A new logo for Red Dead Redemption has been spotted on Rockstar’s website, sparking speculation about a possible remaster of the beloved game.
The Logo Update
Twitter user @TezFunz2 brought attention to the recent update on the Rockstar website, revealing a listing for a game named “Red Dead Redemption (Rockstar Presents Ver)” in the internal games list.
Rockstar's new site update, live an hour ago, added a new reference within the games list.

While it’s plausible that this update could be a mere logo refresh for the digital versions of the game, aligning it with other Rockstar titles featuring the “Rockstar Games Presents” branding, fans are hopeful for more exciting news.
Korean Game Rating
Last month, South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee classified Red Dead Redemption, which has historically pre-empted official announcements of upcoming titles.
The new rating specifically references console games, implying that the remastered version might find its way to platforms beyond its original release.
The original Red Dead Redemption was released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010 but never made its way to PC. However, rumors of potential remasters for both Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV circulated before, though the plans were reportedly canceled according to a reputable Rockstar insider.
Red Dead Redemption Series
Following the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2018, which also introduced the standalone multiplayer mode Red Dead Online in 2020, the franchise has achieved remarkable numbers. Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar, revealed that over 75 million units have been shipped, with Red Dead Redemption 2 accounting for 53 million copies.
As fans eagerly await official announcements, the appearance of the new logo on Rockstar’s website and the recent classification in South Korea indicate that the wild west adventure of Red Dead Redemption might be making a triumphant return, either through a remaster or a potential expansion to other platforms.
