Rockstar Games is one of the most successful video game developers in the world, and their flagship franchise is the popular Red Dead series. The original Red Dead Redemption was released in 2010, and its sequel – Red Dead Redemption 2 – came out in 2018. Now, according to a prominent Rockstar Games journalist, both a next-gen port of Red Dead Redemption 2 and a remake/remaster of Red Dead Redemption for current platforms are in the works at Rockstar. This news has sent shockwaves through the gaming community, and fans are eagerly awaiting more details about these two projects. It is unclear when either of these games will be released, but it is safe to say that Rockstar Games has something big planned for the future of the Red Dead franchise.
It’s been over six years since Red Dead Redemption was released, and fans are still hoping for a sequel. The game was a critical and commercial success, and its vast open world was praised for its detailed graphics and tight gunplay mechanics. However, there have been no official announcements from Rockstar Games about a sequel. That said, there have been persistent rumors that a sequel is in development. And according to Rockstar Mag’s Chris Klippel, these rumors are true. In an interview with the magazine, Klippel claimed that he had “personally seen” evidence that a sequel is in the works. He also said that the game is scheduled for a release in late 2017 or early 2018. Of course, until Rockstar makes an official announcement, these claims should be taken with a grain of salt. But it’s definitely something for fans to keep an eye on.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally supposed to be announced much earlier, but the announcement was clearly postponed due to the Red Dead Redemption remaster/remake. I don’t know anything else about it, except that the project is still running and won’t be called ‘Outlaws Collection’. However, this doesn’t mean that the port isn’t still in development. In fact, it’s likely that the team is working hard to make sure that the port is as high-quality as possible. After all, Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and fans will be eager to get their hands on it. Given the delay, it’s clear that Rockstar is taking its time with this port, and that’s a good thing. We can only hope that the wait will be worth it.
Unofficial information and subject to change is often seen on the internet,whether that be in the form of a post or a story. It’s important to take note of this when coming across such information, as there is always a chance that it isn’t accurate. This is especially true when it comes to translation, as meaning can be lost in the process. In this case, the rumor in question has not been addressed by Rockstar Games, which is not surprising as the company generally doesn’t comment on reports, rumors, leaks, or speculation. However, if anything changes, we will make sure to update the story. Additionally, if any further information is provided by Klippel, we will also update the story.
As a huge fan of the Red Dead Redemption series, I was thrilled to hear that both games would be coming to the next generation of consoles. I’m torn between which one I’m more excited for, but if I had to choose, I think I would go with the remaster/remake of the first game. I loved the original game and it would be great to see it updated with better graphics and maybe even some new content. That said, I’m also really looking forward to playing Red Dead Redemption 2 on my new console. It’s one of my favorite games and I can’t wait to see how it looks and runs on the new hardware. Whichever project ends up being released first, I’ll be sure to check it out!
