A remake of Rockstar Games’ popular open-world game Grand Theft Auto 4 has now been realized thanks to a new fan video that has emerged. In recent years, calls from fans for Rockstar to remaster or remake GTA 4 have continued to grow louder. And while Rockstar itself is reportedly solely focused on the development of Grand Theft Auto 6, we’ve now been given a glimpse of what GTA 4 could look like if it was brought to modern platforms.
In a new video uploaded to the TeaserPlay YouTube channel, a fan-made trailer for Grand Theft Auto 4 in Unreal Engine 5 was shown off. Using the latest version of Epic’s game engine, TeaserPlay was able to create a concept for what GTA 4 could look like on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC. Obviously, what is being shown here isn’t an actual game, but it’s more of a tone piece for this potential remake. Despite this, the video is still full of plenty of callbacks to the original GTA 4 and prominently features the main protagonist Nico Bellic backed by music from the game’s score.

Likely the most impressive part about this GTA 4 remake video comes with the various looks at Liberty City that we get. While the iconic city has always been well-detailed, the lighting and depth that the locale now boasts with Unreal Engine 5 makes it look better than ever before.
Since this is merely a fan-made project, it stands to reason that an official remake of GTA 4 from Rockstar would look drastically than what has been shown here. And while that’s an exciting thing to think about, sadly, such a project isn’t anything that we should get too excited about. Perhaps one day, though, Rockstar will give fans a proper remake of GTA 4 so that the popular installment can get a formal revival.
