Rumor: Red Dead Redemption 2, sequel to 13+ million game, is coming, has co-op

Unpopular Opinion: I just hope the ending is a little better/more choice matters (sorry, was not a fan of the ending even though I acknowledge it was original and different.).

I also hope there is more to do after you beat the game as well as the multiplayer/open world. It was a fun game but after I was done with such a vast world, it was just a little too empty and the MP let a lot to be desired. Though GTA Online is a step in the right direction with a lot more co-op missions and so on which are fun. Though a focus on co-op sounds absolutely awesome for this.

Loving those first page replies. Loved Redemption so a sequel would hasten my purchase of a PS4

Release the original on PC! I want to play it again but can't be bothered by barely held together games anymore!

Well now all we need is someone with a friend at Valve to confirm HL3 and someone at Bethesda to confirm the next Fallout..


At least we are knocking out the list one by one guys!!

That's awesome, let's hope the shooting is actually good and the framerate isn't in the mid 20s.

I hope it is playable without co-op.
Also get that PC version made Rockstar. RDR being stuck in sub720p sub30fps prison for eternity is a crime against gaming humanity.

Fuck, I haven't even started Red Dead Redemption yet. There's so many games I got to complete before the sequels come out!

I need this in my life. Damn if this is real and they include full 4 player co-op in the campaign next gen will have redeemed itself. Imagine riding into town as a 4 man posse and robbing the shit out of banks, stage coaches, and trains. Give it to me Rockstar, my wallet is open on the dresser!

Hopefully they consider femfreq's criticisms in the sequel.

I enjoyed the game but definitely recognize its problematic elements.

They should cash in and work in parallel on a PC version alongside a PS4/XBO remaster of RDR.

They need to fix the shooting or I won't bother. The first game was such a chore to play. And don't get me started on the Mexico chapter. Ugh.

This is exciting. I knew there was no way they weren't making a RDR3 but always nice to hear some sort of confirmation

As much as I loved Red Dead Redemption the first time I played it, the mission structure does not hold up. THe missions are all really bad and almost all of the side characters just jerk John Marston around for 20 hours. The only two characters who are not annoying thorns in Marston's side are Bonnie McFarlane and the famous gunman who retires to Mexico. Every other character is just some moron who Marston has to run errands for for absolutely no reason, over and over again.

My vision for a future Red Dead, if it's sequential, is one where you follow the great migration north following the cattle herding from the South West up to Chicago, and the second half is set in a 1915-1920 Chicago, introducing the character through the meat/cattle/cowboy industry but settling into a crooked government/early organized crime story.

But, if we've learned anything from Rockstars last game, it's that they're unwilling or unable to write a story. So we'll see.
