Netflix announced on November 29 through a post on X that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be added to the Netflix Games library on December 14. At the moment, Netflix Games are mainly accessible through Netflix mobile app which can be downloaded on the App Store or Google Play Store.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition contains GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas from the Grand Theft Auto Series. The announcement is a confirmation of a Wall Street Journal report last month and means the mobile experience of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will only be available to Netflix subscribers.

“Experience the genre-defining classic, updated for a new generation with across-the-board enhancements including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, with high-resolution textures, increased draw distance, Grand Theft Auto V-style controls and targeting, and much more,” read the game description on App Store.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was launched on consoles and PC in November 2021. The launch of the collection on mobile means that the game is now available across all gaming platforms.

On Nintendo Switch, the collection has been discounted from $59.99 to $29.99. The discount will last until December 5. However, Netflix subscribers will have access to the collection for free on mobile.

“Welcome to the 1980s,” read the description on the App Store. “From the decade of big hair and pastel suits comes the story of one man’s rise to the top of the criminal pile. Grand Theft Auto returns with Tommy Vercetti’s tale of betrayal and revenge in a neon-soaked tropical town full of excess and brimming with possibilities.”

Specs of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition

On iPhone and iPad, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will gulp 2.8 GB, GTA: San Andreas is the largest of the three games with a size of 2.9 GB, while GTA III will require 1.7 GB. In total, that’s about 7.4 GB. All the games will require iOS/iPadOS 16.0 or later to run. Also, the device must have the A12 Bionic chip or later.

According to the WSJ report, Netflix is planning to license major third-party properties to complement its growing third-party games catalog, a strategy that has worked for the streaming giant in the movie niche.

It was also claimed that Netflix is planning to transform its hit movies and series including Squid Game and Wednesday into mobile games. Other Netflix series that are being considered for transformation into mobile games include Extraction, Sherlock Holmes, and Black Mirror.

Netflix started offering subscribers a library of mobile games that are available through its iOS and Android apps back in 2021. However, the streaming giant has become more ambitious ever since and has expanded to higher-end games that can be streamed on PCs and TVs.

To make it easier for players to enjoy their games on TVs and PCs, the streaming giant launched a mobile controller app. The app pairs with TVs and turns the user’s phone into a controller that can be used to play Netflix games. PC and Mac users can play with a keyboard and mouse.

In August, the streaming giant launched a cloud gaming service in a limited beta. The service had two games for players to try out including Oxenfree from Night School Studio and Mining Adventure from Molehew.

Netflix is working hard to be a major player in the gaming industry. With the addition of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition to its game library, the streaming giant will hope to ride on the popularity of the GTA franchise to beam light on its gaming library—which many hardly know exists.
