Rockstar Games appears to be re-releasing classic PS2 titles for the PS4 as ports.
Rockstar Games is keeping awfully busy these days and though it’s only really showcased Red Dead Redemption 2 as it’s big new game in development, there’s a lot more that’s going on at the studio.
Take for instance the fact that the Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne and Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition for the PlayStation 4.
Though one of these eventually made its way to the PS3 as a port – namely Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories – the rest are better known for releasing during the PlayStation 2 era. This seems to be the case of Rockstar re-releasing these titles as classic PS2 games for the PS4 rather than full-fledged HD remastered ports.
Rockstar is currently busy working on an HD remastered version of L.A. Noire for the Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch though. It’s out on November 14th for those platforms.
