Rockstar reportedly developing Red Dead Redemption remaster for PC and consoles

While Red Dead Redemption 2 did make it onto PC as well as consoles, the original Red Dead Redemption continues to be a console exclusive to this day. That could be changing soon though, as sources claim that a remaster is now in development. 

According to YouTuber ‘Rockstar Mag‘, Red Dead Redemption is getting remastered for PC and consoles, likely including Xbox One and PS4, as well as next-gen consoles like the Xbox Series X/S and PS5.

So far, the closest thing we've got to a Red Dead Redemption remaster is the backwards compatible version of the game on Xbox, which runs at 4K resolution but does not make any further graphical enhancements or improve the game's frame rate. Currently, Rockstar is also remastering other titles in its backlog, including GTA III, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City.

This is not the first time that there have been rumours of a Red Dead Redemption remaster. Back when Red Dead Redemption 2 came out, modders began exploring re-creating the original game using the sequel as a base, but Rockstar's parent company, Take-Two, quickly shut down those efforts.

KitGuru Says: Considering it never had a PC release, there are going to be a lot of people that never had the opportunity to play Red Dead Redemption. With that in mind, releasing a remaster would make a lot of sense. Would you like to see Red Dead Redemption remastered for current consoles and PC?
