10 Things GTA 6 Can Learn From Red Dead Redemption 2

Though you're likely still neck-deep in the life-consuming wonder that is Red Dead Redemption 2, there's no question that Rockstar is already hard at work on their next game, Grand Theft Auto 6.

While we may not end up seeing GTA 6 hit stores until as late as 2022 - giving the next generation of consoles a couple of years to build a market - Rockstar's latest does already give fans some insight into how their new title is probably coming together.

It's fair to say that the two franchises are very different despite their obvious tonal and stylistic similarities - GTA 6 will never be able to match RDR2's bond between man and horse, for instance - but clearly GTA 6 would do well to learn some lessons from the epic western sequel's development.

On one hand RDR2 is a massive improvement over GTA V in many key areas, and in other aspects the game is still beholden to many of the nagging legacy Rockstar problems.

By listening to the feedback both good and bad, Rockstar could make their next-gen debut their most startling, polished and accessible open-world actioner yet...
