In the podcast, Moriarty said, “I have seen confirmation that this is real… I had someone reach out to me behind the scenes that showed me something that definitively shows this game is coming. Maybe even imminently with an announcement, maybe in August.”
It’s worth noting that Moriarty only sources one person and it’s unclear what evidence was provided to suggest the remaster is real.
Rumours of a Red Dead Redemption Remaster began to swirl last week following a new rating for the game in South Korea. The new rating on the Korean rating board suggests that the rating was for a console game – But nothing else suggested that the game would be a remaster or remake.
So far though, the South Korean rating and Moriarty’s comments do suggest that the remaster is real, but we’ll have to wait and see if it gets announced.
Red Dead Redemption first launched on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 18, 2010 and despite the game’s overwhelming success, it’s never been announced for other platforms. It’s possible that Red Dead Redemption 2 could be announced as a port for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch – all of which are big markets waiting to be tapped into.
In May 2010, Red Dead Redemption made its debut on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms, captivating players and critics alike. This immersive game garnered widespread acclaim for its stunning visuals, captivating music, exceptional performances, engaging gameplay, and compelling narrative. It secured numerous prestigious accolades, including Game of the Year honors from various gaming publications, and is revered by critics as one of the greatest video games ever created. By 2021, Red Dead Redemption had shipped approximately 23 million copies, solidifying its position in the top 50 as one of the best-selling video games of all time.
