Last week we spoke about the demand for Red Dead Redemption 2, with gamers growing increasingly frustrated by the issues regarding GTA V and its online mode. Now, we have some solid evidence to give you on the game with an Red Dead Redemption 2 news update that is sure to put a smile on your face.
We have a sense of feeling that the constant rumors on the game, without any real substance has been hard to take. Red Dead Redemption is a series that remains deep in many hearts, and the news of any potential sequel seems to be far more exciting than anything GTA V-related at the moment.
With this in mind, Research firm Baird Equity Research has gone on record to say that with shareholders in mind, Take-Two are expected to announce Red Dead Redemption 2 at somepoint this year. Not only that, but they also predict that a GTA V PC release date will land in 2014 – an outcome that most of you believe is only a matter of time anyway.
These announcements will help improve revenue and earnings visibility according to Baird Equity Research, but are we really that close to a Red Dead Redemption 2 unveil?
Let’s not forget that we have not even had any major story DLC for GTA V. We at least expect there to be two major pieces of DLC to echo GTA IV, so that may take us all the way until the end of 2014 by the time these are out – that’s not even getting started on GTA V Heists.
One conspiracy theory is also ongoing suggesting that the reason GTA V PC has not been announced yet, is due to the fact that Take-Two also want to put GTA V on PS4 and Xbox One in 2014 too – a move that will surely bring in a lot of money for the publisher and keep Rockstar flat out with duties.
Going back to Red Dead Redemption 2 though, is this the game that you would rather see announced, ahead of GTA V on PC, PS4 and Xbox One?
The analysts have spoken so give us your thoughts below.
