GTA On Netflix Is Seriously Confusing Fans

"Grand Theft Auto" is making its way to Netflix β€” and not in the way you might have expected. No, Rockstar hasn't finally decided to allow another company to make a "GTA" movie. Starting next month, the streaming service will be adding three hugely popular video games to its growing lineup of interactive entertainment: "Grand Theft Auto 3," "GTA: Vice City," and "GTA: San Andreas."Β

It should be noted, however, that the versions being added to Netflix aren't the original console games that fans know and love. Instead, Netflix will be making the remastered titles from 2021's controversial "Definitive Edition" available to subscribers. Though Netflix has made some big gaming moves in the last few years, these additions stand as some of the platform's most high-profile ports yet. According to Netflix's announcement, the remastered trilogy has received special care to make each entry ready for their mobile gaming debut. It couldn't have come at a better time, either, as "GTA" fever is in the air. With the trailer for "Grand Theft Auto 6" being revealed any day now, fans are going to be looking to revisit some of their favorite earlier entries in the franchise. Unfortunately for Netflix, the reaction to this "GTA" news thus far has been one of mild confusion.

Fans react to Netflix getting GTA

"Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition" is comprised of three infamous ports, which wowed fans in all the wrong ways back in 2021. The janky remasters were slammed for their various glitches and graphical issues, with the backlash being so great that Rockstar eventually reissued the original versions through the Rockstar Store as an apology. Many gamers who have already been burned by these versions of the games are less than enthusiastic about trying them on a new platform. Some, however, are already arguing that the new version is looking better than the 2021 release.

A large subsection of fans remain skeptical, however. Some have quipped that these remasters already looked like they were primed for a mobile release, while others have revealed that they're just now learning of the existence of Netflix Games. On that note, while some are confused about the how the game is supposed to work through the Netflix interface, others are anticipating this as being the most relaxing way to play "Grand Theft Auto."Β
