If you had been expecting Red Dead Redemption 3 to release sometime soon, then we have some bad news for you.
Ask anybody who keeps a tab on the gaming industry and they will tell you that RDR 3 is not expected to release anytime soon. Several reports, which have emerged in the recent past, have indicated towards Grand Theft Auto 6 being Rockstar Games’ next release. The plans for releasing RDR 3 will, most likely, will be put in place after that.
It must be noted here that there was a gap of eight years between the release of Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2. While the former was launched in the year 2010, the latter had a release in 2018. Looking at the developments at Rockstar Games, the gap between RDR 2 and RDR 3 could be wider.
AccountNGT, an industry insider and leaker, Rockstar Games has planned to release only GTA 6 in the near future. If his claims are to be believed, no other game will be released by the company during the Xbox Series X and PS5 generation. What this implies is that RDR fans will get to play Red Dead Redemption 3 only on a console or on the best gaming laptops under 1500 dollars by the time the next Xbox and PS6 arrive.
In the past, AccountNGT had leaked some media based material related to Star Wars Eclipse much before it was officially announced. He is also remembered for revealing the trailer of an update related to GTA Online a while back. AccountNGT does have a reputation for coming up with reliable leaks or information but there is a chance of him going wrong as well.
Having said that, this particular information provided by the leaker could well be true as many other sources in the past have hinted towards a major delay happening with the release of Red Dead Redemption 3. The way Rockstar Games has worked towards developing and releasing games from the franchise also make us believe in these claims. The Xbox One and PS4 generation, after all, had witnessed the release of just one game (Red Dead Redemption 2) from Rockstar Games.
