Red Dead Redemption website update all but confirms impending remake

Red Dead Redemption website update all but confirms impending remake

A Red Dead Redemption website update all but confirms that the remake is coming.

When Rockstar Game bangs out a new game, you know it’s going to be, well, a banger and perhaps none more so than Red Dead Redemption.

Released in 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Red Dead Redemption is set in 1911 during the decline of the American frontier, and told the story of John Marston and his family trying to leave the outlaw life behind them. Sadly, due to government intervention, Marston is forced back into the life that he tried so desperately to escape.

Red Dead Redemption went on to become not only one of Rockstar Games’ best titles (and that’s saying something) but is also considered to be amongst the best video games of all time, as reflected by its Metacritic score of 95.

Yet with Red Dead Redemption releasing 13 years ago (unlucky for some), there are many gamers that never had the chance to play this wild west masterpiece, not to mention veteran fans that would love to experience the game once more, preferably an even better version of the game they love.

Fans grew hopeful when in 2022, rumours were making the rounds that along with GTA IV, a Red Dead Redemption remake or remaster was secretly in the works at Rockstar Games. Sadly, reports later claimed that both projects were cancelled.

However, that hope was reignited once more when a new rating was filed by publisher Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar Games’ parent company) on 15 June 2023 for 2010’s Red Dead Redemption. Then further rumours claimed that the remaster was not cancelled, but was instead paused so that Rockstar Games could shift its focus on GTA VI.

Yet, as reported by TheGamer, it has been claimed by dedicated Rockstar Games leaker of information and reporter, Ben (@videotechx), that on 26 May 2023, Red Dead Redemption’s website domain was updated.

Furthermore, a rating detail was noticed by Twitter user @seinfelddahog, that the rumoured remaster has an updated gore description that has apparently only ever been given to three games, DOOM (2016), DOOM Eternal and Red Dead Redemption 2.

It’s also mentioned that the original RDR and its Undead Nightmare expansion were listed as having “realistic blood. So if the gore of the rumoured Red Dead Redemption remaster is considered to be the same as RDR2, there’s perhaps a chance that this will not be a remaster, but instead a remake.

We should take all rumours and speculation with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise. That being said, I am a firm believer in there being no smoke without fire. Hopefully, Rockstar Games will put us all out of our misery soon by announcing the Red Dead Redemption remake or remaster. Oh, and while they’re at it, they might as well announce the remaster of GTA IV, please.
