Red Dead Redemption 2 inevitable as original hits new milestone

Rockstar Games has confirmed that Red Dead Redemption has now shipped more than 14 million copies worldwide since its release in 2010, stating that the game “rejuvenated the western entertainment genre”.

The figure was revealed via a shareholder outreach document provided by Take-Two Interactive to the U.S. government. With such high numbers behind the popular wild-west adventure, it’s inevitable that a sequel will be made.

Nevertheless, Red Dead Redemption 2 has yet to be announced. Industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that Rockstar is currently working on a new IP before if even considers a sequel, though Ubisoft (of all random people) did appear to leak details of Red Dead Redemption 2 in a recent survey.
