According to a recent rumor going around the internet, Red Dead Redemption Remake is on Rockstar Game’s list, and it will probably be launched late next year or at the beginning of 2021. With that being said, the remake will come in variants for both Xbox One and Xbox Scarlett and both PS4 and PS5, and even for PC.
In addition to that, we have also gotten a few details about the remake, aside from a Red Dead Redemption 2 story DLC featuring aliens that Rockstar Games is working on. As the rumor suggests, this will not be a remaster of the game, but a remake, which obviously means that will have similar features of the current Red Dead Redemption. However, the size of the map might increase, but the Red Dead Redemption 2 one will not be featured.
Red Dead Redemption Remake Is Currently Under Development At Rockstar Games, Rumors Say
Moreover, the voice of John Marston, Rob Wiethoff, has been said to come back to help connect the two stories by recording new lines of dialogue. We are not sure if a call back has been sent to other actors as well, but it could be a possibility. Next year is the 10th anniversary of the game, and this is when Rockstar Games was supposed to release the remake, but due to development issues, we might get it in 2021.
Even more, to make sure that it releases on time, some of Red Dead Online team has been shifted to the Red Dead Redemption Remake project. This is something that might make us believe the rumor is not valid. It seems odd to pull people from Red Dead Online to have a remake of the first game done just to get money. We will see what the developer has in store for us.
