A recent leak appeared to confirm that an enhanced and remastered version of Red Dead Redemption 2, named The Outlaws Collection, would be on the way to current and next-gen consoles. This came after a listing leaked on Amazon. However, to pour water over this hopeful bonfire for fans of the Western epic, it now seems the leak is most likely a fake.
To the untrained eye, the games, which are reportedly available for both $69.96, appear rather genuine, but, as there was no link to go along with the post to confirm the existence of The Outlaws Collection, we’ll just wait until Rockstar makes an announcement.
One Twitter user responded to the post from Gaming Leaks & Rumors, insisting that the post was no more than “an edited HTML with a photoshop photo.”
They further added: “Unless there’s a link to prove its real, this is absolutely fake,”
The leak has been subjected to criticism from other users, who’ve separately pointed out issues with grammar and its cover art, including it’s December 31, 2021 release date. Shortly after the post went live, Gaming Leaks & Rumors added that the listing was no longer available on Amazon.
If there is an enhanced and remastered version of Red Dead Redemption 2 on the way, then it’s a long way off, but to tide the gap in the meantime, Rockstar recently confirmed their backward compatible next-gen titles. These included the original Red Dead, it’s follow-up sequel, and a number of iconic Grand Theft Auto titles, including San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V.
A recent test published online by GameRiot proved that the loading times for GTA V’s story mode and online play would be considerably shorter on the Series X. A clip published online established that it took less than forty seconds to launch GTA V’s story mode and roughly two minutes for the online world.
