With sales of 6.9m for the recently released Red Dead Redemption, you can bet your horse on the fact that work on the next game in the series is well underway – and MCV was recently told what it’s called.
Speaking to MCV under strict conditions of intoxication, one employee of a services provider currently working on some early technical work for the game casually referred to it as Red Dead Revolution.
Before brushing the comment aside and pretending that nothing had happened.
The name, if correct, certainly sits in with previous treatment of the brand. Those of you with long memories will remember that prior to the official announcement of Red Dead Redemption, many were referring to the game as Red Dead Revolution.
And just prior to the release of the last title, Rockstar released a trailer for the game called – yes, you guessed it – Revolution.
Official confirmation of the name is unlikely to emerge this side of Christmas, so it’s likely to be a long wait to find out how accurate our wine-supping friend has been.
