One of the most remarkable games to release on PC and consoles in recent years is Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar’s title offers excellent graphics and a large open world. For this reason, it would be challenging to imagine Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Nintendo Switch, a device much weaker than the competition. Nevertheless, such rumors appeared as early as 2021, and now they have returned. According to the recent leaks, the Red Dead Redemption 2 Switch version could be confirmed soon.
Red Dead Redemption 2 on Nintendo Switch
Steven Totilo from Axios said in 2021 that sources close to Rockstar informed him about the GTA Trilogy and RDR 2 for Switch. The first of these leaks has been confirmed over time, and perhaps the same will happen with the second part of the information soon. It’s unclear whether this is the case because he claims we are still waiting. But it’s interesting to see that Switch and Switch Pro are mentioned.
In addition, Nacho Requena from the Manual magazine revealed that the next Nintendo Direct would be about third-party games from external developers. And that rumor fits with Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in October 2018. In addition, he said that we could expect something from the ‘Persona series’ without mentioning a specific title.
I think we can expect a Switch port for a four-year-old title. Insiders believe it is Red Dead Redemption 2, which initially came out in 2018. If all this turns out to be accurate, it wouldn’t be the first time Nintendo has explicitly focused on third-party games. The game company held a ‘Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase’ for the first time in early 2020.
The new Nintendo Direct will likely take place at the end of this month. Nevertheless, RDR2 is a very demanding production, and its transfer to the Nintendo Switch would be quite a challenge.
