I’m slightly miffed they called it Red Dead Redemption 2. Everyone seems to forget Red Dead Revolver 😦
Yeah, that’s true. But I’d “argue” (but not an actual argument, lol) that part of the “Redemption” in that title for the first game would be it “redeemed” itself over Revolver’s issues. That was a great game and probably a template for Redemption’s bigger focus. THAT said, lol… it would be great to see Revolver pop up at some point as a full on remake… or hell, free DLC added to RDR2. I’m more surprised that it’s announced as console only, but then again, I knooooooooow it HAS to be PC-bound, probably in 2018.
