Rumors have been hot and heavy that a Red Dead Redemption remaster or even a remake is in store. So far nothing has been announced or even hinted at from publisher Rockstar Games, and until then anything we hear should be taken with a grain of salt.
With that said, the latest “tidbit” comes from Twitter user @Budzcario who seems to think that this project will be released well before the end of 2023.
Nov 17th, 2023 release date
It's going to rock the gaming world, surprise of the century. Believe . I know this is the release date for 100%. They've been feeding fake info to pissed of devs to weed out leaks in their own company.
The leaked gameplay in 2022 was from early 2020.

“Budz” didn’t bother to divulge where his information came from exactly. However, games journalist Colin Moriarty (formerly of IGN) has also indicated that the remake/remaster is real.
I have seen confirmation that this is real…I had someone reach out to me behind the scenes that showed me something that definitively shows this game is coming. Maybe even imminently with an announcement, maybe in August.
It’s also worth noting that the game recently got a fresh rating from Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee.
Red Dead Redemption released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2010. It is revered as one of the best games of that era, and its sequel, 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2, followed suit garnering both critical and commercial success upon release. It has been speculated that a potential remake of the first RDR could be done in Red Dead 2′s engine.
