Red Dead Redemption 2: Upcoming Game Pitted Against GTA 6
Both Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA 6 are upcoming Rockstar Games titles. Due to the excitement for both these games, it is only normal for avid gamers to compare the two. Due to the massive success of Grand Theft Auto V, however, it seems that Grand Theft Auto 6 may steal some of the Red Dead prequel’s thunder.
Red Dead Redemption 2 vs Grand Theft Auto 6
While the next Red Dead Redemption game is already a surefire success, Rockstar Games does not see it reaching the sales of Grand Theft Auto V, according to NSEA Voice. It seems that the developer instead reserves the heavy expectation of massive success on the GTA 6.
After all the latter broke records and became the world’s top-selling entertainment product. The sales were so high, in fact, that Rockstar Games has not put out any new IP since 2013. GTA 5 more than made up the $265 million price tag in its development by earning more than $6 billion.

It is the second RDR2-related mission on the online game. Last December, a Double-Action Revolver was already unveiled.
The Red Dead Redemption prequel will be officially released on Friday, October 26. It will arrive on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There is still no word as to when Grand Theft Auto 6 finishes development.
