Another day, another rumor. This teases that a Red Dead Redemption collection – reportedly titled The Outlaws Collection and contains a remake of the original game and an improved version of Red Dead Redemption 2 – is on its way to current and next generation systems.
The rumors came complete with a supposed snapshot of the game on Amazon, but thanks to internet sleuths who are much better than I am at spotting these things, it looks like we can chalk this up as fake until proven real, especially as no link was provided as proof that the site is – or ever was – live.

“Red Dead Redemption The Outlaws Collection list has been leaked on Amazon and it includes RDR [Remake] and improved version of RDR2, “said the reported leak on both Twitter and Reddit.
However, a number of commentators have retaliated and disputed the claim.
“This is an edited HTML with a Photoshop image. Unless there is a link to prove it true, this is absolutely false,” insisted one responder on Twitter, while many others pointed out inconsistencies with the supposed works of art, including font differentiation and less than stellar Photoshop work. I am also not convinced of the release date of December 31st.
Of course, there is every chance that the doubters are wrong. Guess we’ll figure it out somehow before New Year, right?
The parent company of Rockstar, Take-Two Interactive recently said it was “very skeptical” about subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and EA Play.
In an investor call after the company’s earnings call, Take-Two president Karl Slatoff said that although the company was “open-minded”, it does not believe subscriptions will be “the only way or the primary way” players play in the future.
Rockstar also recently unveiled both GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 can be played via backward compatibility. Rockstar does not say what next-generation features the two games will benefit from, but you will be able to finish right where you left off with saved downloads.
