Rockstar Games has reportedly been planning to release new editions of “GTA IV” and “Red Dead Redemption” for a long time. However, according to industry insider Tez2, the developer studio has now decided against it.
Rockstar’s May 2022 Annual Report confirmed eight remasters, which should be out by 2025. So it wouldn’t be a surprise if the US development studio announced a remaster of “GTA IV” and/or “Red Dead Redemption”.
But that may never happen: According to industry insider Tez2, Rockstar Games has now decided against these two projects. He claims to have learned that from an unspecified “reliable source with unambiguous accuracy.”
In fact, Rockstar is said to have planned new editions of the two open world hits a few years ago. For an unknown reason, this project no longer plays a role – allegedly.
GTA trilogy could be to blame
Tez2 himself does not know the reason, but he suspects that the “GTA Trilogy – The Definitive Edition” could be responsible. The remaster bundle, consisting of the three PS2 classics, came onto the market in the worst possible condition and clearly annoyed the fans. The result was massive Review bombing and a subterranean user score.
Because it’s just a rumor, remaster versions of “GTA IV” and “Red Dead Redemption” are not yet ruled out. Until Rockstar Games has made a public statement on this, you should be skeptical about this claim.
Currently Rockstar Games is with the Development of “GTA VI” employed. The mammoth project may be eating up all of the studio’s resources, which is why other projects have to be abandoned. Otherwise, sooner or later there will be a next-gen release of “Red Dead Redemption 2” probably.
