After announcing GTA V has sold over 140 million copies, the buzz about potential GTA Remasters has increased after Take-Two did not dismiss the idea of remastering previous GTA games, plus they updated GTA 5’s lifetime sales.
Rockstar continues to generate excitement with so many potential plans floating in the air. The persistent rumor of GTA 6’s existence continues to linger in the air and keep people guessing. Also, the recent Rockstar employee leak has also hinted at further Rockstar listings, in particular, a Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy.
Whilst the world continues to second-guess these exciting projects, Rockstar’s magnum opus continues to dominate the entertainment landscape. GTA V’s lifetime sales are continuing to rise, and the billions of dollars the game has already reaped continues to reach unfathomable heights.
GTA Remastered Trilogy not just a rumor?
It’s no secret that Rockstar’s game releases have slowed down substantially in the last 10 years, mainly due to the rip-roaring success of GTA 5. However, recent evidence suggests that they are hard at work on multiple projects at once with GTA 6, a GTA Remaster Trilogy, GTA Online, and possibly a Red Dead Redemption Remaster too.
Take-Two Interactive’s recent earnings call discussed the success of GTA V and also referenced the possibility of remasters. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said, “It’s a great and encouraging question, I’m kind of inclined to leave it more as a statement than a question and any update on our release schedule will come from Rockstar Games.”
We feel a definitive no, or saying that it was not in their plans, would have ruled out any potential rumors, whereas this response is almost certainly going to stoke the fire a bit more.
On the other hand, Grand Theft Auto V is a relentless money-printing machine. Even though the game came out in 2013, it’s just had one of its best-ever years for sales.
“In fact, in calendar 2020, more copies of Grand Theft Auto V were sold than in any other year except for 2013 when it first launched on PS3 and Xbox 360.”
This is an incredible statistic when you think about it, and the game is scheduled for a PS5 & Xbox Series X re-release.
Regarding the remasters, and any other Rockstar project, we’ll keep an eye out and as soon as we hear the first official word on a game, we’ll let you know.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team sniping guide: What is sniping, how to snipe & make coins
Sniping players is an easy way to make coins in FUT, so we’ve made a complete FIFA 22 Ultimate Team sniping guide.
Sniping is an invaluable skill when buying players in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team because it helps keep hold of some of those precious coins. Here’s a full guide on what sniping is, how to do it, and how to use it to make FIFA coins.
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is all about filling out your team with the best possible players, from clinical strikers to clutch defenders. If you’re lucky, you’ll pull your dream player from a pack, but there’s a good chance you’ll have to tackle the Transfer Market instead.
While every player has a specific value, like any market you can secure a bargain if you put the time into sniping rather than just paying upfront. We’ve put together an in-depth guide on how you can snipe your dream team, and save yourself some coins in the process.

What is sniping in FIFA 22?
Simply put, sniping is the art of bagging a player from the Transfer Market for less than its usual value. This usually requires the user to act quickly and make the purchase seconds after the listing goes live.
Other FUT fans that are looking to sell a player quickly, or perhaps didn’t check the market properly, will occasionally list players for much less than they are usually worth. These are the listings you are on the hunt for.
How to snipe in FIFA 22
- Type the player’s name into the search box in the top-left corner
- Check the market value of the player you want to snipe
- Adjust the Buy Now slider for the most you are aiming to spend
- Hit search and look at the listings
- Quickly try to buy the cheapest player who pops up
- Refresh and repeat
If you’re looking to snipe a specific player, the first thing to do is type their name into the search box on the top-left of the market screen. This means that only listings for that player will show up and you won’t accidentally buy the wrong man.
Then you’ll need to check the actual market value of whoever you’re looking for to get an idea of what sort of price filters you need to set up.
Once you know how much they usually sell for, head to the price filters on the bottom-left tile and adjust the Buy Now slider to slightly less. There isn’t a certain price that guarantees you’ll find a listing, so it’s best to set it for the absolute maximum you would be willing to spend.
From here, it’s just a case of refreshing the market until one pops up so you can move in for the snipe. There are thousands of other snipers who may be trying the same thing, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t win the battle every time.
How to refresh the market quickly
One of the hardest parts of sniping is being the first to get onto the market so you can snatch a player before everyone else. If you’re too slow, then you’ll find yourself missing out more often than not.
Luckily, EA have provided a way of refreshing the market quickly if you follow this step-by-step guide:
- Set the Buy Now filter to the maximum number of coins you want to spend
- Adjust the Bid Price filter to 15,000,000 – the highest it will go
- Edit the filters to criteria you are looking for
- If no listings, or you lose out, quickly go back to the Bid Price fliter and move it down one
- Hit search again
Carrying out this method each time refreshes the market quicker than simply searching again with the same criteria. It takes practice to get the hang of, but the quicker you can pull it off, the more successful you will be.
How to make FIFA coins through sniping
While sniping is a great way to land a player for your Ultimate Team at a big discount, it’s also a way that savvier FUT fans can make easy coins.
By sniping lots of cards for a lower price, you can then re-list them back on the market for their actual value and net a tidy profit.
This can be a way to make small gains over a long period of time or make big bucks in one swoop if you’re able to snipe a high-value player for a lot less than he’s worth.
If your aim is purely to make coins, consider casting a wider net with your filters instead of looking for a specific card. For example, if French defenders are going up in value, search for all of them rather than just Kounde or Lacroix.
Who to snipe in FIFA 22
If you’re looking to sell cards to earn some coins, it’s best to go for those that are in demand.
That means sniping any players, managers, or consumables that are rare, needed for a Squad Building Challenge, have a high value, or are out of packs.
The market is always changing, but here are some transfer targets to get you started:
- CBs with a high pace stat
- Brazilian mangers
- Hunter Chemistry Style
- Players required for SBCs
- French players
- Silver cards from the top five leagues
Why you’re finding it difficult to snipe in FIFA 22
Even if you get the hang of sniping players, you may notice that they are often snapped before your fingers can react. There are a number of reasons why this could be happening.
The first is your internet connection. If there are multiple snipers all going for the same card at the same time, those with slower internet speeds will always find they come out in second place.
There’s also the issue of other users, especially on PC, bots to buy players automatically. These bits of software quickly snap up listed cards within microseconds of them going live.
Unfortunately, when it comes to snipe bots there isn’t much you can do other than try and hunt for a different card that may not be as obvious.
That was our full FIFA 22 Ultimate Team sniping guide. We’ll keep this page updated throughout the year with more helpful hints and tips when we find them.

Best FIFA 22 camera settings for Ultimate Team
Here are the best FIFA 22 camera settings you can try out to give yourself an edge over your opponents.
When playing a game of FIFA, the camera can give you an advantage over your opponents, so here are the best camera settings that you can utilize in FIFA 22.
If you just can’t seem to feel comfortable with the default camera settings, you have the option of giving yourself a slight edge over your opponents by changing it. If you’re looking for a competitive edge, then check out our best camera settings in FIFA 22.
Best FIFA 22 camera settings
When you first launch FIFA 22, the game’s cameras will be set to the EA Sports GameCam. While this gives you the same standard view as other players, you can try tipping the odds in your favor.
Here are the options that we recommend :
- Launch FIFA 22
- Visit the Options menu
- Select the “Camera” tab
- Switch both Single Player and Multiplayer Cameras to ‘Tele Broadcast’
- Set ‘Camera Height’ to anything between 10 to 17
- Set ‘Camera Zoom’ to zero
Switching both the Single Player Camera and Multiplayer Camera to the ‘Tele Broadcast’ option will provide you with a better look at the pitch, and the camera height lets you see the field better as well.
Once your overall display has been improved, you can alter the Camera Height and Camera Zoom settings. You can try adjusting these however you’d like until you’re satisfied with the camera settings.
