With Grand Theft Auto 6 cancelled, Rockstar Games is now focusing on Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption has been widely known as one of the best games of the 21st century, but because of the massive success of the Grand Theft Auto series, developer Rockstar Games focused heavily on the action-adventure game series much to the dismay of Red Dead fans.

The game developer originally created an Old West role-playing shooter game with 2004’s Red Dead Revolver but its sequel, 2010’s Red Dead Redemption is what really made a mark to the players with an involving story, a tremendous sandbox and an incredible gameplay that resulted in the amazing gaming experience.

It has been over six years and Rockstar has not made any follow up on the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption and fans has been clamoring for a sequel. However, with the recent rumors that the game developer has no plans yet on making a Grand Theft Auto 6, it looks like it might finally be time for Rockstar to confirm Red Dead Redemption 2 is on the way.

Rockstar is drumming up the hype train recently as earlier today, the developer’s FacebookTwitter and its official website all bore a picture featuring its logo against an old-looking red background, the lines around the “R” faded a little to look like a cattle brand resembling Red Dead‘s cover arts. It may be mysterious to non-Red Dead players, but fans are already making a connection and the anticipation is high.

It is also worth noting that the developer is also making use of the hype surrounding the acclaimed latest sci-fi series, Westworld. It is no coincidence that Rockstar is building momentum for the speculated renewal now that the latest Western series is currently on air on HBO and getting good reviews and high ratings.

Rumors of Red Dead Redemption 2 have  been swirling as of late following when concept art of a new game in the series leaked online and the latest inclusion of Red Dead Redemption became available for download on Xbox One.  That would certainly serve as a perfect way to build up hype for an upcoming sequel.

Although Rockstar has not confirmed anything just yet, all signs point to the Red Dead Redemption sequel coming sooner rather than later. Stay tuned to SportsRageous for more updates about Red Dead Redemption 2.
