5 Reasons Why: Rockstar Should Bench GTA for a Bit

1. Red Dead Redemption 2

It is already being teased ┬áby Rockstar themselves in the Asked and Answer segment on the Rockstar Website, and we would be absolutely flabbergasted if it wasn’t the current title that Rockstar is developing. That being said, because of its popularity, Rockstar is undoubtedly dreaming big with the next game in the beloved franchise. We are sure that an answer to the gaming worlds prayers is coming at some point in 2015, and to a certain extent Rockstar has all but confirmed that in the article as well. Red Dead Redemption 2 is too important to the success of the company because it is an instant cash-cow for the company.

There is not doubt that it will sell, the previous title sold over 13 million copies, and because of that Rockstar isn’t the type to rush a release with that much at stake. We don’t see that many Western-themed games and Red Dead is the creme-del-a-creme when it comes to anything that hits the market. The fans have been yearning for it for quite sometime and it is time for Rockstar to deliver a sequel, even if it means shelving anything else for GTA V or as a franchise in the mean time.

  1. Ugh seriously you know they only realease a gta game once every 5 years since san Andreas.

    2004 Gta san Andreas
    2008 gta IV (tlad and tbogt were expansion and thus don’t really count).
    2013 gta v

    So no don’t shelf it and that san Andreas 2 rumour confirmed fake

  2. Thank you for the comment dapaintrain, the reason for the suggested shelving is because it is unfortunate that we have not seen enough uniqueness from them of late. If you tak into consideration their expansions, and much of it like a stand alone title, that they are due for a few more releases before they bring another GTA out. Yes it’s 5 year bits Red Dead is sue, Bully is due, heck even Max Payne and Manhunt are due. Not just that hit the need for something like a LA Noire game should be there before GTA. Rockstar needs to get new stuff pimping from them again. Hence the suggestion. Thanks again for the comment and keep tuning in!!

    • Enough Uniqueness? Every Entry in the GTA series can be considered a Unique experience.. and many of them take place in a completely different city each time. They also changed the way the game works a lot this time around for GTA V. They incorporated more than 1 person in the storyline, blended it beautifully and also meshed a very solid online play. I really don’t see how you consider them to not be innovative. They also have several studios working out of Rockstar.. They have a lot of solid series, and it is rumored that they are coming out with a new Red Dead Redemption for this new gen.

      Rockstar also has an exclusive Sony game that they will announce sometime soon.. I mean it has been quite awhile since they said something about “Agent”, and I’m guessing it will be cancelled or changed into a different game.. Regardless they still owe PS an exclusive.. so expect to see that sometime soon. Maybe E3?
