Following the success of the “Grand Theft Auto” series, it is starting to look like that Rocktar studios is focusing on another series title under their belt, “Red Dead Redemption.” With the talks of a “Red Dead Redemption 2,” fans started to speculate a release date that is at the same time being considered by the developing studio to happen in the near future.
On their official website , Rockstar revealed the possibility of the series’ continuation considering how they saw the reaction of fans toward the game.
They also hinted that even though they already have thought about it, they usually take time in making sequels to games, pointing out other games such as “Bully” and “L.A.
Noire.” “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 studio answered a fan after asking the consideration of a sequel.
“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.” To further strengthen the possibility of a “Red Dead Redemption 2” release date, Game Spot reported that Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed them creating sequels for their permanent franchises including the said game title.
“The risk of just [releasing more games] is that you end up just bulking up your release schedule and that isn’t really what consumers want.
Consumers want better, not more,” Zelnick said.
“So our selective approach, which we’ve taken since ’07 I think has paid off.
Now, we have gotten more by taking that approach; we’ve launched one new successful franchise every year and I would like to keep doing that particularly because I talk about permanent franchises, but not everything is going to be a permanent franchise.
Some of our great franchises eventually will lose their luster and some will hopefully be permanent.” “I pretty much know the ones that I can assure you are permanent.
It’s obvious that ‘GTA’ is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that ‘Red Dead’ is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or ‘Borderlands,’ for example, and NBA and others.”
