Red Dead Redemption Remake Remaster News: Release Date Rumours, and Everything We Know


August 18, 2022

As of May 2022, Red Dead Redemption has sold 44 million units worldwide putting the action-adventure title firmly in the list of best-selling video games of all time. But with Rockstar Games cooling their interest in content for Red Dead Online, and seemingly no word on any Red Dead Redemption 2 DLC, it’s unclear what the developer is planning next for the hit series.

What does seem somewhat clear is that there’s an appetite from fans for a full blow remake or remaster of the original Red Dead Redemption. Perhaps in the same vein as what Naughty Dog has achieved with The Last of Us Remake, which seems to have built on the work of The Last of Us: Part 2 to help bring the original game up to 2022 standards.

Are Rockstar Games developing a Red Dead Redemption Remake? What about a Remaster? Read on for everything you need to know.

18 Aug Update - Checked for the latest Red Dead Redemption Remake news. All the most recent updates are found just below.

Red Dead Redemption Remake/Remaster – Release Date

At the time of writing there is no release date for a Red Dead Redemption Remake or Remaster. Despite plenty of speculation and rumours (more on that below) Rockstar Games have not confirmed that development is underway on any such project.

As mentioned, there’s been plenty of rumours suggesting something is in the works, most of which can be foud on the latest news section below. However, for the time being, it’s impossible to say when we could see a Red Dead Redemption Remaster or Remake release since it’s both unclear if the project is in development or how far along Rockstar Games could be.

We’ll be sure to update this section as we learn more. But for now, read the news below for the latest updates.

Latest News

PlayStation, Xbox, PC Platform Speculation

We would have to imagine that any Red Dead Redemption Remake would be released on PC and all major consoles.

We would doubt that any Red Dead Redemption Remake would be a next-gen exclusive to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. We’re cynical enough to think that Rockstar’s publisher Take-Two Interactive would want the game available on PS4 and Xbox One to ensure as many sales as possible.

Plus, if we were to assume that any potential Red Dead Redemption Remake would be using the same tech as RDR2, it seems that those older-gen consoles would be more than capable of running the game with no trouble.

Unsurprisingly we doubt that a Red Dead Redemption Remake would be available on Nintendo Switch due to its limited capabilities.

Is Red Dead Redemption on current consoles?

Yes, you can. So if you don’t want to wait for the game to be remade or remastered you can also boot up the game on Xbox or PlayStation consoles, with the game available on Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus. You can also check out Undead Nightmare whilst you’re at it.

Unfortunately, you still can’t play the game on Nintendo Switch.

What would a Red Dead Redemption Remake look like

Hopefully quite a bit like this utterly gorgeous-looking trailer produced by ENFANT TERRIBLE using Unreal Engine 5.

The project intends to look at how a new Red Dead Redemption Remake (or a new Red Dead Redemption 3) might possibly look in the future.  Enjoy!

That’s everything you need to know about Red Dead Redemption’s rumoured remaster/remake. If you’re interested in more games coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in the future, check out some of our other guides just below.
