GTA Trilogy Cheats Removed by Rockstar Games

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition offers newcomers the chance to check out three of the most beloved video games of all-time, but the trio did not come to modern platforms without some changes. One such change is the removal of multiple cheats that were offered in the original versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. In an interview with USA Today, producer Rich Rosado confirmed that some cheats were cut from the collection, but did not offer specifics on which ones were removed. Apparently, this came about as a result of technical issues.

“We actually had to remove a couple for technical reasons, certain things that didn’t play well in the Unreal base,” Rosado told USA Today. “But that’s actually where I’ll leave it. There’s some fun with discovery. I’m not saying plus or minus, but I’d rather not just go right on the nose before the release of the game and go straight to the end credits.”

Since Rosado hasn’t confirmed exactly which cheats have been cut, players will just have to find out by playing the compilation for themselves! Some players are bound to be disappointed by these omissions, but it seems like a lot of fans aren’t too please with GTA: The Trilogy in general. Since the compilation released last week, players have shared a number of screenshots and videos online showcasing bugs and technical issues. It seems like players are not too happy with how the compilation was handled, and that extends far beyond some cheat omissions. Hopefully, Rockstar Games is paying attention to these issues, and will find ways to offer patches to make for a better overall experience.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here.
