Take Two “Laser Focused” On Quality of Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer Breakdown

One thing that Rockstar has become known for lately, with how good Grand Theft Auto 5 was, is quality. Now, with another highly popular property under its belt in the form of the sequel to 2011’s Red Dead Redemption, Take Two Interactive is “laser focused” on the quality of Red Dead Redemption 2.

They can do this, apparently, because Rockstar Games, the publisher for Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead, and a variety of other games, has enormous bandwidth to be able to support a large number of other projects. This bandwidth allows them to work both on Red Dead Redemption 2, and new DLC for other things like Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto 5.

This past year has been a very good one for Rockstar, not just with all of the DLC it released for Grand Theft Auto, but also for its release of Mafia 3 in October, which had amazing sales despite an apparently middling reception by many reviewers. Mafia is a popular series, but admittedly Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead might have had their fandoms explode in recent years.

With Red Dead Redemption being one of the biggest successes in open-world Rockstar games in recent years, a tight focus on the quality of Red Dead Redemption 2 will likely be a must for Take Two, especially considering the backlash could result if the game turns out bad. With luck, this will also extend to the game’s multiplayer.

One unfortunate side-effect of Grand Theft Auto 5’s popular release is that the game’s multiplayer component got immediately swamped when it was released, and still has a number of problems, not to mention the various delays that Rockstar went through in trying to get the various heists out.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to be coming out on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 sometime in the fall of next year. In the meantime, let’s hope that Take Two really is laser-focused on the quality of Red Dead Redemption 2.
