Red Dead Redemption will be back but not anytime soon.

According to the newest rumors, Red Dead Redemption 3 is reportedly in the works.

It will take some time for this game to arrive on our consoles, so don’t start honing your revolvers just yet. Official word from the people in charge of production indicates that it will happen soon.

It’s a shame that Red Dead Online is no longer being actively supported.

Red Dead Revolver, a lesser-known video game released in 2004, served as the launchpad for Red Dead Redemption, the popular gaming franchise that popularized the Wild West once more. It took Rockstar six years to make a greater impact on the gaming world with Red Dead Redemption, a game that was so highly regarded that it came to be associated with open-world western action.

Red Dead Redemption 2, which was more of an epic than a game, was launched by Rockstar in 2018 as if always surpassing themselves were a pastime. You would think it would be difficult to envision what comes next after all that grandeur, but Rockstar has never been one to back down from a challenge, even in a world where the word “next-gen” is bandied about like confetti.

At the Jefferies Virtual Global Interactive Entertainment Conference, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar, spoke. He’s officially announced that a revival of the Red Dead Redemption franchise is in the horizon. You should, however, hold off on getting too excited because Zelnick was vague when it came to release dates. So, don’t hold your breath for a double whammy decade that includes both GTAVI and Red Dead Redemption 3.

Prequels are arguably the only way to go for the next Red Dead Redemption title but we’d love to see Rockstar Games surprise us.

As many are aware, Rockstar prioritizes quality above rapid turnaround. Like a fine wine, the company’s philosophy largely relies on letting their games “rest” so that, when they do come back, it’s like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is breathtaking and well worth the wait.

Zelnick paused to draw a comparison between the legendary James Bond film franchise and his company’s blockbuster franchises, which include Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. It will continue if it’s amazing, he declared. Rockstar’s track record shows that it is committed to carefully chosen experiences that prolong the life of their intellectual property, in addition to sequels. In a society where fast food is the norm and burnout is common, they represent the slow-cooking alternative to the microwaveable nibbles.

Nor is that all. Adding gasoline to the fire, a well-known leaker who is better renowned for Marvel and DC leaks than video games said that Red Dead Redemption 3 is “officially in the works.” Although these leaks haven’t been verified yet, fans are making assumptions regarding the forthcoming installment’s appearance. It might very well be a prologue to Red Dead Redemption 2, delving into the early years of the Van Der Linde Gang and the historic Blackwater events.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to Red Dead Redemption, in case you didn’t know.

However, let’s control expectations for those who are holding onto their pearls in anticipation. The development of Red Dead Redemption 2 took eight years from concept to console, so patience will be a gamer’s greatest friend if its successor lives up to the high expectations set for it. Heck, considering how quickly Rockstar pursues perfection, it’s possible that we’ll be seeing this game when the console generation has spun around once more. That in and of itself is not a terrible thing. Due to the history of the game, the amount of time required only guarantees that any new releases will alter the definition of what a game is and can be.

So what’s the main point of this? Red Dead Redemption 3 is on the way, but it will arrive at its own quick speed, unaffected by the fanfare and enhanced by history. It is almost poetic that a franchise with historical roots may teach us a few lessons about the benefits of patience in this day and age of constant demand for the new and the next.

Move forward, gamers; the next frontier is on its way, but not very soon.

Red Dead Redemption is one of the best-selling video game franchises ever even though it’s only two games deep (three, technically, if you include Red Dead Revolver.)

Fans can play Red Dead Redemption on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in the interim. Even while it’s uncertain if a PCport will happen, supporters are undoubtedly eager for one.
