I loved Red Dead Redemption. I don’t say this all that often but I think it might be one of the best games Rockstar has delivered to date. I mean am I wrong? It’s surely got to be up there.
That’s why I’m particularly excited about this little tidbit from the good people at Rockstar.
Apparently in the recent Q&A session with Rockstar, in which they revealed screenshots for Grand Theft Auto V, they were also pressed to respond to questions regarding the Red Dead franchise and came back with this:
“We love Red Dead too – and are thrilled that so many of you loved John Marston’s tale and are excited for more epic Western action. As we mentioned in our last set of Asked & Answereds to similar questions about the future of other game franchises like Bully and L.A. Noire, we don’t always rush to make sequels but that does not mean that we won’t get to them eventually. Stay tuned for further announcements about the future of the Red Dead series.”
Wait, what was that last part? So you’re saying that there are going to be future announcements and that we should stay tuned to get them? Wouldn’t ‘staying tuned’ imply immanency, as in ‘stay tuned we’ll be right back after these messages’? How long are the messages?!
While this isn’t exactly what you’d call an official announcement, it’s certainly a huge hint at one. It might not exactly be a surprising hint either, what with how well received the original Red Dead Redemption was received by almost everyone.
We will be watching, Rockstar, and probably without blinking so please do make an official confirmation announcement sooner rather than later!
