A new rating for Red Dead Redemption from the Korean ratings board might indicate that the game is getting re-released.


The Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee has issued a new rating for Red Dead Redemption, indicating that a remaster or re-release of Rockstar’s game might be on the way.

As reported by Gematsu, the rating was issued on 15 June and given the classification number CC-NV-230615-001, which offers another clue: ‘NV’ in the code indicates a console title (‘NP’ is the code given to PC games). Then again, games given a console rating can also come to PC, so this doesn’t rule out a PC version of the game.

The Korean ratings board has been a fairly reliable source of game information in the past. For example, the Castlevania Advance Collection for Switch received a rating before its official announcement back in 2021, and a year earlier, a rating for Mafia II: Definitive Edition appeared before any news of the game was officially released. Earlier this month, a Korean ratings board classification revealed the existence of LEGO 2K Goooal!, a previously unannounced Lego game.

Red Dead Redemption was originally released in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and unlike its sequel in 2018, it has never been released for PC. Could we finally be seeing a version of the game coming to both PC and modern consoles?

It’s also not clear what form this re-release will take. Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition in 2021 with significant visual enhancements to Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, where AI was used to upscale textures. But the game was criticised for many of its graphical changes, such as the removal of fog and the way AI upscaling had affected shop signs, prompting Rockstar to make a series of updates over the following months.
