Rumor: Red Dead Redemption Remaster Coming In 2017, Announcement Imminent

by Anthony Decicco


Fans have been waiting patiently for signs of life from Rockstar Games this generation, having only released Grand Theft Auto V and a bevy of free content. It seems if recent rumors come true, Red Dead Redemption might be the game that Rockstar revisits this generation.

The rumor comes from a Korean website, which claims a trustworthy source has mentioned the 2010 classic Red Dead Redemption is getting a remastered edition for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The title would be getting a full Korean localization this time, as the original Korean release had English subtitles, but included a physical copy of the script translated to Korean. Their source also mentioned that a PlayStation 4 and PC version were confirmed for Korea, but not an Xbox One version which is somewhat common since the install base for the platform isn’t as big in Asia.

Another interesting tidbit is that even though the game isn’t expected to release until early 2017, their source claims the title will get announced this week at the upcoming PlayStation Event in NYC on September 7th. It does make sense that Sony would hold an event in Rockstar’s backyard and invite them to reveal the title. In the past the Korean ratings board have leaked the existence of Gravity Rush Remastered, so maybe this isn’t all just wishful thinking. Nonetheless, it is best to take this Red Dead Redemption rumor with a grain of salt, like all the others.
