Red Dead Redemption 2 fans are still begging for a PS5/Xbox Series patch

Red Dead Redemption 2 fans are still begging for a PS5/Xbox Series patch

What in the Sam Hill are they doing?

The rootening and also tootening troupe of Red Dead Redemption 2 fans have aired their aggravations that the game won't be getting a performance patch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Technically speaking, it is possible to play Red Dead Redemption 2 at 4K native resolution on the Xbox Series X, but the frame rate is restrained at 30 frames per second. On the PlayStation 5, the game is available however it runs at a locked 30 fps at a 1920x2160p resolution - which the boffins in the audience will know is the same as the PlayStation 4 Pro. As such a gorgeous and impactful game in a multitude of ways, it's almost inconceivable that Rockstar Games hasn't opted to upgrade it for the new generation of consoles.

Last week, Reddit user Jazzlike-Note3111 pointed out in the game's subreddit that parent company Take-Two Interactive is practically up to its earlobes in money, so why did it not prioritise bringing Red Dead Redemption 2 to new players?

There's a long answer and a short answer to this question, and in the interest of your time, I'll opt for the short answer. It's so short, in fact, it is just four words long.

Grand Theft Auto VI was announced to be in active development in early 2022 and Rockstar Games said it is aiming to "significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered" in the series. This, of course, asks for a level of dedication that means the rest of its IPs will have to be left by the wayside in order to ensure this goal is met and then some. Doesn't make it any less painful, though.
