Gorgeous 'Red Dead Redemption' PC Remaster Mod Halted By Take-Two

Gorgeous 'Red Dead Redemption' PC Remaster Mod Halted By Take-Two

Not too long ago, we reported on a promising-sounding fan project that aimed to breathe new life into the original Red Dead Redemption, bringing it to PC with a number of shiny new bells and whistles. Red Dead Redemption: Damned Enhancement Project was in its very early stages, and intended to introduce a V1 in December that added "redefined graphical elements in high quality, including but not limited to; textures, UI/UX menu elements, in-game HUD, draw optimizations, shader and model updates," according to the mod's creator DamnedDev.

It was an ambitious piece of work that looked pretty great in the first trailer. DamnedDev was even looking to build a team to help get the mod put together more efficiently. While V1 would have focused on environments and weather effects, a proposed V2 would have added ray tracing and focused on character models and textures. Given that Rockstar clearly has no intentions to release a Red Dead Redemption remaster on PC (or any console) fans of the Western epic were pretty excited about DamnedDev's proposed project.

Unfortunately, Red Dead/GTA publisher Take-Two Interactive seems to have put the Damned Enhancement Projecton an indefinite time out. In a brief update, DamnedDev wrote "Please note project halted. Update video will be made and will explain. I'm not very happy. Please understand for the time being all will be explained."

"I can't [say what happened] but you know who had a hand in this halt," they continued. "I rather not speak more as they warned me to be hush but cmon really people already gonna know if it gets shut down out of no where. Just gonna put it like that if you get the drift or not. But yeah usual corp greed thinks they can bully you."
