Rockstar sets its sights on 8 July for the coveted backwards compatibility for Red Dead Redemption.

After so many hints, hurdles and HD remake rumours, Rockstar has officially announced via its Twitter that last gen's western epic, Red Dead Redemption, will finally canter on to Xbox One consoles on 8 July.


The long-awaited announcement comes nearly a year after backwards compatibility was announced for Xbox One. When the initial list of backwards compatible titles dropped back in August, Red Dead was the most noticeable absentee from the list.

Those lucky enough to own a copy of Red Dead can play the game on the day of. However, if you've long lost your copy, ozgameshop are currently selling physical copies at $32.99.
