Take-Two Wants Red Dead To Be One Of Their "Permanent" IPs

Um...yes, please!

It seems Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar might be close to announcing a new Bully iteration, but there's another big-time announcement we want even more.

Yeah, Red Dead Redemption 2. And the good news is that according to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, the IP could become a "permanent franchise." Red Dead was mentioned among a group of titles that already have at least one sequel apiece:

"It's been our goal not just to preserve and grow the Grand Theft Auto franchise, but also to build other franchises that we think can be permanent, whether that's the Red Dead franchise or the Borderlands franchise or the BioShock franchise or others, Civilization, for example."

He went on to say that his company's goal is to create enduring, long-lasting franchises, which he considers "unique" in the gaming industry today. Instead of thinking that a series has a certain lifespan, Take-Two would rather see it as...well, undying, kinda like James Bond. This could be seen as a bad thing, but let's not forget that Rockstar and Take-Two rarely put out a disappointing product. We usually have to wait a while but the game is almost always worth the wait.

Besides, RDR sold very well. So why not give us that sequel? Maybe after GTAV is out the door, they'll announce both Bully 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2 for next-gen consoles...and that would so make my day.

I'd prefer they bring Manhunt back to life and make that permanent.

I never finished RDR, I keep waiting for my rotating obsessions to get back around to Westerns but it hasn't happened since the last time it petered out. Same thing happened with Sci fi and ME3.

I kind hope the next one goes with a Billy The Kid type character instead of the grizzled veteran.

Ye bring Manhunt back, one of my fave ever games, the atmosphere in that game is unmatched imo. A next gen version would be sick!

I could care less about Bully...but RDR...now that is a title I would love to see come back; bigger, better, and longer! Same with LA noire!

RDR 2 first, than Bully
if RDR 2 carries on with Jack, i hope they get a better voice actor
for the role. imo, Jack's voice in RDR was so annoying.

wait, so one of the best selling games for the company, and a game that has won multiple game of the year awards, and is still to this day one of the generations highest ranking games, is going to see a sequel?
again i say, stop the presses!
