Red Dead Redemption remake ‘leaked’, swiftly shot down by another leaker

Rumours of a Red Dead Redemption remake surfaced earlier in the week, but a more trusted source has dismissed it as nonsense.

When it comes to Rockstar, fans’ focus at the moment is primarily on Grand Theft Auto 6, which has yet to be officially announced but has been heavily rumoured for quite some time.

However, a few days ago, another Rockstar-related rumour emerged almost out of nowhere.

An anonymous and now deleted 4chan post claimed that the company is planning to launch a remake of the first Red Dead Redemption in the first half of 2021.

The post stated that it would be using Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine and would include some of that game’s features, like hunting and fishing, alongside new missions.

4chan ‘leaks’ are pretty shaky at best and this sounds almost too good to be true. Unlike most rumours, though, it wasn’t allowed to fester for too long, as it has already been debunked.

When news of the rumour broke, they dismissed the idea, pointing out a complete lack of any evidence. Given their more reliable track record, having accurately leaked information about titles like GTA Online in the past, to the point where Rockstar had to request that they stop, their position is much more believable.

Inverse also took a more analytical look at the post and came to the same conclusion, noting that it took Rockstar eight years to develop Red Dead Redemption 2.

With it releasing in October 2018, that would mean Rockstar had managed to make the supposed remake and get it ready to ship in only three years, which simply doesn’t sound feasible.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
