Rockstar cancels long-awaited project in favour of GTA 6, says insider

Rockstar cancels long-awaited project in favour of GTA 6, says insider


Rockstar Games only has eyes for one project at the moment, and you likely won't be too shocked to discover that it's GTA VI.

GTA VI was first announced to the public last year, though we haven't seen anything official since then. We've had plenty of gameplay leaks, though.

Take a look everything we know about GTA VI below:

In this time we've heard plenty of reports that Rockstar has put multiple long-awaited remakes and sequels on hold as it continues to throw everything it has at GTA VI. Given the obvious scope and scale of the next Grand Theft Auto we can understand this, but it still hurts.

It was previously reported that remakes of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption had been put on hold. And while we now have a Red Dead Redemption port on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation consoles, it has been suggested that this project was at one time intended to be a proper remake.

It's also been reported that one of the most requested Rockstar projects - a proper new-gen update for Red Dead Redemption 2 - has been cast aside in favour of GTA VI.

I probably don't need to tell you how badly fans want to see a 60fps update for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The fact we haven't had anything official is a crying shame, and such a missed opportunity to make one of gaming's most beautiful open worlds look even better.

Alas, Rockstar insider Tez2 revealed a while back that the project was in the works before ultimately being halted. All for GTA VI.

"I've heard about [the Red Dead Redemption 2 port] a long time ago. As well as [Rockstar's] plan to come up with an Enhanced Rockstar Editor. All cancelled / halted now," they explained.

I'm sure GTA VI is going to be a once-in-a-generation event for gaming, but at the moment all I feel is pain that I can't see Arthur Morgan at 60fps.
