The game was originally classified by the board in September 2018 before its release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One the following month.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was also released for PC and the now defunct Google Stadia in 2019.
Last month, Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar, announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 55 million copies to date.
Based on dollar sales, research firm Circana (formerly NPD Group) ranks it as the second best-selling title in the US over the past five years.
Considering the demanding nature of the open-world game, a potential release for the aging Switch hardware would likely be in the form of a cloud version that utilizes streaming technology from a server.
Rockstar recently released Switch and PS4 ports of the original Red Dead Redemption. Since its initial release for PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010, the game has sold over 23 million copies.
Michael Unsworth, the writer for the Red Dead Redemption series, recently departed Rockstar after 16 years with the company. He had contributed to the stories of nearly all of Rockstar’s major releases, and was one of only three writers credited for both Red Dead Redemption games
