GTA: The Trilogy The Definitive Edition Will Probably Hit Steam

Despite the fears of some players, GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition will probably go on sale on Steam. At least according to data found in the updated files of the Rockstar Games Launcher app.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Fans have found references to Steam for the games included in GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition in Rockstar Games Launcher files, which suggests that the collection will go on sale on Valve's service;
  2. Gamers feared otherwise, as the project's announcement only mentioned the Rockstar Games Launcher;
  3. It's unclear, however, whether or not the Steam version will be released later, as was the case with Red Dead Redemption 2.

We have good news for PC fans of GTA. There are many indications that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition will be available on Steam. A fan by the handle Tez2 has discovered that Rockstar Games has updated the launcher with elements identifying all three games included in the set in Valve's database. The titles have been designated as gta3unreal, gtavcunreal and gtasaunreal, as the refreshed versions of the trilogy are powered by Unreal Engine 4.

Fan concerns about the lack of a Steam version stemmed from the fact that when GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition was announced, "PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Rockstar Games Launcher for PC" were listed among the target platforms.. Promptly, the players feared that this meant that the PC edition would only be available through the devs' own service, especially since when announcing the PC version of RDR2, the developers immediately mentioned Steam, and in the case of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition they didn't.

Of course, in practice players will have to use the client anyway. The studio's games on Steam require logging into Rockstar Games Launcher. Despite this, many people prefer to have these productions on Valve's service.

A separate issue is whether Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition won't debut on Steam with some delay. In the case of Red Dead Redemption 2, the PC version was only available on Rockstar Games Launcher and Epic Games Store for a month.

In any case, report of GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition heading to Steam is positive news. Especially since, in preparation for the collection's release, Rockstar Games began pulling the original versions of the games from distribution. It is worth adding that people who bought these games earlier will still be able to download them.
