Red Dead Redemption has received a new rating in Korea, which has led some fans to suggest a remaster is on the way.
The new rating on the Korean rating board grac.or.kr (via gematsu) has the classification number “CC-NV-230615-001″, with the “NV” in the number suggesting the rating is for a console game.
Although it’s entirely possible that the rating could be for a remaster of Red Dead Redemption, it’s worth noting that this is Rockstar Games, who are notoriously careful about preventing leaks (apart from the 90 gameplay videos of GTA 6 last year). Personally, we believe this is likely for an unannounced port to another console – But we’d love for it to be wrong.
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.
Following its initial release, the game received several downloadable content expansions. Among them, Undead Nightmare emerged as a standout, eventually becoming a standalone game. This expansion introduced a gripping single-player campaign in which the protagonist, Marston, embarks on a quest to find a cure for a rampant zombie plague.
Building upon the success of its predecessor, a prequel titled Red Dead Redemption 2 was released in October 2018, further expanding the rich and immersive world of the Red Dead Redemption series.
