Rockstar Games has announced that Red Dead Redemption will be available to Xbox One gamers via backward compatibility. Xbox One already runs tons of Xbox 360 games and Rockstar’s wild wild west masterpiece which is sitting pretty at 95 Metacritic is surely something that many people will play.
A sequel is in development for the next-gen consoles but hasn’t been announced yet, maybe this is just something they wanted to announce before and give gamers a chance to play a highly rated game. It’s not clear if there’s a remaster in development as well, although that would be nice too.
The game will be available on Xbox One on July 8th, and if you have a disc you can simply download the game and play it. You can also purchase it from the Games Store if you don’t have a Xbox 360 disc.
