Rumor: Red Dead Redemption 2 Coming to Next-Gen?

In my opinion, Red Dead Redemption was one the best games that came out in 2010. A western open world game, developed by none other than Rockstar Games. The game was a huge success and Rockstar might be working on its sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2.

It’s good to see an open world game other than Just Cause, Saints Row and GTA. Although they are excellent games in their own right, a Red Dead game is just what we need to freshen things up.

In 2012, Rockstar denied rumors of making a new Red Dead game by saying, “We don’t always rush to make sequels but that does not mean that we won’t get back to them eventually. Stay tuned for further announcements about the future of Red Dead series”.


Towards the end of last year, the developer revealed they have been working on “the next version of a famous IP” since June 2010.

We’ve also heard that the new Red Dead game might not be called Red Dead Redemption 2. Instead, Rockstar might rename the franchise when it comes to announcing it for next-gen consoles, although this  could change when making a formal announcement.

I speculate that the sequel will most probably be announced by the end of 2014, with a possible release in Q3 of 2015.

What are your thoughts on the next Red Dead game? Let us know in the comments below.
