Publisher Take Two Interactive has high hopes for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 and believes the game will succeed on its own merits.
Good 2 hear. Can't wait for this
This game is going to sell really well on PS4 because of the install base and Sony partnered with Rock*. Hopefully they make a PC version in the future.
The hell that has to do with anything? Its going to sell well because its rockstar, a trusted company. Im a super Sony fan, but this comment was ridiculous.
not a big enough sony fan, even when i see a stupid comment if its for sony I thumbs it up.
Well I mean he's not wrong but I agree with you it wasn't really necessary to say it, he's just stating the obvious.
Always exciting to hear. Here's hoping this beats the first outing in quality and a lot was learned from all of Grand Theft Auto 5's problems.
In my opinion, the story isn't very memorable, not many buildings can be entered (more interiors in 4), vehicle controls don't feel as correct as the 4th outing, nor does running, NPCs don't react to where they're shot and can't really get into more involving fistfights. That's just a few small details that should be refined. Sandbox games are supposed to give you a level of detail and make it better, not take away the very features you're supposed to improve. In the end it's not a bad game, it's just not on the level Rockstar usually hits.
What other merits would this game succeed on?
I think it's them just assuring that the game will succeed on its own because it'll be good and not depend on microtransactions.
Well they just said the other day that all their games will have microtransactions shoved into them so I can assume with the backlash that many gamers would be naturally worried.
a 500 million dollar marketing budget. like destiny, COD, etc
Light damage control going on here after earlier comments about microtransactions. I for one would much prefer two massive story DLCs at a considerable price like with GTA IV. Maybe one where we play as a sheriff?
Please SIr, I want this game on PC.
Wont happen, at least not in 2 years... thats IF R* plans on releasing RDR 2 on PC since RDR 1 didn't come out on PC ...
Yeah, not counting on it any time soon. GTA V took like 1 and a half years to come from console to pc. I am not a console player, I managed to avoid all spoilers for a year+ The devs said it was an absolute chore to get the engine that Red Dead Redemption game to actually work on the console, used tricks to get it functioning, was apparently a marvel of programming engineering, I believe them. But as they have a new engine they know works on PC, plus a new outlook from GTA V, they know PC users WILL buy the game, GTA V killed it for them. I have no doubt they would at least attempt to bring Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC under their new PC compatible game engine. It just makes sense. And if not. Oh well, I'll just cry into my pillow fir a bit, and wait 10 to 20+ years for emulation software and hardware that can run both Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2! Then I will enjoy this game. I am a patient person.
As long as you keep Microtransactions and loot boxes out of the SP Cinematic experience I’m all in
It will stand on the success of the previous game and its developer which is good enough for me.
i don‘t like online focused games. i don‘t like western/cowboy games. i will wait and see how much dealing with online dudes it will involve. if it‘s too much, like it seems right now, this wallet is not going to open. when i look at the gta series, this also went in a for me intolerable direction. but you all seem to be into this new online/steady moneymaking system. have fun ;)
Day one ish for me and will buy Digital.. and PS4 owners here, hopefully we can play online together :)
