A Red Dead Redemption 2 PS5 as well as Xbox Series X variation was gone over inside at Microsoft, possibly indicating an inbound new-gen remaster.

In dripped court documents from the Microsoft vs FTC situation (which likewise exposed the Xbox Series X refresh as well as Oblivion and Fallout 3 remasters), Phil Spencer reviewed the prospective space in the Xbox Game Pass routine that would certainly be triggered by the hold-up of Starfield from 2022 to 2023. In feedback, the Microsoft group functioned to identify what upcoming advancement jobs can possibly be included in the solution.

As well as games like Dying Light 2, Cities Skylines 2 as well as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, that note attributes an access for ‘RDR2’ from ‘T2’, plainly indicating Red Dead Redemption 2 as well as author Take-Two Interactive. The access takes place to recommend that Microsoft was expecting “D&D for gen9.” In less complex terms, that’s a day as well as day Game Pass launch for a new-gen Red Dead Redemption 2 PS5 as well as Xbox Series X launch.

Microsoft’s listing likewise exposes a handful of additional information regarding that prospective port. Rockstar was anticipated to request greater than $5 million a month, yet Xbox thought of the game would certainly bring 10 million month-to-month hrs to Game Pass. It likewise kept in mind that an upgraded launch was “doubtful on PC,” yet it’s unclear if that describes an upgrade, or a particular Xbox Game Pass for computer launch.

Unfortunately, Microsoft likewise recommended that a prospective Red Dead Redemption PS5 as well as Xbox Series X variation would certainly launch throughout Q2 of the 2023 fiscal year. Based on Microsoft’s , that suggested an anticipated launch a long time in between October-December 2022, yet certainly that never ever emerged.

It’s unclear what’s ended up being of the task. This is Microsoft’s interior research study, so it’s not likely that a brand-new variation of Red Dead Redemption 2 was never ever in the operate at Rockstar or Take-Two. It’s even more most likely that the task has actually been postponed – perhaps as an outcome of the negativeness around the frustrating GTA Collection port, or the current statement of the initial Red Dead Redemption’s PS4 and Switch ‘conversion’.

The task might likewise have actually been terminated inside without ever before seeing the light of day, yet that likewise appears not likely. While we await GTA 6, Rockstar is most likely to wish to make some money, as well as offered the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 as well as the lack of an upgraded variation, it definitely looks like a new-gen launch would certainly be a great concept. Many game jobs are terminated inside prior to we understand anything regarding them, yet I need to claim I’d be shocked if that held true below, particularly offered Microsoft’s self-confidence in its presence.
