Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Reportedly Delayed for ‘Remastered’ Version; Take-Two Wants More Remasters Like Bioshock

Sheriffs, buckle up! Fans were ecstatic when Red Dead Redemption 2 made way for a new trailer. However, a word in the saloon has it that Take-Two wants to make more remasters first.

Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick already expressed his desire to make remasters for their other games through the years. However, fans and critics wonder whether or not this will pave way for a Red Dead Redemption remaster.

This may confirm some rumors that Rockstar Games is indeed on the ropes because of having two games at once. The question came to mind when it could be remembered that BioShock: The Collection was also a property for Take-Two Interactive.

This is also something fans have always clamored for, given the availability of the game via the Xbox 360 backward compatibility program. Red Dead Revolver is also even playable as PlayStation 4.

Red Dead Redemption 2: Yay or Delay?

According to GameSpot, the earnings call at Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive led to various discussions of ratings and remasters. It was reported that Grand Theft Auto 5 achieved a whopping 70-million copy sales record.

Meanwhile, Mafia 3 had lower scores than the developers have hoped for. Regardless, the latter already shipped 4.5-million copies in its first week, which was a record itself for 2K Games.

With this in mind, Strauss Zelnick said remasters suddenly come to mind when looking at the reviews. Prominent reviewers may have recognized the story, the art and the gameplay having blended together. Unfortunately, players may not be too entirely appreciative.

Regardless, Zelnick expressed his desire to release more remasters after the launch of BioShock the Collection. The company’s rich storage of intellectual property may mean more remasters than follow-ups to stories.

Of course, whether this is good or bad depends on just how much improvements are made with these games. However, it seems Red Dead Redemption 2 is still the focus of Rockstar Games.
