Red Dead Redemption


 

An executive from publisher Take-Two Interactive discusses the reception of the Read Dead Redemption 2 reveal for the first time.

Speaking at a MKM Partners event, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick announced that the company was “not shocked, very pleased” about fan’s reaction to the game’s reveal. He added that the game’s reveal trailer amassed more views than the publisher expected, stating “anticipation is enormous.” Zenick also commented on the first game and why the time is right for a sequel.

“The conventional wisdom was of course that a Western wouldn’t work. We took a different point of view, which is that very occasionally Westerns capture the imagination of the public. When we launched Red Dead [Redemption], it did. And those times were right for that. And I think the times are right for a big, sprawling, optimistic view of America again—and that’s not meant to be cute.”

Red Dead Redemption 2, along with its “great story elements and great gameplay elements,” has yet to be detailed outside of what fans can pick up from the reveal trailer. One thing we do know, however, is that the game will feature “a brand new online multiplayer experience.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 is launching in fall of 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game was not confirmed for PC or Nintendo’s Switch, and while an analyst claims it will show up on PC, it is looking less likely for the upcoming Nintendo system.
