Red Dead Redemption 2 John Marston zombie

Rockstar Games have finally discussed the possibility of Red Dead Redemption 2, stating that news about a prequel or sequel to 2010’s blockbuster open world Western Red Dead Redemption is forthcoming.

To quote the Rockstar Games website answer to fan questions:

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • “Stay tuned for further announcements about the future of the Red Dead series.”

    “Awesome, we love Red Dead too โ€“ and are thrilled that so many of you loved John Marstonโ€™s tale and are excited for more epic Western action. As we mentioned in our last set of Asked & Answereds to similar questions about the future of other game franchises like Bully and L.A. Noire, we donโ€™t always rush to make sequels but that does not mean that we wonโ€™t get to them eventually. Stay tuned for further announcements about the future of the Red Dead series.

    Hmmm, let’s muse this over… Rockstar could turn Red Dead Redemption 2 into a prequel with John still in his old gang, or after the Undead Nightmare DLC they could go to extremes and turn John into a zombie. ๐Ÿ˜† What are your ideas?

    As to where I got the weird zombie idea from, watch the Undead Nightmare final cutscene:

    2016 Rumor Update: Strictly rumors, but it seems the Red Dead Redemption 2 announcement got delayed from E3 2016 to The Game Awards on December 1st, 2016. *fingers crossed*

    Would you like John Marston to return as a zombie in Red Dead Redemption 2?

      No more Zombies. I thought that got a little silly and unrealistic. Go back to John’s roots.

      Rockstar is just full of surprises. I hope they set out to make a sequel to the original game. Where we are Jack Marston, with a different storyline all together. Rockstar could develop a whole new perspective with Jack and a new storyline, which could change the direction of the series.
      As for a prequel, I don’t know… We’ll just be playing another story of John Marston with his old gang, and Rockstar might just throw in some new game features. In my opinion, there’s not many opportunities if they decide on a prequel. Plus, it wouldn’t be as much fun playing a prequel, because John already died in the original.
      Overall, whether they develop a prequel or a sequel, I hope they keep their original western theme in tact which made the first game so popular. It would also be appreciated if Rockstar added some more ‘western-like activities’. I mean I just loved going out on my horse in the wild west and hunting for fur and meat, then selling the goods to the local shop, it made me feel like I was literally in that time era.
      In addition, if you read the statement, Rockstar stated, well implied, that they get to sequels eventually, keyword being ”eventually”. In the statement, they mentioned the Bully series. I pray that they make a sequel for the Bully game. The first game was an amazing success and gamers all around the world loved going to school to beat the heck out of kids, giving chocolates to their loved ones, and, if you’re naughty like me, beating prefects and running away. It looks like we’ll have to wait and see.

      no more zombies…….. let get john back and kick some more *ss and make the map bigger more place to go and see

      Its best if they make a game about johns past cause they left us wondering about his past in the first one . alittle like red dead revolvers begining

      Absolutely…MUST be a prequel. Not only because Jack simply s*cks compared to John (so does anyone else they might have us play as) but the date needs to be a little further back, not forward.

    • Tiggo

      They never announced any such thing…

    • Tiggo

      Jack is already grown up after John dies….And a western needs to be back further, John died in 1911 and that was even a little late

    • Hey Kid

      4 years later, still no sign of the game ๐Ÿ™

    • Rumor had it that the announcement of this shooty shoot game was canceled to be considerate about a nightclub shooting the day before E3 2016 started. A little birdy told me the announcement got delayed to The Game Awards on December 1st, 2016. *fingers crossed*
