After releasing Red Dead Redemption 2 onto PC, speculation surrounding Rockstar’s next project has begun to ramp up. One of the most likely candidates for Rockstar’s next title is a medieval game, set in Europe. The game is said to be a new IP, and lines up with a Rockstar character artist’s Linkedin profile, as well as hints found within Red Dead Redemption 2.
The rumour started when Rockstar character artist, Pawas Saxena described one of his current roles as “creating modular environment pieces with organic finish carefully following medieval architectural style”.
Rockstar had previously been rumoured to be working on a game with the working title ‘Project Medieval’. That game was allegedly cancelled, although this Linkedin post suggests that the game may have been de-iced. The post has since been edited.
Further evidence towards Rockstar’s next project comes from their latest release, Red Dead Redemption 2 (spoilers for a scene from the game’s epilogue). In the epilogue, John Marston asks Jack if he’s still into books about the Wild West, with Jack responding that he’s more interested in medieval books now – perhaps a tease for Rockstar’s next game.
