What We Can Expect from New Red Dead Remaster/Remake?
New Gore Rating
A post was recently dropped on the Red Redemption 1 subreddit; according to the post, the game is related more to Gore and Blood, meaning in the Remaster, the Blood Splatters and Gore will be more realistic, more bloody, and the body detaching animations in the game. Currently, there are only two games rated for this gore, one is Doom and another one is Red Redemption 2.
RDR 1 Remaster Build on Rage Engine
As we all know, Rockstar no longer works with Grove Street Studios due to the massive failure of the GTA Trilogy. Rockstar built the remaster or remake on their Rage Engine to fix that mistake.
Improved Graphics & Mechanics
As the remaster is built on Rockstar’s official game engine, we can expect improved, more realistic graphics and improved mechanics. According to the leakers, the game will have some critical mechanics from RDR 2.
Support Next-Gen Consoles & 60 FPS
In the current game, you will need to install emulators to unlock the 60 FPS, but according to the rumours, the game will support next-gen consoles like PS5, Xbox Scarlett with 60 FPS.
Will it be a Remake or Remaster?
On the Internet there’s lot of rumours spreading, which states that The Red Dead Redemption is getting a Remake.
But, according to our speculation we dont think so that the game is remaked because there’s lot of difference between Remake and Remaster.
In Remake, the whole story of the game is rebuilded and in the Red Dead we dont think so that the Rocksar will change or rebuild the whole story.
And in the Remaster, the game’s graphics enhaced, new features and mechanics were added. Collin Moriarty also clearly said that thing in their podcast that “he seen a proof of Red Dead Redemption Remaster is coming he didn’t use the word remake”.
So as of now its not officially confirmed that the game will be a remake or remaster.
Rockstar Trying to Covering up the GTA 6 Long Gap
As we all know that Rockstar has been working on GTA 6 for 6+ years, and something has yet to be officially announced about the game. And the fans are desperately waiting for official news about GTA 6. As per our speculation, the game will take more time to develop. To cover that long gap, Rockstar plans to remaster their previously released titles so that players get something new from their side until the game is fully developed and ready to play.
When is the Remake or Remaster Going to Release?
The Red Redemption Remaster was already in development for two years, but suddenly, Rockstar moved their focus to GTA Trilogy, due to which the development of two titles, RDR 1 and GTA IV, paused; otherwise, if that did not happen then an official release may be announced till the current date.
As from the rumors the official Announcement of Red Dead Remake may seen in August month and will be released on 17th Nov 2023. The date is not confirmed as it just a rumor and there’s nothing officially announced from Rockstar Games.
And if we look back, when GTA Trilogy was first re-rated by the Korean rating committee after eight days, rockstar games officially announced the series. According to the rumors, This type of thing may also be seen in the RDR 1 remaster or remake
Our thoughts on Red Dead Redemption Remaster/Remake
After seeing all these rumours, we concluded that it might be a complete remake of the game, not a remaster, but again, something has yet to be officially announced from the rockstar side, so we cannot precisely conclude the final product. I hope developers will announce something about it soon.
Rest we will keep updating the article according to the new reveals, so stay tuned with us.
