A few days ago, Rockstar Games announced the much-awaited and highly rumoured Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition in a tweet posted onto the company’s Twitter account. However, there hasn’t been much information about the game since then. As the game comes close to release, we’re starting to receive more information about it.

Grand Theft Auto: Trilogy Definitive Edition Price
Now, the speculative cost of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition has been leaked by an online retailer based in the United Kingdom. Earlier today, we spotted a few listings for the upcoming game on base.com, which is an online entertainment retailer for music, movies and video games.
According to popular electronic store, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition will cost £59.99 or $59.99 for the previous-generation consoles and £69.99 or $69.99 for the current-generation consoles. However, Rockstar Games still hasn’t confirmed this pricing, so do take it with a grain of salt.
As for the pricing of the game on PC, we’re not certain but we can expect it to cost the same as the previous-generation console versions. Furthermore, it was also announced that the game would be released on iOS and Android devices in the first half of 2022. However, we’re not sure how much those versions of the game will cost either.
With the announcement of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition, Rockstar Games has finally decided to put an end to the original versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas by removing them from all digital storefronts, such as Steam.
£69.99 or $69.99 for a game is already very high, so we’re anxious to see what the company has done with the game to defend its decision for such expensive pricing. In August, Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox, told GamesRadar+ that “as players, we have to be open to the fact that creative teams need to see the financial benefit of what they create,” so the increase in pricing for games is certainly becoming more common for companies.
