Grand Theft Car 5 and Max Payne 3 are Rockstar’s focal factors for that near-future, however the studio has not neglected about Western sandboxer Red Dead Redemption – or for that matter swanky detect ’em up L.A. Noire and Just-William-meets-Hollyoaks escapade Bully.
“Awesome, we enjoy Red Lifeless as well,” gushes a Q&A on Rockstar Newswire, “and are thrilled that so many of you loved John Marston’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 don’t always rush to make sequels but that does not mean that we won’t get to them eventually. Stay tuned for further announcements about the future of the Red Dead series.”
Of L.A. Black sequels, Rockstar had this to say in February: “there won’t be any more DLC or additional content for the current release of L.A. Black (we’re all also busy working on Max Payne three, GTAV and other games to come), don’t count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Black franchise in the long term.
“We simply have not decided anything. We’re all very pleased with how that game turned out and are considering what the future may hold for L.A. Noire as a series.”
And Bully? Once again, never say never. “We absolutely enjoy that over 5 years later, we’re still seeing so much enthusiasm for Bully,” notes a third post. “We actually adore Bully ourselves and may also make a sequel at some point.”
Which would you rather play first – Red Dead Redemption 2, L.A. Noire 2 or Bully 2? I’m game for some more Bully, myself. In fact, I’m going to take this as my cue to invest in the Xbox 360 version.
