Rockstar Has Reportedly Shelved Red Dead Redemption And GTA 4 Remasters To Focus On GTA 6

It seems that Rockstar has potentially shelved remasters of both Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4 so it can focus on the development of GTA 6.

This is according to a new report from Kotaku, which says its sources have confirmed a previous rumor that was making the rounds on social media by Rockstar insider Tez. This rumor explains that Rockstar had remasters of both Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4 "on the table a few years ago" but the projects were reportedly shelved, in part due to the poor reception of GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition. Kotaku's sources are now backing up this claim, and Rockstar is now reportedly fully focused on the development of GTA 6.

According to Kotaku's sources, Rockstar is hoping the GTA community will forget about the remastered trilogy's rough launch whilst working on GTA 6. The Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4 projects haven't been scrapped entirely though, as Rockstar is allegedly waiting until after the launch of GTA 6 to release any more remasters. We don't know when that will be, but the last official update we received from Rockstar was at the start of 2022 in which it explained development of GTA 6 was "well underway."

Fans that were eagerly awaiting GTA: The Trilogy will have little trouble remembering the state in which that game launched. Bug-riddled, janky character models, and full of spelling errors, the remastered trilogy will undoubtedly go down as one of the worst game launches in the history of the industry. Its user score was below 1 on Metacritic upon launch, and it still hasn't recovered to this day. Rockstar has been slowly issuing fixes ever since, although it looks like the damage has already been done.
