Rockstar Planning A 'Red Dead Redemption' Remake, Will Release On One Condition

As you've probably heard by now, it's looking like the long-rumoured Grand Theft Auto remastered is the real-deal and releasing this year. According to reports from both Kotaku and VGC, Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas are all being remastered in Unreal Engine using a mix of "new and old graphics".

But as exciting as that is - and it is terribly exciting - that's apparently not all Rockstar is cooking up. The same reports also state that the company is toying with the idea of releasing a Red Dead Redemption remake.

Take a look at the best Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails below!

According to Kotaku and VGC, Rockstar will remaster and re-release the classic 2010 Western on one condition: the GTA remastered trilogy has to sell well. To be fair, I'm not sure that's much of a condition at all given that any package that includes a remaster of San Andreas is clearly going to sell ridiculously well... but there it is. If you weren't already planning on getting the GTA remasters, you probably are now. And thus, Rockstar's work is done before it even starts.

Rumours of a Red Dead Redemption remake have been floating around for a while now, with some reports suggesting that Rockstar would re-release the game using the assets and environments from Red Dead Redemption 2. There were even a few claims that such a remake would include re-recorded voice lines and an update story to reference the events of RDR2 and its protagonist, Arthur Morgan.

That's all entirely unconfirmed at this point, however, and the extent and scope of any potential return to Red Dead Redemption has yet to be confirmed. For now, we can look forward to the GTA remastered trilogy around October/November, and the "expanded and enhanced" version of GTA V for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
