Take-Two CEO Hints at Red Dead Redemption 2

Good evening everyone

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick hinted at the possibility that Red Dead Redemption could be a franchise.


During a recent earnings call, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick teased that Red Dead Redemption could be a potential franchise.

"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 Borderlands franchise or the Bioshock franchise or others, Civilization for example.

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."

Red Dead Redemption was released back in May 2010 to nearly universal praise, it was a spiritual successor to 2004's Red Dead Revolver, which Rockstar Games purchased from Capcom in 2002 after the game was cancelled.

If Red Dead does return, it could be one of the new next-generation games Take-Two currently has in development.


Ohhhhhh PLEASE!


Man I fell in love with Red Dead Redemption when I first played it back in my Sophomore year in High School, went out to buy it at Wal-Mart and it was the last copy available to!

Imagine a next-gen Red Dead, simply imagine a next-gen game on the PS4 and Xbox One.

Gamescom is next month so hopefully we get an announcement for Red Dead Redemption 2.

Thanks for reading everyone.
