Rockstar Games' remastered compilation Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition marks the return of PlayStation 2 titles Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The Grove Street Games-developed remaster for Windows, PlayStation and Xbox platforms received a patch earlier this month, addressing performance, camera, and user interface issues. The physical edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Series X|S launched on December 17th, followed by mobile ports for iOS and Android.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of GTA III, PlayStation's Spotify account has posted three playlists composed of licensed music from the PS2 trilogy. Grand Theft Auto III features Debbie Harry’s 1983 single "Rush Rush," "Stripe Summer" by Dil Don’t, and "Grand Theft Auto" by Da Shootaz. Vice City's selections lean into a breezy ‘80s vibe, while San Andreas covers assorted genres, from hip hop to country.

Meanwhile, Rockstar has uploaded a separate Spotify playlist, collecting 32 assorted tracks from the latest Grand Theft Auto Online story. "The Contract" invites players to partner with Franklin Clinton and his crew, as they build the portfolio of their ‘celebrity solutions agency.’ The expansion showcases six exclusive songs by record producer Dr. Dre, including a collaboration with rapper Enimem.

Rockstar's VR port of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for Oculus Quest 2 was announced at Facebook Connect 2021.
