Netflix is adding the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition to its ever expanding, ever impressive roster of games just in time for the holiday need-a-20-minute-break-from-the-family season.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition (which we’re going to call the GTA Trilogy for simplicity’s sake) is a remaster of GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. Players can pre-register for the games starting today on iOS and Google Play. It will be available both in the Netflix mobile app and offered separately to Netflix subscribers in the App Store and Google Play.
Netflix can’t stop, won’t stop offering some of the biggest titles on its streaming service. We’ve got Kentucky Route Zero, Before Your Eyes, both Oxenfree games, Immortality, Spiritfarer, and Dead Cells. Next year will bring Katana Zero, Death’s Door, and Hades. It’s not the largest collection of games, but damn if it isn’t a well-curated one, especially since a lot of these games are being offered exclusively on mobile via a Netflix subscription.
Recent reports have suggested that Netflix games aren’t being played by a significant chunk of its users, and Netflix has never released any information on who’s playing what and what its most popular games are. But it seems like Netflix is banking success by offering commercially successful titles with big-time name recognition that run a gamut of tastes and experiences. The GTA Trilogy, a collection of games from one of the most popular franchises in video game history, seems like another great get for a service that’s had nothing but great gets in its two-year history.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition will be available for Netflix subscribers on iOS and Android and via the Netflix mobile app on December 14th.
