It wasn’t too long ago that rumors started circulating that a Red Dead Redemption sequel could be in the works. Baird Equity Research’s analysts expect it to be announced before the end of the year, after all. Well, those rumors are gaining a little bit more ground.
In 2012, Rockstar hinted that it might make a sequel to its open world western hit, and last year, a developer from Rockstar mentioned work on “the next version of a famous IP,” which he said had been in progress since June 2010. Since Red Dead Redemption launched in May 2010, the timing is right for work to have begun on a sequel.
Now, anonymous sources have told EMGN that it really is a new Red Dead game, planned for the PS4 and Xbox One, although Rockstar might rename the franchise in the process.
Red Dead Redemption was very popular, so we’re excited about this possibility. Of course, it’s still just a rumor, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more. In the meantime, let us know how you feel about a next-gen Red Dead game.
