Remember when Rockstar used to pump out games every two years or so? I remember.
Yeah, I know it's not possible these days due to increased game dev complexity. I just miss those days.
Btw, any news of RDR2 next-gen patch? I've been holding off from playing it for a long time now.
i can't see GTA VI being anywhere near as successful at GTA V. i know the post said about Dan leaving but don't forget about Leslie Benzies. he was very important to GTA. dan might've been the guy at the top of Rockstar but Leslie was the one in Scotland running Rockstar North which is the studio that does GTA games.
rockstar have a shit load of money and can get the worlds most talented developers/writers/managers,etc. who wouldn't want to work on a GTA game? so yeah i'm not saying GTA VI will be a failure. it could be utter shit and still sell a fuck load of copies. for GTA VI to be more successful than GTA V it needs to become the 2nd best selling video game of all time. i think it's at ~150m copies sold so far and that's not even including upcoming current gen versions.
i don't think we'll see anything the on level of GTA V and people will need to keep realistic expectations which is too hard for a lot of gamers apparently.
The guys on Rockstar Mag says at the end "I really want playing Red Dead Redemption 2 again, but I can't because I know the PS5 & Series X versions are comming".Btw, any news of RDR2 next-gen patch? I've been holding off from playing it for a long time now.
In an alternate universe, Sleeping Dogs 2 launches to rave reviews, incredible sales, and firmly established a contender to the throne. Alas, we are stuck in the darkest timeline, where GTAVI needs to be “mainstream” when it’s predecessor has sailed past 100 million copies sold.
You’d need an enormous budget for that, and every company that has that kind of budget would face the same scrutiny as a new GTA in this day and age, only it couldn’t even use the GTA pedigree as a shield. It’s just asking for social media trouble, even if the game turned out to out-GTA GTA.I keep saying the time has never been better for somebody to come in with a GTA killer but nobody is stepping up to the plate
"Excuse me sir, may I borrow your electric powered car? Thank you! Oh you left your bottle of soy milk in the car. What a pleasant surprise! Now I will have something to drink as I finish this gender change mission at the local hospital!"Sadly those weirdos have a louder voice than the rest of the world. A politically correct gta, imagine that lol. The end of the world is just around the corner
Benzies was hugely important to R* and they fucked themselves over long term by fucking him over post GTA5.
I’m reminded of this snippet on RDR …..
Rockstar was struggling with the development of Red Dead Redemption before Leslie Benzies was drafted in to save it.That's the claim, as reported by - MCV/DEVELOPwww.mcvuk.com
The Housers were Rockstar. They left the building and here we are. I bet there's a power vacuum that's trying to be filled with infighting while corporate is trying to milk the corpse.
True, i'm pretty sure they will make it work and the end.Before RDR2 came out there were plethora of "insider" scoops that the game was in development hell, everything was a mess, the game was going to be terrible and look how that turned out.
So I'm not pushing the panic button just yet.
Well, they want to cater to a small section of the public, who most likely won't even play the game while pissing off the rest. A genius strategy.Western gaming industry continuing digging their own hole.
That being said super excited for RDR remaster, and hopefully Mexico will be added to Red Dead Online alongside!!!
