10 years since its release, Red Dead Redemption is still a masterpiece title, but what if Rockstar Games gave it a fresh coat of paint? A recent rumor has suggested just that and the release date for the purported title is teed up for release in 2020-2021.
The rumor has originated on Reddit by an anonymous user who allegedly knows one of the Rockstar Games environment artists. According to the rumor, Rockstar Games is currently remaking Red Dead Redemption and is planning on adding a bunch of new features into the classic title that are present in Red Dead Redemption 2. The rumor also suggests that the story will be slightly change to have a better transition into the sequels story.
The anonymous user also discussed some details regarding a Red Dead Redemption 2 single-player DLC, saying that its "alien centered like people have rumored (this was hinted by the ufo Easter egg). You're still Arthur in this DLC." The full quote is located in the entirety of this post, and I must say before you go an believe this news that since this isn't an official announcement please do take the information with a healthy amount of skepticism. Nothing of this sort has been confirmed as of yet.
Full quote: "All the new features from the new game are going to be imported into RDR 1 plus the map is getting expanded a bit to make it more vast (rdr 2 map is not apart of this because it is not needed in the story, it's mostly just making the desert bigger.) Rob has came back and recorded new lines of dialogue to help connect the two stories (References to Arthur and events of rdr 2 naturally) it was originally slated for the 10 year anniversary of RDR 1 but bugs have hindered the development a bit so they've shifted 2/3 of the Red Dead Online team to the Remake (hence the lack of an update as of yet.) And it's currently in the timeframe of being released either December 2020- January of 2021."
"He is working on Red Dead Redemption 2 story DLC it's in the middle of development right now and is slated for a release of Q1 2020. It is alien centered like people have rumored (this was hinted by the ufo Easter egg). You're still Arthur in this DLC."
