And does Rockstar need E3?

Well I mean, if you want discussion about the subject, it doesn't make much sense for it to be a poll-only topic. Reverted.

 

Also, I don't think Rockstar need it, but given their partnership with Sony is strong as ever, it is more likely we could see something RDR2 related there.

Possibly. Take Two already are listed and have floor space at E3 but if RDR2 was to be shown in anyway it will be during Sony's conference given the partnership for the game. I'd imagine Sony would lean heavily on TT/Rockstar for some sort of footage given they'd like to show third party support for the rest of the year and the PS4 as once again the system with exclusive content like Destiny and Call Of Duty.

Does Rockstar need E3? No but they've supported it over the years since 2001 and while they haven't attended as much recently, so has their output as well.

Just remember that Take Two being listed doesn't mean anything, as they were also listed last year and it was for their business booth and their Mafia 3 booth. Good times of hyping ourselves over the huge Rockstar logo that was outside their business booth.

Maybe just maybe a trailer at Sony's and that's it. It could even be a trailer (second or third) that was already revealed before and Sony would just repeat it again after boosting the PS4 exclusive deal. Microsoft did something similar in E3 2007 when they first showed the second trailer of GTA IV and then boosted the exclusive episodic content for X360. But then again, you can't compare between two large story expansions and pitiful Multiplayer content.

 

My verdict is that RDR2 will not show up in any form as R* will continue holding their own mini E3s on the Newswire.

Another "what will happen" thread. Now please, don't get me wrong! Don't wanna sound rude or act like a smartass or a wannabe mod but why do we need so many threads for basically the same thing: speculation!? I mean we already have...

 

* General chat

* Rumour mill: leaks and speculation

* The prognostication thread

Why not? E3 is just over 3 months away and seems silly to dump every topic in 1 or 2 megathreads.

Plus we can use it during the event to discuss the conferences.

Anyway, I'm semi-optimistic about it appearing in some form at E3. I doubt it will have a floor presentation with demos like Mafia did, that doesn't seem like Rockstar, but conferences are different.

Yes, Rockstar don't need E3 in the slightest, and maybe they don't like attending because of that, but we do know a few things: GTA IV was announced at Microsoft's conference back in the day, and footage of the next-gen versions of GTA V was played during Sony's conference a few years ago. It's also confirmed that Sony have got an exclusive deal with Rockstar for RDR2, with PS4 players able to "earn select online content" first.

This can only tell us that Sony have paid a pretty penny for these exclusives, and they are going to want to use them to their advantage help sell the game on their console. There is no better way to widely market this than via their conference at E3, where almost every gaming media platform will be present as well as many fans like us watching at home. Maybe they won't have footage to show so I don't expect that, but it could easily just be a line about what kind of "content" they will be offering us to plant the seed.

Or maybe we're just thinking too much of it, it might just be a blog post or tied to pre-orders for all we know, but they still bought the rights to market it themselves.

Just explained why. It's again... just speculation if R* will drop any info on day X. Idk about you and maybe I'm just just used to something else when it comes to a forum (i wrote news for almost 3 years for a German PlayStation forum as a mod) but i really don't think this thread was necessary. Also, sometimes threads that are actually interesting get deleted or merged into another thread because "we can also talk about this here, no need to open an extra thread for this". It's totally random and sometimes depends on the mod around if a thread gets closed or not imo. When E3 drops a part of the users will discuss the event in here, another part in the speculation thread and a third part in the general chat. What for? Again, it's all good but i just hope that the Red Dead forum will stay clear and won't transform into a 2nd GTA Online forum.

 

Anyway sorry for being off-topic, that was just something i never really understood in here. As for the topic: I expect a little mention at Sony's press conference but no footage tbh. But who knows...

It helps divide all the discussion. The RDR2 General Chat is used for... well, general chatter about the game and speculation about things that might actually happen, the Rumour mill is for rumours and leaks, and these smaller threads are just hubs to better divide all the discussion and dedicate threads to a certain subject. All of these subjects always seep into the General Chat thread either way, but with these threads, it ends up not being the bulk of it, and if you wish to discuss E3 you can come here, and if you wish to discuss what you expect the game to be only, you can use the prognostication thread.

At first I was hopeful of something similar to what they did with Mafia 3 last year. If you haven't seen it, check it out. Seriously, it looked amazing. However looking at the floor plan for this year and it looks like Take-Two only have about half the space they did last year. Which makes me think that it won't be anything like what Mafia 3 had and instead will be primarily focused on the 2K titles and the likes.

 

If we're still on for the originally planned release date of Fall 2017 then I think we should see something at E3, even if its just Sony showing off the game and spruiking their exclusive content. Obviously I would want more, but Rockstar know that they could release a trailer in the middle of E3 by themselves, and still be one of the biggest talking points of the week.
