What’s The Release Date?
If the information provided by BillbilKun proves to be accurate, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be launched on January 19 at 4PM UTC. The insider has further stated that in the first week of its release, the game will be available to be purchased at a discounted price of 50%.

What Are The Plans For a Steam Release?
After BillbilKun posted the aforementioned tweet, many fans were led to believe that the GTA Trilogy would release simultaneously on Steam and Epic Games Store. According to BillbilKun, the GTA Trilogy will “probably” release on Steam on January 19 but he does “not know” this for sure.
There is some ambiguity about it as Rockstar hasn’t shared any update or the slightest hint about GTA Trilogy’s release on Steam and Epic Games Store. It must be noted here that the Epic Games Store mostly opts for an exclusive release initially in a bid to monetize the game optimally. If it takes the same approach as the GTA Trilogy release, then one would have to wait for a while for it to be launched on Steam. Once the GTA Trilogy releases on the Epics Games Store, one hopes that Rockstar shares some updates about its Steam release.
