Microsoft court documents hint at Red Dead Redemption 2 Remaster

As part of a bit of an oopsie by the FTC, many private documents shared by Microsoft to the FTC have now leaked, revealing all sorts of information on new Xbox consoles, unannounced games and a whole lot more. This leak has not only affected Microsoft but also its partners, as one of the documents seems to suggest that a current-gen port of Red Dead Redemption 2 is on its way.

As archived by ResetEra user ‘Angie’, one of the MANY leaked Microsoft documents has a listing for a version of Red Dead Redemption 2 set to arrive on 9th-gen platforms (aka Xbox Series X|S and PS5). This remaster/port was seemingly planned to arrive sometime during Q2 of Fiscal Year 2023.

This has of course now come and gone with no mention of a current-gen release for Red Dead Redemption 2, meaning either that it has been delayed or perhaps even cancelled outright.

Getting a current-gen upgrade for Red Dead 2 has undoubtedly been one of the most requested ports by owners of these 9th-gen platforms – especially as the game already looks so good on last-gen hardware. Hopefully a native current-gen release is announced sooner rather than later, but we will simply have to wait and see.
