With the release of Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy The Definitive Edition and Grand Theft Auto 5 Enhanced and Expanded Edition, now all eyes are on Rockstar Games to announce the next-gen version of Red Dead Redemption 2, and maybe make fans even happier with a remake or remaster of the original Red Dead Redemption as well as Red Dead Revolver.

That being said, the horrible state of Red Dead Online in the case of updates and new content makes it hard to believe that Rockstar Games has any future plans for looking back at this game ever again. But a recent tweet from a credible leaker might change your mind!

Star Wars Eclipse Leaker Claims That Red Dead Redemption 2 Next-Gen Update Is Coming

AccountNGT, a leaker mostly known for their information on Star Wars Eclipse and Hogwarts Legacy, recently responded to someone who asked about whether Red Dead Redemption 2 would be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in the future. The leaker simply confirmed that the update is coming, but didn’t mention any specific date.

Unfortunately, after the tweet went viral, AccountNGT deleted their response as well as all other tweets and replies. It still remains unknown why the leaker have cleared all the tweets on their page, but it’s probably due to DMCA and legal issues of leaking such information.
