Red Dead Redemption The Outlaws Collection doesn't exist: here's why

Red Dead Redemption The Outlaws Collection doesn't exist: here's why
Yesterday afternoon, rumors began to spread on the net that spoke of the existence of a collection called Red Dead Redemption: The Outlaws Collection, containing within it an improved version of Red Dead Redemption 2 and a remastered edition of the first chapter of the saga.

As proof of its rumors, the source has provided a series of screenshots showing the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Seris X | S covers of the alleged Red Dead Redemption: The Outlaws Collection on the Amazon pages. The rumors, as expected, spread quickly on the net, but it didn't take long before someone analyzed them properly and dismantled them for good ...

Zack Zwiezen, Editor of Kotaku, passed under his magnifying glass the screenshots shared by the author of the leak, concluding that they are fakes generated with a low-level Photoshop work. Zwiezen believes the source was limited to grabbing Morgan and Marston's artwork from the net via a simple Google search, easily replicable with keys like "John Marston RDR PNG" or "Arthur Morgan PNG". The sun and horses surrounding the two characters would also be identical to those found on the official cover of Red Dead Redemption 2, a mistake that, according to the Kotaku Editor, Rockstar's graphic designers would not have made. Additionally, some trees that are supposed to be behind Marston and Morgan, and therefore invisible, are mistakenly located above their artowork. Finally, he also dismantled the credibility of the Amazon screenshots by noting that the author forgot to change the date by which it is possible to return the product, which therefore appears to be prior (January 31, 2021) to the alleged release date of the collection (31 December 2021). Among other things, there are no direct links of the pages in question.

In short, we are faced with a fake created in the best possible way, without particular attention to detail. Rockstar may not be working on returning the two games to next-generation platforms, but that's almost certainly not the way it is doing it. While we're at it, remember that Red Dead Redemption 2 is backward compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X.
