In fact, there are some speculations that Rockstar will finally make "Red Dead Redemption 2" official later this year. However, it does require some navigation to download the game.
Other Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One in this manner reportedly include Left 4 Dead 2, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night-and maybe others as well.
However, Venture Beat was playing it earlier on their Xbox One, so there's that too. Choose to see Red Dead Redemption in the store, and then a prompt to begin the installation should appear.
Red Dead Redemption appears to have been leaked as a backwards compatible game for Xbox One.
Some are also wondering how Red Dead Redemption runs on Xbox One. While far removed from the stylings of Rockstar's signature franchise, Grand Theft Auto, there were similarities in its open world approach and sold around 14 million copies.
Making Red Dead Redemption backward compatible could go a long way in promoting a potential Red Dead Redemption 2.
If you look up the name rockohoward on your Xbox One you will see that he is following Red Dead Redemption and has it downloaded on his system and has played it. Once there you should be able to download the game to your Xbox One, assuming that you own the digital version.
The game studio has already said that it takes them years to put out new iterations of their most popular titles, and considering that it has already been six years since the first installment came out, there's a reason to believe a sequel is close by. What this points to is an inevitable announcement from Microsoft of the availability of these Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility.
"Red Dead Redemption 2" has fans talking and anticipating for years already.
