In a tweet dated February 4, 2023, an insider suggested that four million players have played the new mission First Dose 1, which begins with the Drug Wars story.

When it comes to Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, insider Ben said that it is still in development for mobile devices such as Android and iOS. However, there is no confirmed release date for now. This is a big relief for anyone who wants to play the game on their smartphone.
Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on Steam on January 19, 2023. The company also announced that the edition will arrive on the Epic Games Store (EGS) later in the month. However, it is now February, and there is still no sign of the package on the EGS platform.
