Rockstar Games Working on a New Version of Red Dead Redemption 2?

Rockstar Games, a renowned video game developer, may have a surprise in store for fans. Recently leaked documents from Microsoft’s case against the Federal Trade Commission revealed that Rockstar Games was working on a new version of their critically acclaimed game, Red Dead Redemption 2.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting a new version of the game for the latest consoles, and it appears that Rockstar has indeed been working on it. The leaked documents included an internal email from Sarah Bond, Vice President of Microsoft, to Xbox head, Phil Spencer. In the email, Bond speculated about the company’s publishing plan for the fiscal year 2023, and the chart showed the designation “T2/RDR2,” likely referring to Take-Two Interactive and Red Dead Redemption 2.

The planned release window for the new version of the game was identified as “FY23Q2,” which corresponds to the second quarter of fiscal year 2023, or July-September 2023. However, the release did not meet this timeline, as indicated by the low likelihood of closure next to the release window in the leaked document. This suggests that Microsoft was not entirely certain about Rockstar’s plans at that time.

In terms of the port’s rating by Microsoft, it was classified as “moderately” impressive. The document also mentioned doubts about the PC release and the ability to link accounts. These pieces of information should be taken with caution as the documents were created in 2022, and there have also been rumors that the next-gen console update may have been canceled.

Fans of Red Dead Redemption 2 will have to wait for an official confirmation from Rockstar Games to find out if the new version of the game is still in the works. In the meantime, they can continue to enjoy the current version of the game and speculate about the potential enhancements that the new version could bring.
