The editorial team at Kotaku, who broke the news of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy The Definitive Edition, confirmed yesterday’s rumors that Rockstar had intended to release remastered versions of GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption but had changed its mind after three attempts to do so failed.
Rockstar was actually going to be planning to renew GTA 4 and RDR, but the studio planned to change plans and discontinue projects, according to Tez, an insider connected to Rockstar games.
Rockstar decided to concentrate only on GTA 6: San Andreas after the disappointing debut of GTA The Trilogy The Definitive Edition, according to Zack Zwiezen of Kotaku.
According to recent speculations, Rockstar Games has put all of the remakes on hold and is presently concentrating on the creation of Grand Theft Auto 6, according to Kotaku’s sources. This is because Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition had a dismal critical response.
The editor confirms that he has heard from “sources who know Rockstar’s plans and future projects,” and he thinks the corporation is hoping that players would put the disastrous trilogy behind them and concentrate solely on Grand Theft Auto 6: San Andreas.
The publisher is hoping people will forget about the criticized and disastrous remasters of classic GTA released last year while he concentrates most of his resources and energy on his next major game, Grand Theft Auto 6, which Rockstar confirmed earlier this year is in development, according to sources familiar with his plans and future designs.
Red Dead Redemption and the GTA IV remake, which Zack Zwiezen also underlines are “not completely out of reach,” could still be developed once Grand Theft Auto 6 is released, despite Rockstar’s present focus on Grand Theft Auto 6.
“At the time we wrote this article, the publisher had been considering RDR remastering for a number of years, but after last years remasters proved to be a failure and the demand for GTA 6 surged, the publisher has again shifted plans and is moving toward the next big one. output without, at least for the time being, looking back.
Last year, Kotaku was the first to reveal the updated trilogy. Even writers contributed information, which Rockstar and Take-Two later confirmed. The same source now emphasizes that GTA 6 is the devs’ only priority, but regrettably, the editor has yet to even receive a preliminary release date.
Grand Theft Auto 6 release date information was not available from any of my sources, but it appears that the current strategy is to move on and hope that people would put the past behind them.
