A new leak indicates that the upgraded version of RDR2 has been cancelled, following similar reports of Rockstar shedding the Red Dead Redemption remake.
A known Rockstar Games leaker has stated that Red Dead Redemption 2 will not receive an upgrade on the new console generation. Rockstar has a history of releasing new versions of their titles on various console generations, primarily with the Grand Theft Auto series. 2013’s Grand Theft Auto V – which launched initially on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 – has been re-released on console generations and received another upgrade for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in March 2022 .
However, Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption “cow boy” franchise has received less attention in terms of re-releases despite its commercial and critical success, with its latest entry, Red Dead Redemption 2, sold over 44 million copies as of May 2022. Rumor has it that 2010’s Red Dead Redemption is slated to be remade alongside GTA 4 to bring it to modern consoles and possibly for the first time. first on PC. However, these plans were said to have been scrapped after the launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, which was almost criticized for many bugs and lack of features.

While very little is known about GTA 6 other than unconfirmed rumors and leaks, Rockstar officially confirmed that they are actively developing the title meaning fans don’t have too much time to wait.
