Red Dead Redemption 2: Is It Coming To PS5 or Xbox Series X|S?

Unfortunately, Rockstar's said nothing about a remastered edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox Series X|S or PS5. There's also been no suggestion that they'll offer improvements via backwards compatibility, which we've seen boost framerates for games like Horizon Zero Dawn or The Last of Us Part II.
