During a Take-Two Interactive Quarter 3 Earnings Conference Call today, the publisher confirmed that the ‘online offering’ for Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a major focus. Take-Two CEO, Strauss Zelnick, didn’t go into any further details other than to confirm that there was ‘great anticipation’ surrounding the Wild West sequel, and that Rockstar will announce more details in the future.
Could Red Dead Redemption 2 mimic GTA Online’s multiplayer?
Though, in a response to a shareholder’s query about whether or not Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Redemption 2’s upcoming online portion could co-exist, Zelnick did say that entertainment was a desire, not a need, and as a result, ”avid fans will consume everything they want.”
You can expect Rockstar Games to not abandon its online cash cow in the form of Grand Theft Auto with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, so.
He confirmed that Red Dead Redemption has life-time sales of 15 million units, but in a Q&A session didn’t want to predict sales for the sequel and whether it would surpass the original.
Earlier today, Take-Two confirmed that the Red Dead Redemption 2 release date will be in Fiscal 2018, which could be anytime between October 2017 and September 2018.
