Red Dead Redemption could be the only PS3 game for a limited time on PS Plus Premium

Red Dead Redemption leaves PS Plus Premium in October, further fueling rumors of a remaster.

PlayStation Plus recently launched its revamped services, including a selection of PS3 games that are available at the Premium tier. This selection includes Red Dead Redemption, a game that has been available for a long time on PS Now but has since been included in the new tier-based subscription service. The only weird thing is that Red Dead Redemption seems to be one of the only games that has an expiration date.


As Rockstar Mag’s Chris Klippel pointed out, Red Dead Redemption is only available on PS Plus Premium until October 17. Going through the more than 140 games available, Klippel discovered that the only other title that had an expiration date was Undead Nightmare.

“Yes it’s strange” Klippel wrote in response to a Twitter follower. “We reviewed all 140 PS3 games ourselves. Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare are the only games that won’t stick around indefinitely…”

This time limit could simply be the game’s original expiration on PS Now. Or, as Klippel suggests, it could be the first concrete sign that Rockstar is working on a Red Dead Redemption remaster. Prior to the release of the GTA Remastered Trilogy, Rockstar removed all previous ports and remasters from digital stores.

A Red Dead remaster has been one of the longest-running rumors, but sources who spoke to Kotaku last year said that if GTA remasters sold well, Rockstar would turn to Red Dead Redemption next. Although it was a critical failure due to technical problems and curiously poor visual effects, the GTA Remastered Trilogy was a commercial success, selling 10 million copies as of February.

If all of this is true, we could be just months away from Red Dead Redemption returning with improved visuals. In the meantime, you have until October to experience the original game via PS Plus, though it’s only available in 720p via cloud streaming.

In other PS Plus news, retailers are reportedly discontinuing old PS Plus subscription cards, so you may want to cash them in if you have some laying around.
