PS Plus Premium loses critically acclaimed game today

Red Dead Redemption 2 hit the dusty trails today, September 20th, and leave PS Plus Premium for greener pastures. This has been known for a long time Red Dead 2 would eventually leave PS Plus Premium, and that time has just come. In fact, as a PS4 game it’s easy to assume it’s on the extra tier, but for some reason being tied to the former PS Now service makes it a premium title. Hopefully fans were able to take this time to play the game, but at least it’s leaving on the same day that some major games appear on the service.


PS Plus Extra and Premium will add 17 games on September 20th, including key PS4 and PS5 games such as Deathloop, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Dragon Ball Xenoverseand nostalgic classic games like Siphon filter 2 and the Smart Cooper Collection. The additions definitely far outweigh the removals, but still, Red Dead 2 stings a little.

After all, Red Dead Redemption 2 was not only a critical and commercial success for Rockstar Games, but one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. Per Metacritic, Red Dead Redemption 2 ranks 8th for best games (according to critics’ rating) of all time with an overall metascore of 97. It’s only beaten by The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (99), Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 (98), two versions of Grand Theft Auto 4 (98), SoulCalibur (98), Super Mario Galaxy (98) and Super Mario Galaxy 2 (98).

Of course, it can currently be overshadowed in the rockstar community. Many are aware that the company has been hacked, with gameplay videos from Grand theft auto 6 leaked online and the hacker apparently has the source codes of GTA 5 and GTA 6. Rockstar doesn’t expect any delays, but it’s hard to imagine how this wouldn’t have a negative impact Grand theft auto 6‘s development. However, the situation is ongoing and fans should keep their thoughts with the developers whose work was scrutinized before it could be shown. However, it appears that Rockstar intends to find out what happened, probably enlist all the lawyers it takes, and march on.

Not to compare the two situations, of course, but PS Plus Extra is marching on as well. With the carousel made up of subscription services like PS Plus and Game Pass, games will come and go. However, it is clear that good games come and go, but there is more to come.

PSPlus Subscribers get a handful of games each month.
