Yesterday Thursday (November 11, 2021) should actually be a reason to celebrate for GTA fans. After all, the go-ahead was given for the sale of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition on PC and consoles. However, a short time after the launch, great chaos broke out – at least for the PC group.
It all started with Rockstar Games announcing maintenance work on the servers responsible for the Rockstar launcher yesterday evening. This is not unusual in and of itself. A little later, the servers were actually offline – and have not yet been started up again. Typically, this type of maintenance does not take more than a few hours. It is now well over 18 hours.
Incidentally, this not only means that the player can neither start nor play the GTA Trilogy – Definitive Edition, which has just been purchased. At the same time, the PC versions of all other Rockstar games are also affected by the failure. Do you want to play Red Dead Redemption 2? Not currently possible on the PC … Fancy a round of GTA 5? Can you forget …
The developers have spoken on the official website and on Twitter and ask for your patience and understanding for the current problems.
“Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to work to restore service to the Rockstar Games Launcher and supported games.”

So far, it is impossible to predict how long it will take until the servers start up again and the Rockstar Launcher is ready for use again. So many PC gamers are still unable to launch any Rockstar title. Users on other platforms are also not entirely enthusiastic about the new versions. For example, there is a very popular Reddit post about Rockstar Games being “ashamed” of the GTA Trilogy. Our test is in progress. Last actual video: Official trailer
