GTA 5 on PS5 and Xbox Series X is more than a ‘simple port’

A remastered version of GTA 5 is set to hit PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles later this year, but Rockstar Games’ parent company, Take-Two Interactive, has no interest in making it – or any other potential remasters – merely a “simple port”.

Speaking during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, earlier this week (via VGC), Take-Two’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, explained that the company doesn’t necessarily see remasters becoming a bigger part of the company’s strategy going forward, and it plans to approach any potential remasters differently from its competitors.

“Remastering has always been a part of the strategy,” Zelnik said. “We’ve done differently than the competition – we don’t just port titles over, we actually take the time to do the very best job we can making the title different for the new release, for the new technology that we’re launching it on.”
