We will continue to meet remasters and remakes in the future. The company Take-Two, Rockstar parent company, confirmed that it is working on three unannounced remaster / REMAC previously released games. The projects are listed alongside the upcoming versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 and the Kerbal Space Program for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S, and the planned standalone versions of GTA Online.
Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two, spoke earlier this year about the company's plans and said they did not want to issue simple ports as competitors. Instead, they want to take the time for developers to do their best work and incorporate new capabilities and technology.
"We're improving technology, improving the visuals, and improving performance. That's why I think our remastered titles usually do so well, " added Zelnick.
Fans hope that these three projects could be previously speculated remakes of older parts of Grand Theft Auto, specifically the popular GTA 3, San Andreas, and Vice City. You would run on the engine of the fifth part. One of the mysterious insiders on the GTA forum claims that in this case it will be more remakes, which he compared to the first Mafia. The games are supposed to look better than GTA 5, but not as good as Red Dead Redemption 2.
Others hope for a next-gen version of the latest western opus from the Rockstar Games. Asked about possible GTA remasters, CEO of Take-Two said it was an interesting question, but would leave any statements and all information about the plans to Rockstar. Others would like Max Payne to return to the 20th anniversary (Rockstar's own rights).
We should be smarter in a few months at the latest, the remasters / remakes are expected to be released by March 31, 2022. An unannounced AAA project from the 2K Games division is planned for this date. It will be introduced later this month (probably at Gamescom, August 25).
We should expect more remasters from Bethesda and Xbox Game Studios, respectively. A new rumor is spreading on the Internet from the well-known YouTuber SkullziTV, which specializes in backstage Bethesda. He claims that the company has created a new internal studio, the aim of which is to develop exclusively remasters and remakes from the Bethesda Library. The team is to be called Artifact Studios.
