Oh lawd, it might finally be happening. Over 13 years on from the release of the original Red Dead Redemption, new evidence seems to suggest that Rockstar Games might be bringing the title to modern consoles in some fashion.
Red Dead Redemption released on PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2010, and it’s honestly pretty shocking that it’s not been given a modern re-release yet. Red Dead Redemption 2 is, of course, a prequel, so it’s a bit awkward that it’s getting harder and harder for fans of that game to experience what happens next in the story (even though that part actually released first).

Anyway, it seems that things could soon be set to change. As IGN reports, a brand new rating for the game has been listed on South Korea's Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC) website. If you search for ‘Red Dead Redemption’ on the site, the rating appears to have been added on 15 June 2023 after being applied for by Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar Games’ parent company).
It’s worth noting that the ratings for Red Dead Redemption on Xbox 360, PS3, its Undead Nightmare expansion and the Game of the Year edition of the title all still exist on the website, so it appears that this is a totally new rating. Not much else has been given away, other than the fact that it’s been given an M rating (like the original release).
So, what does this mean? Obviously, everyone is now speculating whether this could mean a remake or remaster of the game is on the way - it wouldn’t be the first time that a game has been inadvertently leaked via a rating. At this point though, take this with a pinch of salt until Rockstar Games announces something directly, and please hype responsibly.
