“Later this month marks a very special anniversary for Rockstar Games: 20 years since the original release of Grand Theft Auto III — the game that set players loose in the sprawling, three-dimensional metropolis of Liberty City with a new and unprecedented sense of freedom and immersion,” read a press release. “In addition to carving a new path for the open world genre, Grand Theft Auto III established Grand Theft Auto as a cultural phenomenon, alongside its two subsequent — and equally legendary — entries in the series, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”
Rockstar also revealed that because of the release of this new Grand Theft Auto bundle the company will begin removing existing versions of the classic titles from digital retailers next week.
Grand Theft Auto 3 was the highest-selling game of 2001 in the United States. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was the fastest-selling game in history at the time of its release. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was, once again, the top-selling game of 2004 in the United States.
Needless to say, gamers were very excited about Friday’s news from Rockstar, though some still were left with questions.
I can’t WAIT 2 b driving in my Infernus (Lambo) down the streets of Vice City while blasting Broken Wings by Mr. Mister or Working for the Weekend by Loverboy.
