Take-Two has a long history of being heavy-handed with projects based on its franchises. The most recent legal battle is with developer Jonathon Wyckoff, who was working on Red Dead Redemption Damned Enhancement Project.

PC gamers were not happy when RockStar decided to forego the PC launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) right out of the gate. The move was no surprise, however. Rockstar game fans know that the developer will eventually launch RDR2 on the PC, it just wanted to wait until the fuss for the game on the console platforms dies down, and then port it to the PC to spur sales for a second time.

"I know this is a hard pill to swallow, but as you may have noticed we did get contacted," a modder who goes by the name Mr. Leisurewear stated on GTAForums.com. "And we sadly have to say we are stopping this project. So thanks guys, we were... Read more...

After publishing two teasers over the weekend that had obvious nods to a sequel in the Red Dead franchise, Rockstar Games today confirmed the development of Red Dead Redemption 2. According to the developer, Red Dead Redemption 2 is on target for a Fall 2017 release, but given its past track record, we should probably tack on at least a few months onto the launch window just to be on the safe side.

It’s been six years since Red Dead Redemption first hit store shelves, and gamers have been clamoring for a sequel to the hit shooter ever since. Rockstar Games has kept mostly silent about the next installment in the franchise, which began with Red Dead Revolver’s uneventful release in 2004 — that is until this past weekend.
