Is a Red Dead Redemption Sequel Coming?

========

 Take-Two has listed Red Dead Redemption among franchises it considers "permanent", heavily implying a sequel to the game will one day materialise.
Speaking at last night's investor call (via Videogamer), CEO Strauss Zelnick explained that the company didn't see any of its franchises as one-shots, and that new instalments of a high quality were always encouraged.
"Our goal is to try to create permanent franchises," he said. "That's the unique goal in the industry.



Franchises that we think can be permanent, whether that's the Red Dead franchise or the Borderlands franchise or the BioShock franchise or others.



"Our competitors do not see it that way. Our competitors' view is that our franchise will have a certain life, and at the end of that life, you move onto the next thing, so you better make hay while the sun shines. Our view is to the contrary. The best franchises are permanent franchises.
"Outside of our business you can look at James Bond, for example. And 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."
We last heard mention of a Red Dead Redemption sequel over a year ago, when Rockstar explained it was keen to revisit the series, though no timeline for further announcements was given. Seeing as the game has sold 13 million copies in two years, it'd be astonishing if another entry didn't materialise at some point.


In case you missed it, the earnings call last night also revealed BioShock Infinite and Borderlands 2 have sold 4 million and 7 million units respectively. Seeing as they're also mentioned as part of the permanent franchise spiel, expect further entries in both series at some stage.

Both Red Dead games were fun and with one being released on each of the last two gen of consoles I wouldn't be surprised to see one for the next gens.  And I would probably play the crap out of it.
