According Kotaku, Rockstar suspended multiple projects in order to fully develop “GTA6”. Recently, the uncle party Tez2 broke the news that Rockstar planned to re-enact “GTA4” and “Red Dead Redemption 1” a few years ago, but Rockstar chose not to advance these projects. The poor reviews of the trilogy may be the reason behind it.
This revelation is supported by Kotaku. Kotaku quoted its own sources as saying that Rockstar has at least temporarily stopped re-engraving and turned to develop “GTA6” fully.
Kotaku sources say Rockstar hopes that by the time they release GTA 6, people will forget about those bad GTA remakes. But they also said that the remakes of “GTA4” and “Red Dead Redemption 1” are not completely abandoned, and may be revived after the release of “GTA6”.
Last November, Rockstar released GTA: Trilogy – Definitive Edition, a modern remake of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City and GTA: SA. However, these remakes have serious technical issues, as well as unlicensed music and developer logs in the game files.
Rockstar later issued an apology, promising a series of updates that would improve the games. Despite the technical issues with the launch, data released by Rockstar’s parent company T2 in February this year suggested that “GTA: Trilogy – Definitive Edition” sold 10 million copies.
