Red Dead Redemption 2 has been in development for 8 years

The sequel to Rockstar's Western began development shortly after the original Redemption ended.

Rob Nelson, one of the CEOs of Rockstar North, has spoken with the North American portal IGN, in statements collected by our colleagues in the Spanish division, in which they explain how Rockstar is improving the open world genre and, in addition, explain some interesting ins and outs about the development of Red Dead Redemption 2 .


"I think that when we finished the original Red Dead Redemption we were already clear about the story we wanted to tell with the sequel," explained Nelson, who assures that the development of the continuation began in 2010 when the first part was released. These types of maneuvers are common for large-scale video games, with part of the team advancing on a new installment and the other part developing downloadable content such as the brilliant Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare that was released just a few months after the adventure. by John Marston.


Why did it take so long to appear then? The eight years of development have turned into an unusually great adventure even for the usually gigantic prisms of Rockstar, parents of the GTA saga. "We wanted to create a more detailed, immersive and interactive world than we would have done before," explained Nelson, who assures that all the internal teams of the company itself have ended up collaborating on the video game.
