Red Dead Redemption 2 is on the verge of release and it is expected to be one of the biggest releases of this generation. While fans and analysts predict high sales and revenue, Rockstar is riding the humble boat for now.
Speaking with Vulture, vice president of creativity, Dan Houser stated that they will create a new Red Dead Redemption only if this one does well. Considering Rockstar’s previous successes, it is likely Red Dead Redemption 2 would do great and we will see Red Dead Redemption 3 sometime in the future.
Apart from Red Dead Redemption 3, the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 is also a strong possibility. The overwhelming success of Grand Theft Auto Online pushed Rockstar to create an online mode for Red Dead Redemption 2. PC is one of the most lucrative platforms for GTA Online. It is unlikely that Take-Two would miss the opportunity to generate expediential amounts of money from PC through Red Dead Online.
Red Dead Online will release on October 26 alongside the base game. According to Rockstar Games, just like GTA Online, it would feature complex competitive and coop missions.
Red Dead Redemption’s multiplayer was a real leap forward for us at the time. It was the first game that hinted at the real opportunities for open world multiplayer beyond cities, where the world was open as a place to create your own freeform gameplay, while at the same time was as a sort of living lobby for other, more structured kinds of game modes.
Rumor has it that Red Dead Online might even feature a battle royale mode. It is unclear if Rockstar would follow the trend but if they do, a Rockstar developed battle royale is sure to be something special.
The mode worked great for recent releases such Black Ops 4 and will soon be featured in Battlefield V.
