According to leaked info, Rockstar isn’t planning any more remasters anytime soon. Rockstar Games has reportedly decided to shelve plans for remakes for games like Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4 to focus on GTA 6. As per a tweet by prominent leaker TezFunz2 and then confirmed by Kotaku, both remasters were considered a few years ago. But Rockstar chose not to proceed with their projects in mind.
The decision to put the remakes to a stop was made in response to the exceptionally poor reception of last year’s GTA trilogy definitive edition. They sadly were buggy than anything else. But on the bright side, scrapping the remasters means Rockstar Games will focus its efforts on GTA 6 which was conferred to be in development earlier this year. That said, this doesn’t mean fans should expect any news on GTA 6 anytime soon. Rockstar will reveal the next game when they’re good and ready.
