Red Dead Redemption 2 rumors gather pace as Take-Two confirms ‘unannounced projects’ in the works

Take-Two announced this week during its latest financial briefing that the studio has more unannounced titles in development, fueling more hope that a sequel to Red Dead Redemption could be in the pipeline.

Not only that, but the publishing behemoth specifically mentioned the ‘action-adventure’ in regards to said new projects, a category that Red Dead Redemption 2 would fit into rather neatly.

Elsewhere, Take-Two also confirmed that it is looking into virtual reality gaming, though wouldn’t say outright if it was working on projects for devices such as PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift. 

The original Red Dead Redemption was released in May 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox One, and picked up rave reviews from critics. It also proved a massive commercial success for Rockstar and Take-Two, selling over 14 million copies worldwide as of August 2015

In addition to the main campaign and multiplayer mode, Rockstar also supplemented Red Dead Redemption’s Wild West antics with a zombie-themed spin-off, Undead Nightmare, which could be purchased separately or as downloadable content. 

Rumors of a sequel to Red Dead Redemption have been circulating for years now, particularly since Take-Two referred to the IP as a ‘permanent franchise.’ Initial reports suggested a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release complete with co-op gameplay, and Rockstar later chimed in on the matter, stating that a follow-up is down to a matter of timing.

Speculation on Red Dead 2 continued to gather pace after Take-Two continued to hint at more unannounced games from established franchises, and most recently, a former Rockstar employee said that the sequel is indeed in development. Nothing official has been confirmed as of yet, however.
