Red Dead Redemption became a massive hit for Rockstar on the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles. Following its success, the developer released a sequel in 2018, and the franchise has sold over 70 million copies worldwide.
Despite this success, Rockstar has not paid much attention to Red Dead Redemption. The game is still stuck on the original hardware, and it has not been released on PC. However, a new rating provides hope for a remaster.
Red Dead Redemption has now been rated in Korea.
Why it matters: Ratings are usually a sign of an imminent release. Upcoming games are rated a few months in advance, and ratings can also serve as leaks for unannounced games.
Released in 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 took the franchise to new heights. Rockstar’s IP is now more popular than ever, but millions of fans have likely never played the previous title.
The latest game is also a prequel, and this provided an easy point of entry for new fans. As such, the first game continues the story of John Marston, and a remaster would allow millions of new fans to experience this story.
Since Red Dead Redemption is over a decade old, Rockstar could choose to remake the game. However, fans have little confidence in the studio after the GTA trilogy remasters. The GTA trilogy was outsourced to Grove Street Games, and this led to a terrible launch.
It should be noted that the rating does not guarantee a remaster. Rockstar may have no plans for a remaster, but that remains to be seen.
Fans should also note that the game has just been rated for consoles. While this does not rule out possibilities for a PC release, Rockstar is known for releasing games on consoles before PC.
