Based on all I’ve seen and heard, there’s a disgusting amount of cynicism from Rockstar about this release.
I mean, not only did they hand the job over to a dev that created a notoriously bad mobile version of SA – the second time’s a charm, I guess. Never mind that’s there’s reports that the remaster has some of the same bugs as the mobile version. Jesus Christ.
There was a total review embargo dropped down. There’s reports of the remasters crashing consoles. Since when was crashing consoles acceptable? And have a look at the various reddit threads showing textures basically consisting of the originals dumped willy-nilly into AI upscalers, and never human-reviewed.
Trash, fucking garbage it is. Toss the job to a low-ball set of cheap mobile chumps. “Naw, it’ll be fine” QA. Kill the originals, the dump it on a shite home-brewed CDN just so you can squeeze every last penny out of it. Then have the shite home-brewed CDN take a gigantic dump on release.
Fuck you, Rockstar.
