Um ok...
The way people are reporting it ROCKSTAR HAS A LAUNCHER NOW, SAN ANDREAS IS FREE.

SA has been pretty damn close to free for a while and... Correct me if I’m wrong, but hasn’t Rockstar had a game launcher since GTA 4?

Predating origin, uplay, epic, and all these new launchers?

So is it a new launcher? Or just something they’ve had for literally a decade?
Or a rebranding like how blizzard changed from battle.net to something I still call battle.net?

Ah ok, makes sense.
Only single way I will use this new launcher is for GOD DAMN GTA 6...

EVERY GAME, not even missing Unirally!

They might have trouble getting the rights to some of their Amiga games.

Surely that was abandonware 20 years ago?

I doubt Lemmings is abandonware.

Sony might own some of the IP, R* some too.

Sony does own the rights to Lemmings
That's because they once acquired original Lemmings publisher Psygnosis who became Sony Liverpool shortly before closing for good. As such, Sony has been sitting on the rights to the Lemmings franchise for a while and have just never really done anything with it until now.

Yeah I remembered they released that mobile version of Lemmings after posting.

And that's cool about the 6 free Batman games.
