A few days ago during a Take-Two financial call, CEO Strauss Zelnick hinted that a follow-up to Red Dead Redemption may be on the way.
Here is what he said:
“Our goal is to try to create permanent franchises, that’s the unique goal in the industry. Our competitors do not see it that way. Our competitors’ view is that our franchise will have a certain life, and at the end of that life, you move onto the next thing, so you better make hay while the sun shines. Our view is to the contrary. The best franchises are permanent franchises.
Outside of our business you can look at James Bond, for example. And it’s been our goal not just to preserve and grow the Grand Theft Auto franchise, but also to build other franchises that we think can be permanent, whether that’s the Red Dead franchise or the Borderlands franchise or the BioShock franchise or others, Civilization, for example.”
As you can see, it looks like we could get a sequel to Red Dead Redemption after all. And it's about time, isn't it? The game was a huge success on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, so I have no idea why they haven't released another one yet.
