Update: Following this report, Kotaku has weighed in with a report of its own, revealing that as per its sources, Rockstar has "shelved all remakes" following the poor performance of GTA Trilogy, and is focusing on GTA 6 instead.

Original story: We've heard rumblings recently of various remaster projects going on over at Rockstar Games. Aside from the now-released GTA Trilogy though, most of them have revolved around the Red Dead Redemption series. New reports bring GTA back into the fold, although sadly, this one may never see the light of day.

According to well-known Rockstar leaker Tez2, remasters of both GTA 4 and the original Red Dead Redemption were once in development in some capacity at Rockstar Games. However, Rockstar has reportedly cooled on the idea of either remaster.

Only in May of this year, rumours were circulating about a Red Dead collection for Xbox Series X|S, featuring next-gen ports of both Red Dead Redemption titles. This collection briefly appeared way back in 2020 as well, via an Amazon listing.

Tez2 speculates that the reception to the recent GTA Trilogy release could have put Rockstar off this particular pair of remasters, although that seems to be conjecture at the moment. For now, the two remasters appear to be in limbo.

Which of these would you prefer to see remastered, GTA 4 or RDR 1? Let us know in the comments!
