According to the journalist, a full-fledged remake of the first Red Dead Redemption is in development.


Red Dead Redemption 2 is a hit with critics and audiences alike, but rumor has it that Rockstar doesn’t want to stop there. In fact, a remake of the first game is said to be in the works, as well as a PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version of the second game.

Source: Chris Klippel of Rockstar Mag. Klippel revealed that a real Red Dead Redemption remake is in development, as well as a PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version of Red Dead Redemption 2. More specifically, an insider claims that a next-gen version of RDR 2 has been in development since 2020, but the official announcement was delayed by Rockstar after they decided to do the remake first.

The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version of Red Dead Redemption 2 comes as no surprise. Rockstar Games is more than known for its willingness to release games across generations, think GTA 5. With 44 million copies sold and an Online mode, the Wild West game is the perfect candidate for a re-release on the current generation.

A complete remake of the first Redemption, however, seems more bizarre. It’s a huge game, and it would certainly take some serious production effort to pull off a project like this. A remaster, of course, would be easier to do. However, Take-Two (the parent company of Rockstar Games) has confirmed that they plan to make 8 remakes/remasters before 2025, so there is room for the first Red Dead Redemption too. Moreover, it would be a suitable opportunity to bring the game to PC, regardless of the format chosen.

As always, let’s remember that we are only talking about rumors and not official information. We will have to wait for new announcements, which may take some time.
