According to the first information released by the company, both games will be present in one package, they will have the same budget as a high-quality AAA game from Remedy and are still in the conceptual development stage, that is: they are not yet out of paper.
Despite being two great games from the 2000s and relatively playable today, it would be very exciting to see them brought back from the ground up with next-generation graphics and big budget quality from Rockstar behind the projects. The first title pioneered the “bullet time” mechanic, which used slow-motion time to help players defeat bad guys while also seeing great moments on screen (something largely inspired by the first matrix).
