Red Dead Redemption was released all the way back in 2010, since then it has gone on to sell thirteen million copies which sparked rumours of a potential sequel. However, it still took Rockstar parent company, Take-Two, a few years to actually bring up the possibility.
Take-Two CEO, Strauss Zelnick, seems to believe that the “Red Dead” franchise is here to stay and that fans will eventually get the sequel they have been hoping for. Speaking at the Cowen and Company analyst conference, Zelnick responded to a question about his company’s “selective” approach to releasing games:
“Consumers want better, not more”, he said. “we’ve launched one new successful franchise every year and I would like to keep doing that particularly because I talk about permanent franchises, but not everything is going to be a permanent franchise.”
“I pretty much know the ones that I can assure you are permanent. It’s obvious that GTA is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that Red Dead is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or Borderlands, for example.”
So by the sounds of it, Red Dead Redemption will make a return some day, although we don’t know when exactly. That said, E3 is right around the corner, which would be a good time to make such a big announcement.

KitGuru Says: I never got around to playing Red Dead Redemption myself but I’ve heard plenty of good things. Would you guys like to see a sequel to Red Dead Redemption? Maybe it will come to PC the second time around.
