Bad news for those who are still hopeful: Red Dead Redemption 2 remaster for PS5 and Xbox Series X will probably not happen. At least until GTA 6 comes out, according to sources familiar with the matter. Rockstar would indeed have abandoned the project in order to focus on the next installment in the saga.
Gamers are legendary for their lack of patience, but it’s hard not to side with them when it comes to Rockstar games. Indeed, no one would have believed in the existence of GTA 6 if the studio itself had not confirmed this. Nearly 10 years after the release of the last opus, fans are wondering why the firm is taking so long to develop its sequel.
In addition, some time ago there were rumors about the imminent release of a remaster of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar’s latest blockbuster, for PS5 and Xbox Series X. The rumor is far from wild: GTA 5 itself was entitled to a specific version for each console generation, while we know very well that Red Dead Redemption and GTA are inextricably linked.
Rockstar will focus on GTA 6
It’s best not to expect too much. In addition to the fact that Rockstar never formalized it, a recent leak seems to have put the project to rest. Indeed, the Tez2 leaker indicates that all Red Dead Redemption remasters for nex-gen consoles have been canceled as of today. The reason is simple: for now, the studio would prefer to focus solely on the development of GTA 6.

Upon closer inspection, the news turned out to be sadly predictable. Rockstar already announced this color a few days ago with the support of Red Dead Online. What’s more, GTA 6’s development seems to be dragging on, to the point where some rumors indicate that the game might not release until 2026 at the earliest. So it’s better to look on the bright side: with luck, we won’t have to wait like that. long.
