A The Outlaws Collection is said to have appeared on Amazon for a short time, which combines Red Dead Redemption 1 & 2 for the current consoles. What’s behind it?
A revised version of Red Dead Redemption together with Part 2 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S would probably not be desired by a few. An alleged leak on Amazon has now confirmed exactly that. Under the name The Outlaws Collection, a corresponding product entry was allegedly to be seen for a short time. At least a screenshot of it was posted on Twitter. But does the dream leak also stand up to an authenticity check?

Unfortunately, the sobering answer is: Most likely not. Because of course the eager fan base took a close look at the screenshots of the supposedly real listing and was able to find more than one discrepancy.
An indication that it is a fake can be found in the price invoice for the Amazon Visa credit card. When applying for one and then using one, Amazon would add a $ 60 bonus to the purchase. The sum to be paid would ultimately remain $ 0. Too bad that the listed price is 69.96 dollars. The difference between the price and the bonus is therefore not correct.
It says it’s $60 off with approval for the Visa. It also says that a person pays $0 upon approval for the Visa. $69.96 – $60 doesn’t equal $0.

In addition, the specified release date and the latest date for the return get in each other’s way. Accordingly, Red Dead Redemption: The Outlaws Collection should appear on December 31, 2021, which is obviously a placeholder, but the return is possible until January 31, 2021, i.e. eleven months before the release. Of course, due to the placeholders, it could be a mistake that Rockstar announces such a collection at such short notice is unlikely.
Hopes for a remake of Red Dead Redemption 1 or even a collection are likely to be dashed for the time being.
