Rockstar Studios are known to have released quality titles for consoles such as the “Grand Theft Auto” series and “Max Payne,” among others.
Rumors, however, are boiling up claiming how a release date for “Red Dead Redemption 2” may happen next.
News came in after a Rockstar Studios blog manager threw out a few words in a post about the “Grand Theft Auto Online” thread earlier this year, claiming the possibility of a “Red Dead Redemption 2” or any other games release date from the company be announced soon.
“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,” he said as a reply to one of the fans. “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.”
However, to further strengthen the claim for the possibility of an announcement for a “Red Dead Redemption 2” release date, Take Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick talked to Game Spot and revealed the possibility of the game’s sequel.
“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,” Zelnick said. “Consumers want better, not more. 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.”
