Red Dead Redemption 2 Finally Getting Next-Gen Upgrade

Red Dead Redemption 2 is still one of the most beautiful games out there, and now it's about to be even more beautiful.


You know what's both sad and amazing: Red Dead Redemption 2 is still one of the most beautiful games in existence. That's sad, because the game is getting up there in age, and it shows just how poorly most devs optimize their game. At the same time, it's amazing, because... Red Dead Redemption 2 is old and still looks beautiful, just like those ladies in your browser history that rhyme with Dilf.

Now, it seems like Red Dead Redemption 2 is about to become even prettier, because a since-deleted Tweet confirmed that the game is coming to the new systems. You know what since-deleted means, right? It means: confirmed.

The news was first leaked by AccountNGT and picked up by Screenrant, who still have the deleted Tweet embedded. Of course, the news of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to the new consoles is a double-edged sword: On the one hand, yes, I absolutely want to have a reason to relive Arthur's adventures all over again, especially looking better than ever. On the other hand, it means that Red Dead Redemption 3 is still ways away...

Still, can you imagine Red Dead Redemption 2 looking any better? Because I sure can't. The game was already looking supernova-good, and even ran smooth as butter online, while looking better than some games being released today. If we really get an upgraded version of that, we might just live in a reality where an upgraded version of a game that's over 5 years old is the most beautiful game around.
