Take-Two Interactive has shared a lot of interesting tidbits about Red Dead Redemption 2. It seems the game is coming sooner than expected. If all goes according to plan, then players may get their hands on the much-awaited Wild West game.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the sequel of the open-world hit Red Dead Redemption. Unlike other popular Rockstar Games titles such as Grand Theft Auto, the game series is set in the Wild West. Players are to take control of a wandering outlaw out to get the law in his own hands.
The critical acclaim of the prequel may have led to the development of Red Dead Redemption 2. The game was also highly-expected by fans, given the improvements in other Rockstar Games. As per reports, the game may arrive as early as 2018.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Release Date?
The news came courtesy of Take-Two Interactive itself during a third quarter 2017 earnings conference call. According to PlayStation Universe, the game will get a release within the next fiscal year. However, no specific release date was confirmed.
This means the game can be released between October 1, 2017 and September 2018. The development is surprising as it can be remembered that the game had just been officially introduced via a trailer last 2016. Regardless, it seems Take-Two Interactive has garnered good results during its development, which began last 2014.
The announcement would hopefully shut down rumors that the game will be delayed. This is after rumors spreading online that a new trailer of the game was supposed to be shown during this week’s SuperBowl. Its absence has led fans to believe that the game might be delayed.
Sam House, founder of Rockstar Games, told PlayStation Universe that RDR 2 will hopefully push their vision for “interactive entertainment in a truly living world.” He said the game will hopefully build upon everything they have learned making games. This is interesting as RDR 2 was also teased to get its own multiplayer feature.
Not much was revealed about the said feature, however. According to GameSpot, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed that RDR 2‘s online component will not compete with Grand Theft Auto Online‘s. In fact, he said RDR 2‘s online features will be built on the latter’s success.
If RDR 2 gets the same treatment as Grand Theft Auto, then a few things are to be expected by players. This means the odds of downloadable content (DLC) and updates are high, each bringing a new brand of Wild West insanity to players. However, players can only savor a trailer to fully appreciate the splendor of the upcoming game.
