Red Dead Redemption 2 May Be Coming to Nintendo Switch

Red Dead Redemption 2 Might Make Its Way to the Nintendo Switch and Here’s Why

Speculation is buzzing as Red Dead Redemption 2 appears on the Brazilian government’s website for the Nintendo Switch. This listing raises questions about the potential launch of the game on Nintendo’s console alongside its existing availability on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

While it’s difficult to envision Red Dead Redemption 2 running smoothly on the Switch, the precedent set by The Witcher 3’s availability on the console suggests it’s not an entirely far-fetched idea. Alternatively, Rockstar might be considering a cloud-based version of the game.


Recently, Rockstar released Red Dead Redemption on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch, maintaining a 30 frames per second rate. On the Switch and base PS4, it offers a 1080p resolution, while players with a PS4 Pro or PlayStation 5 can enjoy a 4K experience via backward compatibility.

This potential Switch release comes amid a flurry of Red Dead Redemption 2 leaks, including a recent Xbox leak hinting at a next-gen update for the game. Despite Rockstar’s focus on GTA Online, Red Dead Redemption 2 retains a dedicated following and has sold over 55 million copies since its 2018 debut on PS4 and Xbox One.

While the legitimacy of this listing remains uncertain, it’s an exciting prospect for Nintendo Switch owners eager to explore Rockstar’s open-world masterpiece. Fans eagerly await any official word from the developer.
