A brand new principle/suggestion from a distinguished Rockstar Games insider has followers of Rockstar Games’ forgotten collection — like Bully, Max Payne, Manhunt, L.A. Noire, The Warriors, and Midnight Club — excited. This week, Rockstar Games introduced that it had acquired Ruffian Games, a crew finest recognized for Crackdown 2. Following the acquisition, the crew has been rebranded to Rockstar Dundee, and in accordance with some job listings, it may very well be engaged on a brand new game for Rockstar or probably some ports of older and pre-existing games.
Responding to this, distinguished Rockstar Games insider, Yan2295, floated out the concept that the crew could also be engaged on some remasters of older Rockstar titles, or at the very least he would not be stunned if that is what the studio was cooking up.
“If you keep in mind the information from just a few months in the past, Ruffian Games was already working in collaboration with Rockstar on some challenge(s), and employed many new folks for that,” stated Yan2295. ” I would not be stunned in the event that they have been engaged on remasters of some older Rockstar titles.”

Of course, if that is true, it is doable these remasters will probably be of previous Grand Theft Auto games or RDR1, the 2 predominant collection of Rockstar Games. However, this era Rockstar has proven that it is prepared to resuscitate different collection, prefer it did with L.A. Noire, when Rockstar contracted out to have the last-gen game dropped at current-gen consoles.
Given that GTA 6 is in improvement and that GTA Online continues to be completely large, it is laborious to think about Rockstar Games crowding these out with remasters of GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and extra. These games may very well be ported to next-gen consoles, however that is in all probability it. Meanwhile, a Red Dead Redemption remaster in all probability takes gamers away from Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online, which Rockstar Games additionally does not need. So this appears unlikely.
All of that is to say, if Rockstar Games is taking a look at remastering outdated titles, you’d need to think about a collection like Bully is a frontrunner. While the Bully collection is not as massive as Red Dead or GTA, it is actually Rockstar Games third most distinguished collection and one which followers have been begging Rockstar to do one thing with.
The possibilities of getting a brand new Bully are very slim. It would make Rockstar Games some huge cash, however not Red Dead or GTA cash. It’s laborious to think about a brand new game from Rockstar that is not from one in every of these two collection, which is why this principle has Bully followers and followers of Rockstar Games’ different forgotten collection excited, as a result of it is in all probability the one probability any of collection will reside once more.
