The CEO of Take-Two has addressed the company’s approach to remastering older games and explained that the PS5 and Xbox Series X version of GTA 5 will be more than just a simple port.
GTA V is the best-selling video game of the past decade, and this has led to a ton of hype for a remastered version in the near future. Take-Two did not dismiss the idea, and fan excitement grew once they announced that it sold over 140 million copies.
We expect to see the new version of the game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in late 2021, and Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has reassured fans that Rockstar will put in the extra work when remastering old titles.
Will Take-Two keep remastering old titles?
During the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference on March 3, Zelnick was asked about the role that remasters will play in Take-Two’s future strategies. He made it clear that they aim to differentiate themselves from the competition.

“I’m not sure there’ll be a bigger part of the strategy. Remastering has always been a part of the strategy,” he stated.
“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.”
He explained that their strategy consists of improving the technology, upgrading the visuals, and making performance enhancements when remastering old titles for the PS5 & XBox Series X, which is why they’ve been successful so far.
What will be in GTA V Remastered?
When coming to the topic of GTA V’s remastered version, Zelnick stated that he was confident that PS5 & XBox Series X users would get everything they’re hoping for, citing the success of the Mafia series.
“It was a standard-bearer when it was launched, it continued to be the standard-bearer in the second generation, we’ll see how Grand Theft Auto does in the next generation.”
He reassured GTA fans that when Rockstar brings the game to the PS5 & XBox Series X, it won’t be a “simple port.” It seems that the team is going to dedicate themselves to making the remaster feel like a completely different experience from the original game.
When asked about Take-Two’s perspective on further remasters, Zelnick said that any update on their release schedule will come directly from Rockstar Games.
This is an exciting time to be a fan of this open-world gaming franchise, as there has also been speculation about a trailer for GTA 6 being just around the corner.
Regarding the GTA 5 remaster, we’ll keep checking for updates and will let you know as soon as we get more information about it.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 11 pick rates
Apex Legends Season 11 is well underway, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 11 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?
Season 11 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 11 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?
Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many players jumping ship to Respawn’s game in Season 10, Apex Legends Season 11 has benefited from continued support from gamers and streamers alike.
Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 11, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 11.
Apex Legends Season 11 pick rate ranked list
This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.
- Read More: Who owns Apex Legends battle royale?
Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 11 ranked, as of January 21, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:
- Wraith – 12.5%
- Octane – 12.3%
- Bloodhound – 10.3%
- Pathfinder – 8.8%
- Valkyrie – 7.4%
- Lifeline – 6%
- Bangalore – 5.1%
- Ash – 4.9%
- Loba – 4.4%
- Horizon – 4.2%
- Fuse – 3.7%
- Gibraltar – 3.7%
- Caustic – 3.7%
- Mirage – 3.2%
- Revenant – 2.6%
- Seer – 2.1%
- Wattson – 2%
- Rampart – 1.6%
- Crypto – 1.5%
Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 11
5. Valkyrie – 7.4%
With Ash being knocked out of the top 5 most picked Legends since her release at the start of Season 11, Valkyrie has officially taken her spot with a 7.4% pick rate.
Valkyrie is great in Season 11, with unbelievable mobility thanks to her passive Jet Pack. This allows her to reposition and get in and out of situations with ease, arguably having the best potential to survive out of all Legends due to great mobility.
Valkyrie’s Ultimate is great for maps like Storm Point, as there are no Jump Towers and so her Skyward Dive offers useful rotations. Her Ultimate is great for getting the team into a spot for final circles, as you’ll be able to fly above and past enemy teams rotating into the zone.
4. Pathfinder – 8.8%
Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.8%, and counting, for quite some time now.
As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.
3. Bloodhound – 10.3%
Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 11.
Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 10.3%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.
2. Octane – 12.3%
With a 12.3% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number two spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 11, fluctuating between the top two places.
Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.
But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.
1. Wraith – 12.5% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 11
Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number one spot with a whopping 12.5% pick rate in Season 11.
Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan-favorite in Apex Legends Season 11.
That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 11. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.
We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out the best Apex Legends weapon skins to use.
