Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition’s Mobile Release delayed to Fiscal Year 2023

After its release on PC and consoles, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition was set to be released on Android and iOS devices as well. However, Take-Two’s fiscal reports revealed that the remastered versions of the games’ mobile release have been pushed back sometime in 2023.


In case you didn’t know, these “Definitive Versions” of the original Grand Theft Auto Trilogy, which are GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas, were remastered for current generation platforms, like PS5, PS4, and PC. And although the mobile release was a rumor at first, Rockstar eventually confirmed it.

This slight delay in release for mobile devices might be because of several reasons. Optimizing games and porting it to mobile does take time. Add to that, when the PC and console versions of the definitive edition came out, it had multiple issues and the developers were criticized due to how they handled the games.

There’s a possibility that they want to iron out the issues first throughout all platforms so that when the game finally launches for mobile devices, it will be well-received by critics and the public.

Also in the fiscal report of Take-Two, the management stated that, “Our pipeline for the year continues to look very strong, and we are excited to significantly expand our mobile presence with a best-in-class platform.”
