10 Ways Rockstar Should Make Red Dead Redemption 2

Of all the developers in the world, Rockstar have PLENTY of games to pull from.

Did you realise Rockstar's last game (GTA V) released way back in 2013? You wouldn't know it thanks to GTA Online raking in $5 million dollars every day, encouraging Rockstar to keep plugging content into a seemingly never-ending payment model, but this is the most time the company have ever taken between releases, putting all focus and impetus on Red Dead Redemption 2 to be well worth the wait.

Though, with the general consensus surrounding the idea of revisiting something that ended so definitively, comes the need to justify a sequel from top to bottom. Assumedly that's why Rockstar elected to do a prequel, moving away from the Marston bloodline and focusing on what it was like to live at a time when the stereotypical American Wild West was transitioning into the oil-fuelled industrial boom of the 1900s.

Such a setting is ripe for opportunities to flesh out various characters and motivations from the first game, and we already know - thanks to the latest trailer - that Dutch's Gang will feature prominently. Still, with the game being delayed into 2018 and zero in-game footage revealed, there are a TON of features up in the air that could go one way or another.

Let's hope they get it right.
