    Will it ever come?!?

    There are rumors, that it is in works for PS4 and XBOX one, and that they have ben working on the title since quite a while. But official statements are missed.

    Perhaps someone on the forum knows more?

    For me personally it is a must game for the new generation of consoles. I believe the game community is waiting for this and it would sell like hot cakes.

    So is there even a logical reason not to create RDR 2?

    I'd still rather have some sort of single player for GTA V and I don't really agree with the statement that the community is waiting. Whilst they nailed the feel of a Western and the characters to boot, time hasn't been kind to Red Dead. It's such a fucking drag to go back and play.

    Aren't most last generation titles a drag to go back and play?

    Not really, no. I still play Skyrim on the PS3 for my sins. I'd welcome a sequel, or anything set it the old west though.

    I went back to Fallout NV to finish it on 360 recently and it wasn't a drag at all.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is something I am absolutely waiting for. GTA is very, very, average to me and the potential for a good series out of this instead is exciting.

    The first game was fantastic, still is.

    I only just re-bought RDR on sale in December and it really holds up quite well. I think that most of the things you might feel are shonky now are probably the same things people felt were shonky at the time as there's not much about it that has aged badly. It still has a great atmosphere and lots to do. Unfortuntaly I can only get on that 360 now and then so would really appreciate backward compatibility for it so I can get properly stuck in and do some more missions and things.

    Until The Witcher 3 came along, for me, RDR was the first open world game to really nail the sense of a living, breathing world that felt like your presence mattered.

    As beautiful a world as San Andreas was in GTA 5, it still didn't have that amazing feel to it. Maybe that was partially down to the epic story in RDR that really drove you onwards and had one of the most gut wrenching endings to a games story I think we've ever witnessed.

    I can't think of a other title either that I would want as bad as RDR2. Speaking of sequels of course.

    The only question is still. Are the rumors just because of a gaming community who wants this game so bad, or is there really something behind it and it will be released within the next years?

    At one stage I was going back and playing RDR at least once a year. Even though there wasn't much to do beyond staring at the amazing scenery (outside of the story), you never got bored of staring at the amazing scenery.

    It is definitely going to be my old man game of choice moan when i start saying things like 'in my day games were this good' when in reality RDR was and still is probably a one off gem of a game.

    Rockstar said at the time they would be silly not to follow up on RDR's success. That's all they have ever said officially as far as I'm aware, so I imagine it's just a matter of time.

    To be honest I enjoyed the story in GTA5 more than RDR which I found a drag to play at times. But it did have a great world in which to mess around with, and I still vividly remember that sequence when you crossed into Mexico for the first time.

    Not sure if I'd be overly eager for a sequel but wouldn't mind replaying the original again. Maybe when it's on sale again.

    I'm not sure this comment has any basis in reality. Did I miss something?

    I'd quite happily play a new RDR as long as the lead character wasn't Marston's arsehole of a son.

    That's a bit harsh, isn't it? Just because you don't fancy another one doesn't mean no-one else does. I think there'd be quite a few very happy people if they officially announced they'd be doing a new one :)

    I am not looking forward to anything more than an RDR2.

    I also think RDR is still awesome, while Skyrim really hasn't aged that well (neither has Fallout 4, heh)...

    It sold something like 15 million copies. A sequel isn't a question of if, but when.

    Loved RDR but I can't remember the story at all now.

    For me, it was fantastic regarding side missions and mini games!

    I enjoyed the hunting a lot, and liked the casino games you could play. I often don't bother with other games when it comes to games, but RDR nailed these subjects

    RDR is one of the most overrated games of last gen. Fantastic world, but that was it. Missions were basically ride with NPC to area > shootout with horrid controls > ride back to NPC's base > go collect identikit mission from another poorly written NPC on the other side of the empty map > repeat.

    If they ever make a sequel to it, I'll give it a go when it's under a tenner.

    I'd kill for RDR2.

    I loved RDR right from the moment I took a pop-shot at a bird and opened up a world of hunting challenges.

    The tone of the game was second to none, as were the horse animations.... Even now, I'm not sure there has been a better animated horse in a game.

    Yes, this game is crying out for a sequel and yes, everybody would love to buy and play RDR2, which are two good reasons why it'll probably never get made. I mean, when have game developers ever created games people want?

    I'm filing RDR2 under "The Last Guardian", "Shenmue 3" and "Silent Hills" for now.
