Netflix is adding Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition to its list of mobile games, a marquee addition that takes their roster of titles to over 80. Subscribers will soon get to enjoy the trio of Rockstar Games’ hit titles of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
This adds to a December that fans of the series have been already looking forward to, with the hotly-anticipated debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 right around the corner.
Starting today, players can pre-register for the games on iOS and Google Play, available both in the Netflix mobile app and offered separately to Netflix subscribers in the App Store and Google Play.
This news confirms its licensing deal with developer Take-Two Interactive, with the first move being a re-release of these iconic GTA titles. This bolsters Netflix’s already impressive repertoire of mobile games, including Kentucky Route Zero, Before Your Eyes, both Oxenfree games, Immortality, Spiritfarer, and Dead Cells. 2024 will also introduce Katana Zero, Death’s Door, and Hades – most of which are offered as exclusives.
Despite recent reports that only a small percentage of its users are playing Netflix games, this only proves that the media company is doubling down by adding one of the most popular franchises in video game history to its arsenal. Only time will tell if it pays off.
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 14 December.
