Two years after the release of the gigantic Red Dead Redemption 2, rumor has it that Rockstar is working on a remake of the first part. Info or intox ? We tell you everything!
The crazy rumor of the weekend
In recent years, a wave of remakes of great video game classics. The remakes of Final Fantasy VII, The Legend of Zelda : Link’s Awakening or Demon’s Souls hit the headlines. And it seems that the Rockstar studio is also tempted by the challenge. Indeed, rumor has it that the developer of Grand Theft Auto either working on the remake of one of his biggest hits: the first part of Red Dead Redemption.
The origin of this rumor is believed to come from screenshots of Amazon pages, showing a compilation of both Red Dead Redemption sur PlayStation 5 et Xbox Series X / S, titled The Outlaws Collection, with a bonus a remake of the first part, released in 2010. A beautiful promise certainly, especially since The Outlaws Collection would be released in December 2021, and that the remake would offer new missions.
First, we checked, and we did not find any trace on Amazon of the product sheet. Then, if we can understand all the interest that Rockstar would have in doing a remake of the first part of Red Dead Redemption, given the resounding success of Red Dead Redemption 2, it seems strange to us that Rockstar did not communicate on this subject, during an E3, especially for such a close release … The publisher could have capitalized on this announcement, and on the arrival of new gen consoles, to support the promotion of Red Dead Redemption 2. Finally, the price (barely 70 dollars) seems a little light, for a compilation of the remake of Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2, released two years ago. We therefore wait for Rockstar to confirm or deny the info. If these are just rumors, we hope that the publisher will be convinced of the relevance of making a remake of the game in the near future.
