Insider Chris Klippel claims that Rockstar Games is getting ready to announce a brand-new project, even as fans continue to speculate about GTA 6.
According to an inside source, Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption 2 publisher Rockstar Games is getting ready to reveal a new project soon, lending hope to those hoping for a new-gen upgrade for RDR2 or a remaster of the original. The video game mega-publisher has been rather busy these past few years, with Red Dead Redemption 2 launching to near-universal acclaim back in 2018 and Grand Theft Auto Online continuing to build a large and devoted player base with celebrity GTA endorsements from Dr. Dre and DJ Pooh. Not everything Rockstar has put out in this timeframe has been a success however, as last year’s GTA Trilogy – Definitive Edition launched with a vast array of game-crashing bugs and glitches, and the company’s perceived negligence of Red Dead Online continues to be a point of contention among fans.
Still, plenty of gamers are looking forward to what Rockstar Games has in store for the future, especially when it comes to the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto 6. Earlier this year, Rockstar finally announced that GTA 6 is indeed in development, prompting even more speculation about the upcoming open-world crime blockbuster’s plot and setting – with fans even going as far as dissecting other releases like GTA Trilogy – Definitive Edition for clues. Insiders have hinted that a trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 could be coming sooner than originally expected, and that Rockstar is building the game with a brand-new, in-house engine that could take the series to new technical heights.
Another insider now claims that Rockstar Games might be working on far more than just the next mainline GTA title. French gaming journalist and Twitter user Chris Klippel recently claimed that a major announcement from Rockstar is “imminent,” as translated by Reddit user Conquistador9725 on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours. Klippel doesn’t know when this announcement will take place, nor what it’s about, but he says he’s certain it’s for a brand-new project rather than more GTA 6 information. This has led to speculation over a Red Dead Redemption remaster, or a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrade for RDR2.
Conquistador9725’s Reddit post has prompted jokes about what this new Rockstar project could be, including that Rockstar is planning to re-release Grand Theft Auto 5 on the upcoming PlayStation VR headset or even the hypothetical PlayStation 6 – which is a jab at how Rockstar always seems to re-release its last GTA title every time there’s a new console generation. More serious observers are hoping for long-rumored sequels like Bully 2 or Manhunt 3, while others are predicting that this new Rockstar project will be a remaster of the first Red Dead Redemption.
Nothing official has been confirmed regarding this recent rumor of a new Rockstar Games announcement, including whether or not it’s even going to happen at all. As such, fans should take these claims with a grain of salt for now. Still, the idea of an announcement for Red Dead Redemption 3 or even a new Rockstar IP altogether is an exciting one for players who have poured countless hours into Grand Theft Auto 5 or Red Dead Redemption 2, even if it is still just the subject of rumor and speculation at this time.
