Red Dead Redemption. Three words that may sum up one of the greatest games that Rockstar ever made, an epic western and a tale of revenge told through a six-shooter. It’s a game with equally good sales as well. So where in tarnation is the damn sequel already?
Despite being asked this question every couple of minutes I reckon, developer Rockstar is making no promises about saddling up again for Red Deader Redemption 2: Redeem Harder (You can have that for free Rockstar). “It’s wonderful to see so much excitement and enthusiasm for the Red Dead series, and nearly 5 years after Red Dead Redemption’s release(!),” the GTA developer wrote in the latest Rockstar Newswire Q&A.
As we’ve mentioned when asked in the past about new games in other series such as Red Dead Redemption, Bully and L.A. Noire, we don’t always rush to make sequels, but that does not mean we won’t get to them eventually. We have so many games we want to make and the issue is always one of bandwidth and timing. We thank longtime fans such as yourselves as always for your amazing support and please stay tuned in 2015 for announcements of what’s to come from Rockstar Games.
With GTA V now having made the successful leap onto current-gen, I’d imagine that Rockstar has enough free hands in order to work on something else that doesn’t include an aging psychopath with anger management issues. I’m also really, really hoping that they don’t announce a Midnight Club sequel next year instead of Red Dredd Redemption: I Yam The Law. Or an inevitable Red Dead Remaster, like half of the industry is doing right now.
