Red Dead Redemption 2 PS3 – is it coming out? After enjoying a successful release on PS4 and Xbox One in October 2018, PS3 gamers have been wondering whether or not Red Dead Redemption 2 would ever made it to PlayStation 3?
Well, we have the answer for you right here.
Red Dead Redemption 2 PS3 Release
After Red Dead Redemption 2 released on PS4 on October 26, 2018, it seemed that if we were going to see Red Dead Redemption 2 PS3, it would have happened in or around that date.
Sadly, Rockstar have confirmed that a Red Dead Redemption 2 PS3 release will not happen.
The simple reason for why Red Dead Redemption 2 won’t release on PS3 is that the game is simply far too demanding for the aging architecture of Sony’s last-gen console to be able to comfortably handle.
Indeed, with its massive open-world, super complex AI systems, hugely detailed visuals and sophisticated questing structures, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game that pushes even current hardware, such as the PS4 and PS4 Pro, to their absolute limit.
Still, despite Red Dead Redemption 2 not releasing for PS3, there are still a great many really great Rockstar games available for the console. From Max Payne 3 to Grand Theft Auto V and even the predecessor to Red Dead Redemption 2, Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar is still ably represented on the PS3.
Despite Red Dead Redemption 2 not releasing on PS3, there are still plenty of great games that can be had for the console – but for future Rockstar games, we think that Grand Theft Auto V was probably the last big hurrah for Sony’s last-gen console, especially as the legendary developer starts turning its focus towards PS5 and Xbox Scarlett development in the future.
Let us know in the comments below what your fondest memories of Rockstar PS3 games are, and which ones are your favorite.
