Midnight Club Los Angeles Remaster Reportedly In Development
A remaster of Rockstar Games’ Midnight Club Los Angeles has reportedly been in development, based on the latest rumor.
The song Dundy Lion by Markus Kienzl was the main menu music and also used in one of Midnight Club Los Angeles trailers. The artist took to Instagram over a year ago to reveal that he was honored and pleased to announce that Rockstar Games has once again licensed his track Dundy Lion feat Paul St. Hilaire for a remaster of Midnight Club Los Angeles.
According to Kienzl, the publisher will use it for the official trailer and in-game music for the remastered version of Midnight Club Los Angeles for “next gen consoles”. This implies that the game is in development specifically for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, and that there likely won’t be a PS4 or Xbox One version.
Of course, this may be a misunderstanding on the artist’s part, and Rockstar Games may have merely re-licensed the track for the original game, as it was recently relisted on the Xbox store with some songs removed due to their licenses expiring. However, he did seem pretty specific with the wording of there being a remastered version for “next gen consoles”.
Midnight Club Los Angeles is a racing video game developed by Rockstar San Diego and published by Rockstar Games. It is the fourth installment in the Midnight Club series. The game includes 43 cars (58 with DLC) and 3 motorcycles (plus one more with DLC). The three cities from the previous games are combined in the open world map of Los Angeles. Midnight Club: Los Angeles was released in October 2008 after facing a number of delays.
The game is set in the city of Los Angeles, again providing the option to completely free-roam in an open world environment larger than all the three cities combined from the previous game. New additions are a 24-hour day-to-night cycle, weather effects and traffic with licensed vehicles, adding a realistic aspect to the game.
