GTA Trilogy and the controversy over the ‘songs removed from the radios’: beware of the fake leak

As the diatribe over the removal of the Confederate Flag from GTA Trilogy continues, a new leak, which turned out to be false, is taking place on the net about the songs that would have been cut from the fictional radio stations of the remakes of GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas.

The argument, needless to underline it, is rather “heard” by the community (sorry for the joke!), Above all due to the great importance that music has always had in the experience to be lived whizzing with your car through the streets of open world maps from the Grand Theft Auto series.

Not surprisingly, then, if some jokers tried to carve out some exposure on social media and industry forums with a fake list of songs that would be removed from the radios of GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas, citing as an “excuse” Rockstar’s failure to renew the licenses for the use of the respective songs. The list shared by the self-styled “deep throat” of the Big R included world hits such as “Hold the Line” and “Africa” ​​by Toto, “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson, “White Wedding” by Billy Idol and many other fire-printed tracks. in the memory of fans of the GTA saga and beyond.

The curators of GTAnet tried to clarify by explaining how “this list is false, it is probably a leak created on purpose to stir up the community. One of the songs listed is a reference to an unlockable achievement of GTA San Andreas, but in the state There have been no announcements yet regarding the music and songs featured in GTA Trilogy. “

At this point we just have to wait for an official communication from Rockstar which, we assume, should not be long in coming since GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition will be available from 11 November on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S.
