Red Dead Redemption Remaster, Red Dead 2 DLC Rumors Debunked
It looks like the rumor mill has let us down again. During the first half of this week, two giant rumors regarding the Red Dead Redemption franchise kindled immense hype among gaming fans. The first rumor was that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be getting a single player DLC that would expand upon the teases of Aliens in the main campaign. This kind of wacky setting wouldn’t be out of place for the series considering the zombie-focused Undead Nightmare DLC from the first game. The other rumor, admittedly way harder to believe, was that a remaster of the first Red Dead Redemption would be coming to modern consoles and PC.
The originator of these rumors has come forward in a post on the r/GamingLeaksandRumors subreddit to explain themselves. The original poster stated “There is no DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2 or remake of the first game as far as I know.” Their motivations for starting the rumors came about as a personal “Experiment” in how rumors are proliferated throughout the gaming community.
While it’s good to officially put this rumor to bed, it certainly would’ve been nice to have some kind of single player DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2. Fans have been clamoring for such an expansion from Rockstar Games since Grand Theft Auto V’s release in 2013. The developer, however, is resolved to focus on new content for the game’s massively popular multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online. But hey, never say never!
