The GTA Trilogy was supposed to unlock at 10AM ET worldwide, making it a simultaneous launch around the globe. As you can probably tell from our homepage, that didn’t go well: the game released in countries like New Zealand at midnight, meaning fans have been digging in for nearing 24 hours now.
Rather than just unlock these 20-year-old titles early for everyone, however, Rockstar has instead taken measures and removed the entire package for pre-order from the PS Store. If you were hoping to purchase the package and preload this morning, then you won’t be able to: there’s now just a clock counting down to the aforementioned time.
Fortunately, you won’t have to wait too long for Rockstar’s arbitrary launch window. In the meantime, you can check out a ton of gameplay footage through here, and also learn why not everyone’s overly enthusiastic about the quality of the ports.
