Reasons for remaster cancellation of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption by Rockstar Games

Rockstar Games had many remaster projects in their hands some years back, including several versions of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption. However, the studio decided not to proceed with them due to some mysterious reason. According to reliable sources, the cancellation might be the poor reception that the GTA Trilogy receives from its fans and players. These sources assert that Rockstar Games are expecting fans to forget about the awful remaster of GTA Trilogy, as well.

GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption 1

Rockstar Games released GTA IV in 2008 and subsequently released Red Dead Redemption 1 in 2010. Both games received a great response and were accepted and played by many global people. Although they have so many updates, as well, the studio finally announced that these games are going to be scrapped soon. As per the reports of the recent insider reports, Rockstar Games considered remastering both games but later decided not to remaster them eventually. Tez2, the famous source of inside information on Grand Theft Auto and Rockstar Games associated news revealed the cancellation information on Twitter.

While the latest buzz on remastering the Grand Theft Auto IV makes most of the fans of the game quite excited, this cancellation news will certainly disappoint them. Moreover, as the studio has not made any GTA 6-connected declarations, they believe that the publicity about the remastering of these two games will be somewhat reliable. However, it is rumored that Rockstar Games is using most of its energy and resources on Grand Theft Auto 6.

Due to GTA 6

Some reliable sources state that remastering of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption may take place after the launch of GTA 6. The original story is that two of the Rockstar Games’ most beloved titles, such as GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, have allegedly been discontinued by the studio. Most people around the world are playing the two games on a computer, and both reliable and unreliable sources confirm the cancellation of these games. Tez2, the most trusted source in the Rockstar Community has confirmed that they will not be available to play online anymore.

Some sources reveal that remastering of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption was only in the discussion stage but not in the production stage. These sources also state that Rockstar Games considered remastering these games counted on the response of the Grand Theft Auto 3. As the game received the most awful response in the video game world, it may be the main reason for the cancellation of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption.

According to trusted inside resources of Rockstar Games, this information came with a record of offering correct information when it comes to the plans of the studio. These sources believe that the cancellation of both games might have been thanks to the poor response of the redesigned 3D Universe trilogy.
