There have been rumors for a while now that a sequel to Red Dead Redemption was in the works, but now we have confirmation. Courtesy of GameSpot, we know that Take-Two’s Strauss Zelnick described Red Dead as a “permanent” franchise. In other words, we’ll see more of it in the future.
The topic of Bioshock also game up, and that series is not necessarily finished either.
“”We haven’t given any color on how you should think about it yet except we do believe it’s beloved; we think it’s important [and] certainly something that we’re focused on; something 2K Marin will be responsible for shepherding going forward. I don’t want to say much else except to agree with you. I think there’s a lot of upside in that franchise. It hasn’t necessarily been realized yet. And the question for the future, assuming we decide to answer the question, would be ‘How do you stay true to that creatively?’; ‘How do you do something exciting?’; and ‘How do you do expand the market?’ That would be the natural drill. We’re starting from a good point on it. And certainly it’s been a great piece of business for us; it’s been a profitable piece of business.”
A new Red Dead game is a candidate for an E3 announcement, and we’ll be interested to see what the future holds for Bioshock. What would you like to see from these two franchises?Tags: bioshock, ps4, red dead, xbox one
