Michael Pachter expects very high ratings for Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released in a year but the analyst Michael Pachter has already unbalanced regarding the possible votes for the game, which in his opinion will be incredibly high, although probably on higher than those of GTA V.
These are the words of the well-known financial analyst in an interview with GamingBolt: “Rockstar has a mixed bag of results. So they’ve had games that are not as well received critically, but certainly, I can’t remember a game ever from Rockstar getting a Metascore less than 83 or so. And obviously, games like GTA5 have 97, which probably makes them the highest rated games, maybe Ocarina of Time is higher. But they’re consistently great. Every once and a while, they miss the market, like I think they did with Max Payne 3.”
“Even games like Bully that didn’t have that wide of an appeal, but people loved it. It might not have been for everybody, but those who bought it loved it. And games like Manhunt, maybe a little too gruesome for a lot of people but really well crafted. And Rockstar took credit for LA Noire, but as you know, that was a third party studio. And Red Dead was a Capcom game, if you remember, the very first one- and these guys improved it after getting the rights to it.”
“So I think everything they touch turns out excellent. It’s just hard to forecast commercial performance for newer properties. But this thing has an audience. The last Red Dead did 14 million, I believe. So there are 14 million people since 2010, and 66 million people who played GTA. So 66 million people will absolutely give this a chance. So there’s an open question about how much this will sell, but there’s no question that it will be a phenomenal game. I would not take a bet on a Metascore below 90, and I would take a bet on a Metascore above 92 or 93, because Rockstar are that good.”
What do you think of this statements made by Pachter? Red Dead Redemption 2 will be received well by critics? Will it be able to overcome the star rating of Grand Theft Auto V? Let us know in the comment section below.
