Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto 4 remasters have reportedly been canned in Rockstar.
This is according to the tweet below from Tez2, a popular leaker among the Red Dead and GTA communities. This time around, the guide claims that Rockstar was looking to remake the original GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption “a few years ago”, but “chose not to pursue projects in mind”.
According to a reliable source with clear accuracy in Rockstar’s plans, modified versions of GTA IV and RDR1 have been on the table for a few years now, but Rockstar chose not to move forward with the projects. Behind this decision #GTAIV #RDR14 July 2022
According to the leaker, there does not appear to be a clear indication of why both projects have passed within Rockstar. The leaker assumes that Poor critical reception for the Grand Theft Auto Remastered trilogy It could be a factor, but given the trilogy that launched late last year in 2021, and supposed editors were equipped “years ago,” those two details don’t quite match up.
After a few hours of initial information, follow up on the user with some additional information. They confirmed that the two planned models were not actually in active development at Rockstar, but rather were planned with rough outlines. It seems as if Rockstar originally planned to develop these two enhancers after the launch of the GTA Remastered Trilogy, but that is not the case anymore.
Remasters of IV and RDR1 were not in production, simply in the ideas stage and stayed there for years. Rockstar’s plan was to start with the Trilogy and continue with IV & RDR1, the decision to go green was more dependent on the Trilogy’s initial reception last year: https://t.co/t80Ei4fNGZ pic.twitter.com/Hr0aDdXlbs4 July 2022
Either way, it looks like we still don’t get Red Dead Redemption or GTA 4 remasters. However, it should be noted that you can still play the original Red Dead Redemption on a new generation Xbox Series X/S console with backwards compatibility, and the game from Rockstar is rarely sold at such a premium price.
The same can be said for GTA 4, which can also be played on Xbox Series X/S consoles via backwards compatibility. Though, fans have been longing for a re-release of the beloved game for years, but according to this new report from the leak, it doesn’t look like they will be getting this update anytime soon, if ever.
Another report claimed a Red Dead Redemption remaster planned from November 2021However, this claim has not been made since.
