Forums - Gaming Discussion - Prediction: Red Dead 2 will get RDR1 Remake as only major single player DLC

So it seems to me that Rockstar have left themselves an easy gold mine here with the way they've built RDR2. Aside from the Mexico region (for which the assets may even be mostly done), the entire map of the first game is already here, a bit less lively - granted, but nevertheless mostly all there. It wouldn't take all that much work, I imagine, to simply add Mexico, throw in a time jump that spruces up New Austin just a touch more, redo the old cutscenes from the first game....and you pretty much got yourself a remaster hooked right up to your sequel. 

This would be quite a clever thing to do really, because you make a lot of people happy that are hoping for single player DLC, but at the same time, you can devote the majority of your resources/attention to building up Red Dead Online. Given the fact that Online was pretty much their only focus point with GTAV post launch, it wouldn't exactly be surprising if they wanted to do the same here. It's a big money maker after all. Remastering the first game within the groundwork of what they've already built here would be a relatively easy way to appease the single player crowd, at minimal cost.

Would be nice I guess, but after what they pulled with GTAV I am not expecting any single player content to be added

I disagree.

Honestly I think we will get Undead Nightmare 2.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Really hoping for a Westworld like Cyberpunk Steampunk DLC.
I’d love a remake though.

Hopefully rdr1 is remastered for the ps4 pro as dlc im ok with that including undead nightmare story of course
