Red Dead Redemption 2 took many years of development and still needs to comply with all the work involved in its launch. Rockstar knows that this series has a large number of followers, so it does not want to close doors to see one more title in the series.
Dan Houser, the co-founder of Rockstar, recently spoke about the future of the series. During a meeting with Vulture, the creative mentioned that continuing with the franchise is a possibility.
However, he clarified that seeing a new release will depend both on the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 and whether the studio has something more to say about the western game and its complex world. On the subject, Houser commented: “If this one [ Red Dead Redemption 2 ] does well enough and we think we have other interesting things to say.” So, seeing one more game in the series is entirely possible.
However, the team will immediately deal with Red Dead Online, a mode that will debut in November with a Beta and that will surely have support for quite some time.
On the other hand, Houser talked about the approximate duration of the new game. As we told you recently, Red Dead Redemption 2 will last about 60 hours. Houser revealed that in the end they eliminated part of the content, so its initial duration was almost 65 hours.
According to Houser, Arthur Morgan, the protagonist of the game, had several main interests, but one of them did not work very well, so they removed all related quests.
From the perspective of the creative, it was the best decision to remove the missions, because they did not feel natural, since they did not work at a technical level and were somewhat superfluous. As an example, he put a mission on a train, where players would face various bounty hunters.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will debut on October 26 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
