Game News Rockstar: no remaster of GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption because of GTA The Trilogy?
Right now, Rockstar Games is building the future of its franchise by developing a new story and setting that is as bombastic as it is satirical. However, all of this may take a very long time. To cope with the extended delays, Rockstar thought that developing a few remasters wouldn’t be such a bad idea. The release of GTA 5 and GTA The Trilogy testifies to this, but it could be that the New York studio doubts its strategy.

Red Dead Redemption, a case that turns the brain
Between the hallway noises around a second episode for the Bully license and the incessant rumors about the next remasters in the boxes of Rockstar Games, there is grain to grind. Just last week, we were looking back at the rumor of a remaster from the very first episode of Red Dead Redemptiona license that also makes the heyday of New York society alongside Grand Theft Auto. In fact, several insiders have made comments about a possible re-release over the past few weeks, or even months, thus fueling the hype players.
At the same time, several elements came to support the rumor of this return which excites the players in advance. Indeed, and even if all this is to be taken with enormous tweezers, the removal of franchise titles from PlayStation Plus interrogates. Especially since the strategy seems to recall the measures taken by the Rockstar company when revealing a little more about the release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition. Anyway, if the clues hold up on paper and some insiders agree, all of this would be just wind, according to a source described as reliable!
A cross on the remasters of Grand Theft Auto?
An hour ago, the words of TezFunz2 on Twitter, relayed by our colleagues from GameRant who present the individual as reliable, came to sweep away – at least, on paper – the months of incessant rumors about the next remasters of Grand Theft Auto IV and of Red Dead Redemptionfirst of the name. There would have been a desire on the part of Rockstar to offer remasters to the two iconic games in its catalog, but all this would no longer be on the agenda and there could well be a reason for this turnaround. !
According to a reliable source with a clear clarification on Rockstar’s plans, remasters of GTA IV and RDR1 were on the table a few years ago, but Rockstar chose not to pursue the projects in mind.

Of course, speeches of this kind are always to be taken with tweezers and hindsight. Still, TezFunz2 explains that he would have spoken with a reliable source close to Rockstar who would have told him about the abandonment of these remastering projects, without revealing the real reason. Nevertheless, TezFunz2 allows itself to point out the poor reception of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition, a more than chaotic launch which could have its part to play in the equation. Will there be, yes or no, remasters of these two games? Doubt still hovers, but the balance would seem to lean much more on the side of negation.
