Netflix Games is making moves, and it seems they have caught the biggest fish in the sea: Rockstar Games. The online streamer has announced that the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be available to all Netflix members for no extra cost on December 14, 2023.

The trilogy pack includes ‘Definitive Editions’ of three popular GTA games: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Netflix subscribers can pre-register for the games today and play them as soon as they are available.

The Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition had a rocky launch when it was released back in November of 2021. With many bugs, unoptimized performance, and plenty of texture issues, the game was panned by critics and fans alike. Since then, developers Rockstar Games have released several patches that addresses most of the issues and have made the game largely playable.

Of course, the game was released for PC and next-gen consoles, and running it on mobile devices is another ball game entirely, so we will have to wait and see how that fairs. At the first time of writing, the Opencritic score for the game sits at 54%, with IGN calling it a “defective, disappointing, and surprisingly disrespectful to three classic games and their many legions of fans.”

The addition of the GTA games brings the Netflix library to over 80 titles and is available for free on Android and iOS devices to all subscribers.

GTA fans have more to look forward to next month, as well. Rockstar has announced that – after several leaks and rumours – they will finally be announcing and showcasing Grand Theft Auto 6, the next instalment in the wildly popular and multi-billion dollar selling video game franchise.

There is no concrete date for the announcement yet, but it showing up on The Game Awards, which streams live on December 7, seems most likely.
