Rockstar's GTA Trilogy Will Cost More Than You Think

Rockstar Games is revving its engine, as the long-rumoured Grand Theft Auto remastered trilogy is finally on the way. It came as no real surprise when Rockstar announced the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Bringing together the golden years of the franchise, you'll be able to play 2001's GTA III, 2002's Vice City, and 2004's San Andreas all over again. Although there will be plenty of bang for your buck, it turns out that buck could cost more than you think.

How much will the GTA trilogy cost?

According to sources, the Rockstar revamp won't be easy on the wallet. A listing on Base.com claims The Definitive Edition could cost $70/£70 on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. There's currently a sale on, meaning the trilogy is slightly less than that, but with Base being the first to open its doors to pre-orders, expect the $70/£70 to be pretty universal across the board.

The news has been met with a mixed reception. Namely, most think it's too expensive for what's pitched as a repackaging of legacy titles. Rockstar's official description promises "across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles", however, it's not like we're getting whole new versions of the games. 

If you're playing on last-gen consoles, you'll save a bit of money, but it'll still be $60/£60. The main grumble is that the games have previously popped up in digital download sales and is currently available for £16.99. Rockstar clearly knows what's it doing here, and gamers aren't impressed.

Is the GTA trilogy really that expensive?

It's a steep price tag, however, remember that most modern games are clocking in around the same ballpark. When Sony released the "Ultimate Edition" of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the current-gen title came bundled with 2018's original game and cost a hefty £80. 

Rockstar parent Take-Two has repeatedly defended higher-priced games. CEO Strauss Zelnick has championed a new era of game pricing. Last summer - when NBA 2K1 was announced as a $70 game - Zelnick said, "We think with the value we offer consumers…and the kind of experience you can really only have on these next-generation consoles, that the price is justified". 

Earlier this year, Zelnick said much of the same and added, "The last time there was a frontline price increase in the US was 2005, 2006, so we think consumers were ready for it." Rockstar seems to be setting the precedent for the industry, but we dread to think how expensive GTA 6 will be - whenever that releases.
