There are multiple issues being reported with the launch of GTA Trilogy: The Definite Edition since 11th Nov 2021. Rockstar published the super hyped GTA Trilogy after the requests of fans. However, the release has not been received well by the fans as the gamers are facing multiple issues from gameplays to downloads.
The major issue is that Rockstar has unpublished the Trilogy from PC. This means that PC gamers won’t be able to download the game till Rockstar publishes the game again. The reason they gave for unpublishing is related to some files that are unintentionally left in the game files.
The Rockstar Games Launcher is now online, but GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is unavailable to play or purchase as we remove files unintentionally included in these versions. We're sorry for the disruption and hope to have correct ones up soon. https://t.co/NiMNXUKCVh

A journalist on Twitter gave a hint to what these files may be. He says that these files are the music ones that Rockstar aren’t able to provide in the game due to copyright issues.
The unintentional data isn't Hot Coffee. It looks to be that licensed music tracks which they no longer have the rights to use weren't properly removed and were found in the game files. Potential big headache for Rockstar.

As the game is down for two days to be downloaded on PC, many are asking for refunds on Twitter.
I'd like my money back please

This comes after the downtime of Rockstar servers that were down for a whopping 29 hours after the initial release. People weren’t able to play any Rockstar game through the Rockstar launcher due to this issue. While this issue is fixed, some issues related to the Trilogy are still haunting Rockstar. People are complaining about the bugs in the game while some are calling the Remaster poor work.
There are mixed opinions on social media whether it be Facebook, Twitter or Youtube. Some are calling this inferior to the already available mods while some are applauding with the reason that this is just a Remaster and not a remake. The game, however, does have some problems including glitches, cutscenes and corrupting saved data.
