Game News Red Dead Redemption: The rumor of a remaster resurfaces thanks to the new PS Plus!
If it remains, like 99% of other existing games, very far from GTA V in terms of sales, the Red Dead Redemption saga is a huge success. The second opus has sold nearly 40 million copies and in total, the license represents more than 65 million units.
Even Red Dead Online, however singled out by part of the community for the lack of new content, is progressing. But 12 years after its release, and despite the success of GTA 3, San Andreas and Vice City remasters, no Red Dead Redemption remasters have been announced.
Red Dead Redemption Remastered: a mirage or a real possibility?
Players with Xbox One S/X or Xbox Series X/S can enjoy hardware and software improvements allowing to have a form of remaster, but no “official” remaster was released by Rockstar. But for several months, rumors indicate that Red Dead Redemption Remastered or Remake could become a reality.
Leaker BOCOBOCACO, whose account has since been suspended, indicated in early May that a remaster would be announced during the current month, before going back on his remarks to indicate that an announcement would take place this year. Information to take with tweezerswho nevertheless came to reinforce AccountNGT insider statementswhich stated in February that a remake or remaster of Red Dead Redemption could be announced this year for a possible release in 2023.

Divided into three offers, it provides access to a large number of games via the Extra and Premium formulas. In the latter, many retro games PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP.
What interests us here is that, as noted by a number of observers including Chris Klippel (Rockstar Mag), out of 140 PS3 games available, alone Red Dead Redemption, its standalone Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare and Syberia already equipped a catalog release date.
The same strategy as for GTA?
If they are added to Shadow Warrior 3, Red Dead Redemption II, NBA 2K22 and WRC 10 in the list of games which, of all generations, will leave the catalog, the departure of Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare next October 17 questions. Why ? Firstly, due to rumors lying around, and on the other hand because Rockstar had withdrawn from sale the GTA which then made their return via Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition…remasters.
We must therefore closely monitor the situation, while recalling that this is an accumulation of rumors and potential clues, which forces us to remain very, very carefulpending a possible announcement.
