I do not want Jack Marston!


But "we have not decided" about L.A. Noire, Bully sequels

Grand Theft Auto 5 and Max Payne 3 are Rockstar's focal points for the near-future, but the studio hasn't forgotten about Western sandboxer Red Dead Redemption - or for that matter swanky detect 'em up L.A. Noire and Just-William-meets-Hollyoaks escapade Bully.

"Awesome, we love Red Dead too," gushes a Q&A on Rockstar Newswire, "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."

Of L.A. Noire sequels, Rockstar had this to say in February: "there won't be any more DLC or additional content for the current release of L.A. Noire (we're all too busy working on Max Payne 3, GTAV and other games to come), don't count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future.

"We simply have not decided anything. We're all very pleased with how that game turned out and are considering what the future may hold for L.A. Noire as a series."

And Bully? Once again, never say never. "We absolutely love that over 5 years later, we're still seeing so much enthusiasm for Bully," notes a third post. "We really love Bully ourselves and may also make a sequel at some point."

Which would you rather play first - Red Dead Redemption 2, L.A. Noire 2 or Bully 2? I'm game for some more Bully, myself. In fact, I'm going to take this as my cue to invest in the Xbox 360 version.
