'Red Dead Redemption 3' Is Coming, Rockstar Parent Company Confirms

'Red Dead Redemption 3' Is Coming, Rockstar Parent Company Confirms

Red Dead Redemption 3: Look Who’s Yee-Hawing Now

We’re not done playing in the Red Dead Redemption universe just yet, according to Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive. 

The critically acclaimed western franchise started life way back in 2004 with the lesser-known Red Dead Revolver. It was 2010’s Red Dead Redemption that catapulted the series to new heights, before 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2 floored everyone with its stunningly detailed open world and heartbreaking story. 

Given the eight-year wait between the last two games, it’s unclear when Red Dead Redemption 3 might launch - or how on Earth Rockstar Games can begin to top Red Dead Redemption 2. Still, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has assured fans a new entry is coming… eventually. 

Speaking with the Jefferies Virtual Global Interactive Entertainment Conference (thanks, VGC), Zelnick compared his company’s major franchises - including Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto - to James Bond, in that they’ll keep going for many, many years to come. 

"If it's really, really great, it will keep going," the CEO said. "I don't know if you saw it, I just saw the new Bond film, that was great. You would like every franchise to be James Bond. There are precious few entertainment franchises of any sort that fall into that category, but they do exist. And I think GTA is one of them, I think Red Dead is one of them, NBA is obviously one of them because the game will continue to exist.”

While it’s nice to hear Red Dead Redemption will continue, Zelnick stressed that it’ll be a long time between entries. He reasons that’s part of what makes Rockstar single-player games so special. 

"It also requires you to be thoughtful and willing to rest the titles, so you have a sense of, 'wow, this is a rare event,'" Zelnick explained. "I've always said that annualizing non-sports titles runs the risk of burning out the intellectual property, even if it's good. So we take the time to make something we think is incredibly phenomenal, and we also rest titles intentionally so that there's pent-up demand for that title, so it's a special event."
