Red Dead Redemption 2 has been rated for the Nintendo Switch in Brazil, just a month after a port of the first game was released, leaving many to speculate on whether Rockstar will bring the title to the console.

The details:

  • As spotted by X user @necrolipe, Brazil's government ratings board currently lists Nintendo Switch alongside Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC as the platforms Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available on. It's unclear when the platform was added to the listing, but we know it had to be recent as the Xbox and PS4 versions were rated in September 2018, and the now-unavailable 2019 Google Stadia version isn't present.
  • Last month, Rockstar announced a PS4 and Switch port of the original Red Dead Redemption, which was controversial due to the lack of a PC port, the little improvement in visuals over the original PS3 version, and its $50 price tag despite essentially being the same exact game from 2010.
  • If Rockstar has decided to port the critically acclaimed sequel, it will be a miracle if many of the game's graphics and other quality settings aren't dialed all the way down to achieve a solid frame rate. The original RDR runs at a solid 30FPS on the aging console, with a number of visual differences to the PS4 version, implying that RDR2 may need to be a cloud-based title to even run on the system.
