With the reports from different sources stating that Rockstar Games has dished away the remasters of GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption 1, another report has recently popped up. This report, however, claimed that the company is no longer working on porting Red Dead Redemption 2 to PS5 and Xbox Series S|X.

This update comes from the same insider, Tez2, who originally revealed that Rockstar dropped the aforementioned remasters after Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition‘s poor reception – a claim that was later corroborated by other outlets as well.

It is a welcoming idea that Rockstar Games have decided to port in the Red Dead Redemption 2 for PS5 and the Xbox Series X|S.

Even though it was not as successful as GTA 5, which spanned three console generations along with GTA Online, Red Dead Redemption 2 sold like hot cakes and came with its own take on multiplayer in Red Dead Online. The multiplayer portion may have benefitted from adding current-gen players to the mix.

However, support for Red Dead Online dwindled, with Rockstar later admitting that it needs to invest time and resources into GTA 6 in order for the upcoming game to meet expectations. With that, it looks like any hopes of Red Dead Redemption 2 on current-gen platforms have been dashed.

On the flip side, considering Rockstar has had very little output since 2013, it probably makes more financial sense for the developer to move on to new projects while supporting the cash cow that is GTA 5. Banking on one game isn’t exactly a smart idea when there is potential for more.
