The John Marston Story Could be in High Definition
There is a new rumor that has surfaced claiming that Rockstar is currently working on a remastering of Red Dead Redemption. This alleged remake will be made for both next-generation and current-gen consoles. The possibility of having this for PC is not clear. The original Red Dead Redemption was released all the way back at the beginning of the decade in 2010. At the time, the game was revolutionary and received tons of Game of the Year awards and other accolades. It revived the dead Western genre in gaming, and of course, laid the groundwork for the success of Red Dead Redemption 2. The rumor states that the remake would release around 2020 or 2021.
According to the source, this remake is going to be more than a simple remaster. Along with better graphics, this remake will have a larger map along with totally new features that bring it closer to RDR 2. Apparently the voice actor of John Marston, Rob Wiethhoff has been called back into the studio to record new voice lines for the game. Rockstar supposedly wanted to release the remastered version in 2020 to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the original. However, due to technical issues, the game could be delayed a year.
The rumor is of course shaky. It comes from Reddit which is always a bit of a red flag. The source doesn’t even claim to be working for Rockstar. But that they simply know a couple of people that do. None of this information has been confirmed by anyone at Rockstar. It is totally unsubstantiated.
The parent company of Rockstar has been quite adamant about release games more frequently than they currently do now. Some cranking out a remake does not sound too outlandish. Only time will tell.
