It will be intriguing to observe the compromises Red Dead Redemption 2 may undergo to run on the Switch’s hardware if the game does make its way to the platform. There’s a possibility it might be a cloud-based port, but it’s important to note that cloud ports don’t go through the rating process in Brazil. This amplifies the possibility of an official RDR 2 release on Nintendo Switch.
Red Dead Redemption is available on Switch, so RDR 2 may be coming too
It’s worth noting that Rockstar recently made the original Red Dead Redemption available in its authentic form for both PS4 and the Switch, which is quite intriguing. An RDR 2 launch on Nintendo’s handheld platform was expected, but nobody saw this Brazil rating coming so quickly after the original RDR’s launch on Switch in August this year.
Red Dead Redemption first graced the gaming scene in 2010, captivating audiences with its Wild West narrative. The concept of enjoying Red Dead Redemption along with the Undead Nightmare DLC on a portable console felt implausible just half a decade ago. Nevertheless, Rockstar has skillfully made the improbable, possible.
Early reports indicated that developers were working on creating versions of RDR 2 specifically for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. However, these plans were reportedly put on hold last year.
Released in 2018, the game is currently available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Stadia and remains one of the best selling games ever with more than 55 million copies sold.
