Red Dead Redemption Fans Express Concern Over New Rumor

Fans of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption series have found themselves somewhat concerned following a new rumor that has made the rounds. Over the past week, a video game insider said that new remasters not only Red Dead Redemptionbut also Red Dead Redemption 2 should be released at some point in the future. And while this may only seem like good news at first glance, Rockstar fans have a notable concern about how this situation might play out.

In short, the only qualms a number of fans have with these potential Red Dead Redemption remasters comes from the studio developing them. At this time, it’s unclear if Rockstar would be working on these remasters themselves or if it would instead be done by an outside studio. If Rockstar ends up passing this project on to another company, that’s where fans will worry about the state of these next-gen Red Dead titles.

So why would anyone other than Rockstar working on Red Dead Redemption remasters raise a red flag? Well, over the past year, many Rockstar fans have been treated to less than stellar remasters of the Grand Theft Auto trilogy. Specifically, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition came out towards the end of 2021 and was a mess in many ways to count. In particular, this version of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy was not developed by Rockstar Games, but rather by an outside studio known as Grove Street Games. Although this project in a general sense was still supervised by Rockstar, a number of fans pointed out the poor quality of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition due to the fact that Rockstar itself did not create this remaster.

So with all of that in mind, Rockstar fans are basically hoping that new releases of previous Red Dead Redemption games don’t fall prey to the same lackluster caliber that was seen with Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy. And while it’s still too early to be pessimistic about these remasters (we don’t even know if they actually exist, after all), it’s definitely something to keep in mind as we move forward. .

Are you someone who wants to see both Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2 be remastered for modern platforms? And if so, do you also expect Rockstar to be the developer behind each game?
