Where does it mention Red Dead at all as what they're working on?
nX  +   362d ago
Nowhere of course, it would be stupid to announce the game this way. I secretely hope that they are hiring for Agent but RDR2 is the most logical eventuality right now.
LightDiego  +   362d ago
I still think the next game from Rockstar will be Agent too, but probably we will play a sequel for RDR soon.
CloudRap  +   362d ago
They confirmed its been cancelled like a month ago
elninels  +   362d ago

Gamefly said they will not be carrying this a ps3 rental. I dont think any more information than that camw put.

Hardly a cancellation from rockstar.
Palitera  +   362d ago
"That Red Dead Redemption 2 development is now getting under way seems even more likely given that Rockstar San Diego, the studio behind Red Dead Redemption, is currently hiring for a lot of positions – 37, to be precise."

In his clickbaity idea, Rockstar San Diego can't do anything apart from RDR.

I work for a vfx company, and back in March of 2014 there was a Matte painter who in his HD had some images of RDR2 concept art. When I asked if it was legit, he replied positively... So don't worry guys, its going to happen :)

Based on how rock star releases games, it would make sense if rdr2 would be the next one they make.
Orionsangel  +   361d ago
It's nothing more than a speculation article, meh!
TheSaint  +   361d ago
There is no doubt in my mind that a RDR sequel is coming, RDR was too much of a success for it not to be.
Crazay  +   362d ago
pretty sure it was already in development. Same as Bully 2.
Hellsvacancy  +   362d ago
I'd love a new Red Dead game as much as the next gamer, however, I would rather R* made a new ip, a sci-fi maybe (hopefully)

Basically I don't want them to be forever making sequels, you KNOW damn well GTA6 will be released at some point this gen

Sci-fi really???
R* are better with Action, Adventure genre.. There is no need for them to develop any Sci-Fi related game..
Wigriff  +   362d ago
There's no point in being against them branching out; they're obviously very capable creatively.
Hellsvacancy  +   362d ago
So you telling me R* couldn't make an action, adventure sci fi game, most sci fi films/games are action adventure

I think you underestimate R*

Because action adventure sci-fi doesn't exist?

nucky64  +   362d ago
@hells.....there is enough sci-fi games already - give me RDR2!!!! I need a new-gen western fix.

edit: at everyone below who says it would be RDR3 - if it continues from redemption - it's 2. the first game was "red dead REVOLVER" #2 was REDEMPTION.....so if another red dead REDEMPTION is made,it'll be 2 - as in the second REDEMPTION game. how is this hard to understand?

The franchise is "RED DEAD", it is likely the next game would retain that naming scheme, and change the last word in the title... "Red Dead Revolution" was rumored to be the new title many moons ago.

Most likely it would be called read dead revenge or retribution cause of how redemption ended.

Red Dead Revengeance.

I'll shut the door on my way out.
Aberdasher  +   359d ago
Most of the sci-fi titles available now or upcoming are FPS's. Would you really say no to an open world sci-fi epic done by R*? Blade Runner/Total Recall/Fifth Element-esque elements, like Dfooster said. The more I think about this, the more I want it.
Dfooster  +   361d ago
Yeah I agree. Remember the chase scene from attack of the clones in those hover cars I've always imagined a rockstar GTA style version of that in kind of a bladerunner film noire style. Let's be honest that hasn't been done yet or at least successfully.

I liked Red Dead , but R* doesn't realease game sequels so fast , they may have openly suggested that they are gonna do it but that doesn't mean anything , a new Bully is more likely to happen as they said that after MP3 is done they might start working on it
kydrice  +   362d ago
GTA4 and GTA5 were 5 years apart. RDR is almost 5 years old.
Paytaa  +   362d ago
Red Dead Revolver and Red Dead Redemption were also 5 years apart.

How are people not getting this
Rimgal  +   362d ago
C'mon dude Red Dead Redemption is not sequel to Red Dead Revolver, is more like a spiritual successor.

It has nothing to do with the original, the only thing they kept from the earlier one was the idea of dead-eye targeting.

And Rockstar didn't develop the first one, they just published it.
-Foxtrot  +   362d ago
"C'mon dude Red Dead Redemption is not sequel to Red Dead Revolver"

Which is why Redemption wasn't called Red Dead Revolver 2.

It's the third Red Dead game in the series so it would be known as Red Dead 3 at the minute while we get an official subtitle.
Rimgal  +   362d ago
But I really hope they do a sequel to Red Dead Redemption.


Is one of my favorites games, and despite I loved the ending, I really wish I could play another game with John Marston that is not a prequel. One of the best characters i ever saw, and I'm including movies too.
Why do Rockstar had to kill him
OCEANGROWNKUSH  +   361d ago
Capcom never finished the game, how complete it was when it was handed over to Rockstar? Idk, but R* did develop, and finish the game from that point forward.

How are you not getting that if its a sequal or prequal to RDR its RDR2 and if its a completely new game its RD 3 or RD *******
Fez  +   362d ago
Surely it has to be Red Dead R_ _ _ _ _.

There's no reason to do a sequel since the game was wrapped up nicely in a single package.

Red Dead Retribution...nah, Red Dead Remembrance...nope, Red Dead Rebellion <- I like that last one! Heard it here first :)

Red Dead Revenge?

Red Dead Restitution. You have to pay money back to the families of every character you kill.

Red Dead Riverdance. You have to Riverdance your way to glory.

Red Dead Rikshaw. Dirt road racing while pulling a carriage.

Red Dead Resistance. Lead a resistance against the corrupt government that screwed over John Martson in the previous game.

hopefully, man i had some fun in the first one, especially getting lost and just looking at the moon light, so peaceful, then every now and then go into town and catch all the crazy gun action

it says Rockstar San Diego is the developer of the multi-million selling blockbuster Red Dead Redemption as well as other highly acclaimed hits such as the Midnight Club racing series, Red Dead Revolver, Table Tennis and the Smuggler's Run series. RAGE, Rockstar's central technology group, also resides in the San Diego studio and develops the

basically mentions red dead first, instead of their other franchises, red dead wasn't their first one, get it???

I hope they do Norcal during the gold rush as a setting. You could have early San Francisco,
the bay, even Yosemite, it would be the most logical setting.
Master-H  +   362d ago
I'd rather get Bully 2 first, then a new RDR.
Me too! I don't get all those dislikes , Bully was awesome! RDR was good too but I think it can wait a bit! Or a new Midnight Club would be awesome! :) RDR had a good story but it was released 4 years ago while those two games are a lot older so they have greater chances to be seen rather than a new Red Dead
jdaboss  +   361d ago
I'd rather not.
smashman98  +   362d ago
Why does everyone one call the suposed sequel red dead redemption 2
when it would be part 3 in the series its probably gonna be called red dead resomethingtion
kydrice  +   362d ago
So you want us to call it "Red Dead Resomethingtion" instead of Read Dead Redemption 2? You do realize by us calling it RDR2 is just a placeholder name right?
smashman98  +   362d ago
lol dude or red dead 3 would work
kalebninja  +   362d ago
but that placeholder makes no sense since the series is called red dead (and whatever they put here) the only appropriate placeholder would be red dead 3

If there was a game to get a remastered version it's RDR and not GTAV

Man I want a new RDR so bad. I was so lost in that game, John Marston is one of my favourite characters in all of storytelling media.
castillo  +   362d ago
Isn't Marston dead so how is a two possible.
ThatOneRiggaNob  +   362d ago
Spoilers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

at the end of the game you play as his son and i don't remember his son dying so there you go.
castillo  +   362d ago
So it shouldn't be called RDR2. If we are playing the Son.

Spoiler for what we know dad died in the barn.
Fez  +   362d ago
Could you imagine playing the whole game as his son... he was an awful character compared to John. I could see it if they completely changed his appearance and characteristics but I wouldn't want to play a game where the main character is a chubby whine merchant.

Plus they wrapped up the game nicely with no need for a sequel.

Things to add, remakes that include character's from famous westerns!

Red Dead Renegade, with the son not just being satisfied with revenge, but becoming a full on outlaw in his own right.
wannabe gamer  +   361d ago
nah the son is living in a world that has left the wild west behind. they need to just go back in time a bit and do a whole new cast and arc.
ICANPLAYGAMES2  +   360d ago
@Wannabe - You mean the world has been trying to leave the Wild West behind, and while marginalized it resisted for quite some time, all while time, tech, and industrialization kept moving forward (it didn't happen instantly).
CerealKiller  +   362d ago
It could also be a new Midnight Club.
kalebninja  +   362d ago
I like how people will call it red dead redemption 2 when if anything it should be called red dead 3... or red dead revenge
ScaryMonkey  +   362d ago
Only it wont be called Red Dead Redemption 2, it will be called Red Dead: With a Vengeance.

Awesome. I kinda hope they do a next-gen edition of RDR and finally give us a PC version as well. Went back a bit ago and RDR actually looks surprisingly dated in some ways compared to how amazing it was at launch. At least I'd personally love to play it again updated before a Red Dead 3.
