How big is the hype for RDR2?

Recommended Posts


I always think it's kind of hard to assess how big the hype is for new games. If you look at the activity in this particular forum section you can clearly see that the hype is nowhere near GTA V - but I don't think anybody expected that either. However people seem much more stoked to play this game than they were for other "recent" Rockstar titles (such as Max Payne 3 and LA Noire).


But how popular is Red Dead Redemption 2 compared to other games being released next year?

Like you said Red dead Redemption as a whole isn't on the same level as GTA of course because, well almost every gamer/non gamer has heard or played GTA.

However, I believe there is still a lot of excitement regarding RDR2 still, even more so because Rockstar haven't released much information about it yet and people are still anxiously waiting to know more. that alone builds hype. It also allows gamers that specifically aren't interested in RDR2 to get a glimpse of what Rockstar are capable of on CG Consoles.

What I think makes Red Dead seem more appealing than LA Noire or Max Payne for example, is because it has the same formula and concept as GTA, which everyone likes.

Regarding other games, RDR2 is no doubt one of the most anticipated games of 2018, I would personally put up there with the Last of Us part II.

Defiantly not on the level of GTAV obviously due to how long the game has been around but for 2018 Red dead redemption 2 is the most anticipated game of 2018. almost every topic I've seen talk about "most anticipated games of 2018" usually has RDR2 as the cover art and has RDR2 placed as number 1.
