According to a recent leak, a remastered version of Red Dead Redemption could be in development.
The first Red Dead Redemption originally hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2010. The game quickly became a must-play title, cementing itself as a video game classic. Now, according to French YouTuber Chris Liberty of Rockstar Mag, a remastered version of the game is currently in development.
Perhaps this isn't much of a surprise considering the success of its sequel/prequel, Red Dead Redemption 2. A large portion of the game's original map was recreated in RDR2, with some recognisable locations making an appearance. Bringing John Marston's tale into the modern generation seems like a obvious bet. More recently, Rockstar have remastered the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy, due to launch later this month. With remasters in season, perhaps it was only a matter of time before this outlaw RPG came back into our lives.
Red Dead Redemption Remaster Could Be in Development
In a Q&A with fans, Liberty received a question regarding a possible remaster of the first Red Dead Redemption game. After acknowledging the game's developement, he said it would be similar in scope to the GTA remasters. Fans can likely expect graphical updates and gameplay improvements, but perhaps nothing quite on the level of RDR2.
Liberty went on to mention that it's likely we won't see it for quite some time. An estimated timeframe for release of a remastered Red Dead Redemption wasn't mentioned, so perhaps don't get too excited just yet.
Keep in mind that this leak has not yet been confirmed by Rockstar, so take the information with a pinch of salt. If the game is in early development, then it's likely we won't receive any official details from Rockstar for a while yet.
Of course, it's as good an opportunity as any to fire up Red Dead Redemption 2 again to pass the time.
