What we heard: Rockstar San Diego's Red Dead Redemption was released in May 2010 to glowing critical reception, notching GameSpot's 2010 Game of the Year award. Now, it appears the open-world Western will wear its accolades on its chest with a Game of the Year edition from Rockstar.
According to the reports, Red Dead Redemption's Game of the Year edition was listed by the BBFC with a September 16 release date. This listing has apparently since been pulled.
The Game of the Year edition of Red Dead Redemption will reportedly include the Undead Nightmare zombie-themed add-on, which was released in October 2010.
The official word: As of press time, Rockstar Games had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
Bogus or not bogus?: Given that Red Dead Redemption was named Game of the Year at various publications--and that even games that can't make that claim receive Game of the Year editions--it would stand to reason that the title would see a rerelease reflecting that. And including the content-heavy Undead Nightmare add-on would not be a wild proposition either. If the GOTY edition is to be released next month, gamers can expect word from Rockstar soon.
