Red Dead Redemption 2 bids farewell to Rockstar Games


It looks like Rockstar Games is indeed leaving Red Dead Redemption 2 behind, as the developer continues to make rather large moves. Red Dead Redemption 2 is arguably Rockstar’s biggest game to date in terms of scope and scale due to its dense world, long and rich history, and a wealth of open-world activities. Rockstar even tried to emulate the success of GTA online with Red Dead online, a mode that never really took off in the same way and was unfortunately confirmed to be pretty much dead going forward. It’s still receiving small updates and the servers will remain online, but Rockstar has confirmed that it won’t have any major content drops like GTA online forward.

As such, Rockstar Games has updated its list of credits for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead online within the game. The listing now opens with the following message: “Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped create Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.” While this could simply be a way to accurately reflect everyone who worked on the game after it was released, many speculate that this means Red Dead Redemption 2 is really over. A similar list was published for GTA online just a few days ago, and while it wasn’t sure what this meant, these sudden updates have many speculating that Rockstar is shifting all of its focus to Grand Theft Auto VI. Rockstar has already confirmed that the game is happening and that it’s been in development for a while now, but no one knows when we’ll see it, let alone when it might release. If Rockstar really does some housekeeping on older projects to prioritize Grand Theft Auto VImaybe we’ll hear something soon.

There is a chance Grand Theft Auto VI could be revealed next month ahead of Take-Two’s next earnings call, something that has historically happened with other Rockstar reveals. The sudden acknowledgments of the game throughout the year have also led many to believe that Rockstar plans to reveal it sooner rather than later, otherwise breaking their silence wouldn’t make much sense. Only time will tell, but Rockstar seems to be planning something.

Do you think Grand Theft Auto VI be revealed this year? Let me know in the comments or hit me up Twitter @Cade_Under.
