Red Dead Redemption 3 is in development – Claims Rockstar Developer

Red Dead Redemption has become one of Rockstar Games’ leading IPs, and while the game has not proved to be as popular as Grand Theft Auto V, it has generated more than enough profit to justify a sequel. 

Thanks to a Rockstar developer on LinkedIn, who we will not name, Red Dead Redemption III’s development has been confirmed. The developer in question has since edited mentions of “RDR3” out of their LinkedIn profile. The information on this LinkedIn leak came to us via CharlieIntel.

Right now, Rockstar is working on a next-generation version of Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, moving the game to the latest consoles before working on Grand Theft Auto VI. At this time, it is unknown when a true successor to Grand Theft Auto V will be released, as GTA Online’s popularity has remained strong since the game’s launch. 

Take Two’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, called Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption franchise a “permanent” franchise within the publisher’s release schedule. This suggests that there are plans to produce a sequel to Red Dead Redemption II, though it remains to be seen what Rockstar’s plans are. We will likely have to wait for years before we will see Grand Theft Auto VI or Red Dead Redemption III.

Red Dead Redemption II sold well for Take-Two/Rockstar Games, selling over 39 million copies worldwide. Given the popularity of the series, news of Red Dead Redemption III’s development will likely come as exciting news for fans of the franchise. That said, Red Dead Redemption II has a long development cycle, and the same is probably true for its successor. Don’t expect Rockstar to reveal Red Dead Redemption III anytime soon.
