In addition, they are very profitable for developers and appeal to the nostalgia factor of the most experienced players. Without a doubt, the great remaster who comes will be Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox Series S / X. This game would then reach up to three different generations.

[…] So we improve the technology, the visual style and improve the performance. And that’s why I think our remastered titles generally work so well.
The last games of this line launched by the company were Mafia: definitive edition, which was a complete remake, and Mafia 2: Definitive Edition, which was a more traditional remaster, adapting the game to more current graphics.
