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. With Red Dead Redemption 3 likely very far away and Red Dead Online slowly dying, Red Dead Redemption fans don't currently have much to look forward to, unless the aforementioned and persistent rumors are true, and according to Rockstar Mag's Chris' Klippel, they are.
Over on Twitter, Klippel relayed word that both games are being brought forward in different capacities, and it sounds like they will release alongside each other. However, it won't be under the name "Outlaws Collection," a name that popped up after a retailer listed the pair of games together under this name.
"Responding to several private messages at once: I was able to confirm at the end of 2020, work on the next-gen port Red Dead Redemption 2 has indeed been going on for several months at Rockstar alongside the project of the remaster/remake of the first Red Dead Redemption. The Red Dead Redemption 2 port was to be announced much earlier. 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'. "
à la base être annoncé bien plus tôt. L'annonce aurait été visiblement décalée pour le remaster/remake de RDR. Je n'en sais pas plus, si ce n'est que le projet serait toujours d'actualité et que visiblement il ne porte pas le nom "Outlaws Collection".— Chris’ Klippel (@Chris_Klippel) May 16, 2022
Wait & see ! (2/2)
