Rumor: GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption Remasters Were in Development Before Being Cancelled - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 05 July 2022 / 1,446 Views
Rockstar insider Tez2 who has previously leaked Grand Theft Auto Online content, has said via Twitter he has heard from a reliable source that Rockstar had plans to release remasters of Grand Theft Auto IV and the original Red Dead Redemption.
"As per a reliable source with clear accuracy on Rockstar plans, remasters of GTA IV & RDR1 were on the table a few years ago, but Rockstar chose not to proceed with the projects in mind," said the insider.
"The poor reception of the Trilogy DE might be a reason behind that decision."

Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition in November 2021. It included remasters of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The remaster collection was poorly received due to a lot of technical issues. Rockstar has since apologized for the state of the game and has been releasing updates to improve the collection.
