtracks from GTA Vice City and San-Andreas, as the studio doesn’t have their licensing rights anymore.

What do you think about the release of the GTA: Trilogy and its subsequent developments?
