Red Dead Redemption 2 was a big success last generation. Released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, it wasn't as successful as Grand Theft Auto V, but Rockstar Games witnessed 38 million sales. Given this strong performance, it's left many wondering whether the original Red Dead Redemption will see a modern re-release.
Rockstar Games aren't strangers to remasters, having previously tacked the recent Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, though that saw mixed reception. We've seen a few rumours that Red Dead Redemption's next, so here's what we know.
Red Dead Redemption Remaster - Latest News
January 11th, 2022 -
According to insider AccountNGT, Rockstar Games is likely to announce a remaster for the original Red Dead Redemption this year. That'd come alongside a PS5 patch for Red Dead Redemption 2. However, AccountNGT doesn't believe a 2022 release is likely, even if an announcement is.
At this time, this all means unconfirmed by Rockstar Games, so we'll have to wait for an official announcement.
Red Dead Redemption Remaster - Platforms
Following the logic of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition's release, we'd expect to see a Red Dead Redemption Remaster on PC and all major consoles.
AccountNGT specifically mentions a PS5 release, though we'd bet on it also coming to PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. Considering Trilogy also came to iOS and Android, a mobile port's also on the cards.
Red Dead Redemption Remaster - Release Date
Considering Red Dead Redemption Remaster isn't officially confirmed, you won't be surprised to learn that there's no release date yet. AccountNGT believes that while it'll be unveiled this year, the remaster won't actually see a 2023 release, so we'll have to wait for official details.
Can I Play Red Dead Redemption On Current Consoles?
Yes, you can. While it's completely skipped Nintendo Switch so far, Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare are currently playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility. As for PlayStation, you can play it via PS Now on PS4, PS5 and PC, but because PS3 aren't natively supported, that's only available through cloud streaming.
