Red Dead Redemption removed from PlayStation+ streaming

Red Dead Redemption is one of the biggest games from the 7th generation of consoles to not get a remaster in any true form. In fact, with the game never officially coming to PC, Red Dead Redemption has been mostly locked to old hardware. Unfortunately, the only way to Play Red Dead on modern PlayStation consoles – via PS+ streaming – is no longer an option.

As reported by the Rockstar-focused ‘videotech_’ Red Dead Redemption has been removed from PlayStation Plus streaming 6 years after it was first added all the way back in 2016.

While no reason was given for its removal, this latest move means that there is no longer any way to play the 2010 Rockstar classic on modern PlayStation systems due to the PS4 and PS5’s lack of true backwards compatibility with PlayStation 3.

As of now, the only way to officially play Red Dead Redemption on a modern system is through Xbox’s backwards compatibility as the game never came to PC.

Rockstar’s abandonment of the first Red Dead Redemption title is disappointing and while it is good that Xbox players are able to still experience the much-loved title, with each passing year the game is getting less and less accessible. Hopefully Rockstar Games eventually brings the title to modern systems and PC.
