Or 9...

"We are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer."

 

***Waits to the very last day of summer to announce a reveal coming a week later***

 

Yeah this is just one of many examples with Rockstar, at best sometime in March we'll hear something....at best...

What? "Another trailer.." You say it like it's a bad thing :D

Oh no, don't get me wrong, not at all! But a lot more just sounds like a GI cover story imo. A trailer would be awesome of course, but I think it's really time that we get some specific gameplay Information in the form of an in-depth magazine preview.

When R * announced the new versions of L.A Noire last September they used the term "In the coming weeks" to divulge more details. These new details only arrived in late October with a trailer of the game (October 26).

I think at some point in March we'll get some RDR2.

Is it wrong of me to expect a series of trailers like they did with the original one? I loved these.

I would also like a series of gameplay, but I think we will have only one video showing everything in the game (just like they did in GTAV).

I think RDR had several videos because R * wanted to show that the game was something completely new and more ambitious than Revolver.

I wouldn't expect these until the last 2-4 months before release. I'm praying they bless us with gameplay next, but it's unlikely considering how we're still a ways from release.

99.9% sure that the next info will be a GI cover.

I agree, that or an IGN preview.

After all, what other great game could be the cover? What do we have at the end of the year besides Metro Exodus? Until E3 arrives we do not have as many AAA arriving in the fall apart from RDR2 and Metro.

How many people actually believe R* when they say "the coming weeks?" I know we've been burnt before, but I think I actually believe them this time. I feel pretty good about early-mid March.

A month is about four and a half weeks, so ... I believe in Rockstar.

Theres still quite a few games coming still that are expected to arrive this year. Days Gone and Spider-Man are expected to get a release date soon and both are fairly anticipated games. Spider-Man especially.

I don't think it's wrong to expect that at all. I expect some sort of series at least.

I know! Man this is gonna be a great year for gaming but a tough one for my wallet. I'm still hoping Spider-Man and days gone get dates for the spring/summer (which at this point I highly doubt) because I am equally hyped to play both games. they look f*ckin amazing. But if they get released during the same time frame of RDR2 and I can only choose to play one right away, after eight years of waiting its gonna be RDR2 hands down. Then I'll move on to the others later on.

 

Which is why I'm sure every major dev that had a game out this fall (announced or not) is sh*tting major bricks since R* made their announcement.

Yeah, 2018 is looking like one of the best years in gaming in recent history. I'm pretty sure Spider-Man is coming out in Summer. A Marvel employee said he's sure he'll be fired if Spider-Man comes out near Red Dead Redemption 2 (He's actually a fan too). Shawn Layden said that all of their games planned for 2018 are going to be released in the first half of the year, so there's that too. On a side note: I can NOT wait for this year's E3. It's going to be amazing.

Hmm that's interesting. I have to admit as hyped as I am for Spider-Man and days gone (partly the reason why Im buying a ps4 this year.) RDR2 is the only game where I'm following the development super-closely.

Actually I think it's the only game I've ever followed this close usually I'll just see a trailer for a new game hear the release date and that's it. So I didn't know any of that info with the marvel employee and Shawn layden. So thanks! Appreciate it.

 

That's pretty hilarious that a marvel employee actually said that.

It just goes to show what kind of impact Rockstar has on the market when releasing a new title.

Pretty crazy when you think about it.

E3 this year should be great, Spider-Man PS4, Ghost of Tsushima, Days gone, hopefully TLOU2. Is Days Gone suppose to release this year tho? Sony has so many games coming out it ridiculous. Xbox really needs to go for the gusto in terms of games or I'm giving up on Xbox.

No worries about TLoU PII. Neil said it's going to be at E3 with Gameplay a couple of months ago during their PSX Panel. Yeah, Days Gone is planned for 2018.

DexMacLeod: Thanks man.

 

2K unlike sister company R* is always at every game convention [except for last year]. Their owner and parent company Take-Two was just there last year. Anyhow, I have a feeling Ghost Story [formerly Irrational Games] will have a new game out as well.

We're all going to be not surprised when the next trailer is a breathless, hyped-up, high pressure sales pitch for all the amazing PvP modes in Red Dead Online. Rockstar probably figures they've given us enough story footage already.

The Nefarious

 

I pray every day that Rockstar will not become a company of only two franchises, even if they take years to do another GTA or RDR, this will become tiring over time.

I mean R * has so many incredible titles that it could bring back that gap between a new GTA.

A Bully 2 needs to happen, a Manhunt 3 would be welcome to complete a trilogy, a new IP as Agent could be reborn and why not a Table Tennis 2?

It would be cool if they rebooted Manhunt. Not like a third game in a trilogy but a new stand alone title like Redemption which contains similar themes and elements but is otherwise separate from the previous two titles. Even if they leased out the IP to another studio. To me Bully is a game that belongs in the past like Beaterator or State of Emergency.

I hope going forward Take-Two cut that Royality crap, lol funny how they pay two brothers a lot for the franchises they own. And if they exit replace them with execs from Sony's Guerilla or Zenimax's Bethesda.

I'm expecting a lot of bugs and glitches for online the day it launches. It happened when GTA online launched and probably will for Red Dead online for like a couple days it will be a nightmare.

At least I hope they learned how to handle a cloud-based multiplayer system so people don't catastrophically lose all their progress a few days in like GTA Online.That happened to me day 1 of GTA Online. It's weird though because everyone mostly spawned up near the Vinewood sign (the tutorial) was somehow bypassed at first.

 

I agree though. This time around (and especially due to this second delay which is time to really get in there) that I'm sure Rockstar are trying to not make that happen again and will try to get a steady smooth experience day 1 of multiplayer (hopefully) as well.

I have no problem with an honor meter, as long as the story is written in a way where it makes sense regardless of whether or not I'm good or evil, my problem with RDRs honor system is it didn't really make sense given johns story.

 

Now if we can play Arthur as either a cold hearted badass or an honor-bound Robin Hood, is love that for replay value.

 

Also I agree on the wanted system, GTAVs was absolute garbage. I hope they bring back the ability to surrender. It was almost impossible to get arrested in V they'd rather shoot you. I'd be happy with a newer more fleshed out version of RDRs wanted system. I loved that you could lose the cops and they could still find you later on. I hope that returns in a big way. I'd love to be hiding out in the woods after a big heist, always on edge because a bounty hunter could be around any corner.

Again, this is Red Dead. Not GTA. :panic:

 

The honor system is most likely returning (since it's a Red Dead game) and the game is being built from the ground up remember!
