Red Dead Redemption 3 'open-world map' concept includes Mexico and South America

Red Dead Redemption 3 'open-world map' concept includes Mexico and South America

Yee haw indeed

Ask most gamers which Rockstar game they're excited for and the answer will probably be GTA VI. Ask someone cool, however, and they'll tell you it's Red Dead Redemption 3.

As I'm sure you've probably heard by now, Red Dead Redemption 3 is coming at some point. Probably not a huge surprise, given Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most popular games ever made, but nice to know all the same.

Take a look at some of the best Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails below!

Speaking with the Jefferies Virtual Global Interactive Entertainment Conference last year (via VGC), Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick compared his company’s major franchises - including Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto - to James Bond, in that they’ll just keep going forever.

Zelnick did stress that we'll be in for a long wait for the next Red Dead, however. Considering GTA VI is still a few years away at least, that's not too shocking.

"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."

While we wait (possibly years) for more news on Red Dead Redemption 3, fans are already desperately imagining what the game could look like, where it could be set, and who could star.

One Reddit user has actually put together a really impressive open-world map concept that's left fans stunned. This open world would extend far beyond the Wild West, bringing in much larger parts of Mexico and South America, even incorporating the island of Guarma from Red Dead Redemption 2.


It's a hugely ambitious bit of work, and were Rockstar to actually use something like this for inspiration, let's just say it'd take a long old time to travel from one end of the map to the other. But, you know, for now let's maybe just focus on GTA VI.
