Anyone still holding out hope for Red Dead Redemption 2 remasters for PS5 or Xbox Series X is likely to be canceled. Sources familiar with the matter say GTA6 won’t be released before that. Rockstar would have ended the project in order to concentrate on the next installment of the saga.
It’s well-known that gamers have a notorious lack of patience. However, it’s difficult to not be next to them when it involves Rockstar games. Even if GTA 6 wasn’t confirmed, nobody would have believed in its existence. Fans are still puzzled about why the company takes so long to create the sequel almost 10 years after the original opus was released.
There were rumors, a while back, that a remaster for Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar’s latest blockbuster, would be soon released for the Xbox Series X. This rumor is not true: GTA 5 was entitled to a specific version on each generation of consoles. However, we all know that Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA are inextricably linked.
Rockstar will concentrate its efforts on GTA 6
It’s best to not expect too much. Rockstar has not officially announced the deal, but a recent leak appears to have put an end to the project. According to Tez2, all Red Dead Redemption remasters on next-generation consoles have been cancelled. It is because the studio prefers to concentrate on GTA 6 development.
This news was predictable, if you look closely. Rockstar had already announced the color in support of Red Dead Online a few days back. GTA 6 is still in development, and some rumors suggest that it may not be available before 2026. It’s better to see the positive side of things: With a little luck, we won’t have to wait so long.
