Yesterday we reported on the news that Rockstar was getting ready to announce something new. This comes after multiple sources claim to have the inside scoop of a possible new reveal set to take place “very soon”. However, it seems now that Rockstar might be revving up to reveal the Red Dead Redemption 2 Remaster during the Sony’s State of Play even tonight.
Sony is set to host its State of Play live stream at 00:00 tomorrow morning (3 pm PT) and the 30-minute stream will play host to a number of reveals. While Sony has confirmed that the company will focus on PS VR2 announcements, it also confirmed the stream would host first and third-party game updates.
Given Sony’s relationship with Rockstar Games, the State of Play seems like the more plausible place for the developer to shove a Red Dead Redemption 2 Remaster trailer into.
The news comes from insider Chris Klipper who confirmed that “things are moving” at Rockstar pretty fast. He was also a source that initially teased the Rockstar announcement but last night he posted a tweet saying that a Red Dead Redemption 2 Remaster reveal is probably the reveal.
Petite précision sur ce tweet, on m’a préciser qu’un trailer était en préparation sur “un nouveau projet” non dévoilé. Je vois beaucoup qui font des raccourcis et leur propre interprétation parlant de nouvelle IP. Ce n’est pas le cas, cela peut être RDR2 Next-Gen par exemple(1/2) https://t.co/Y7OgPyhjOr

Of course, take this with a pinch of salt for now but this is not the first time we have heard about a Red Dead Redemption 2 Remaster being in the works at Rockstar. Late last year, multiple sources claimed that Rockstar was working on an RDR2 Remaster alongside a new Bully game. The company also confirmed GTA VI is currently in development too. With the State of Play a mere few hours away, we can only hope this news isn’t a load of crap.
I would totally replay Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS5 if it got some visual treatment in a remaster. We will most likely have to purchase the game again but hey. Rockstar will be Rockstar.
