Rockstar Games fans seem split down the middle at the moment, with one half patiently waiting for news about Grand Theft Auto VI, and the other half desperately wanting more Red Dead Redemption content, specifically a remake of the first game.
Fans were sent wild recently when Rob Wiethoff, voice actor for fan-favourite Red Dead Redemption protagonist, John Marston, announced that he’d be happy to reprise his role for Red Dead Redemption 3 during a podcast interview.
Now, Wiethoff has expressed interest in working with Rockstar Games once again on a remaster of the original Red Dead Redemption. The original game was released all the way back in 2010, and proved to be a huge success, warranting a sequel/prequel, Red Dead Redemption 2 which was released in 2018.
Speaking on the Dan Allen Gaming podcast, Wiethoff was asked about his thoughts on coming back for another ride in the Red Dead Redemption series, with the voice actor saying: “I would love for it to happen … I would love an opportunity to work with [Rockstar Games] again, whether it be remastering something or something totally different.
“I don’t know. I can’t really say enough good things about Rockstar. If they do that, great, that would be awesome.”
A remaster of the first game wouldn’t be entirely out of the question, as Rockstar already went back to their previous titles with Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy- The Definitive Edition, which remastered GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas, albeit facing severe backlash and criticism over the quality of the remaster. Grand Theft Auto IV was also supposedly getting a remake, though it’s believed this was scrapped before entering development.
Unfortunately, it could be a while before we see a Red Dead Redemption remake or Red Dead Redemption 3, as Rockstar is placing all their focus on GTA VI, which is believed to be the biggest game they’ve ever made. If rumours are to be believed, it’ll include an absolutely enormous open-world, complete with several major locations, as well as a number of new gameplay features set to make it truly memorable. The CEO of Rockstar Games’ publisher Take-Two Interactive, recently said that the studio is striving for “perfection” with the upcoming game.
