At the same time, Roger Clark, the actor who played Arthur Morgan in RDR2, believes that Red Dead Redemption 3 will be completed sooner or later.
After the first official GTA VI trailer debuted to great success earlier this week, the popular actor who plays fan favourite Morgan was asked on X (formerly Twitter) about a possible sequel to Rockstar’s 2018 Red Dead Redemption 2. In addition to being asked about the new part of the franchise, the actor was also asked about what he thinks about the main character in a possible sequel. “I know you worked with Rockstar, and there’s secrets that have to be kept, but do you think there is anything about RDR III, About the foundation of the gang or Arthur will be the main character or side character?” a fan asked Clark on X.
While there’s no confirmation that Red Dead Redemption 3 is in the works or anything else, Clark is pretty confident that Rockstar will release a sequel “one day.”
In his response, the actor added that fans shouldn’t expect Arthur Morgan to be involved, as he says his story has already been told.
“I’m certain we will see RDR3 one day”, Clark wrote on X. “When that will be – I have no idea. Don’t count on Arthur’s involvement either. His story has been told, I feel.”
With the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 and the popularity of its predecessors, it seems likely that Rockstar and publisher Take-Two will release a sequel at some point. However, given the current long development cycles of games – especially Rockstar’s – don’t expect this anytime soon. Just for reference: RDR was released in 2010. The continuation followed in 2018. In addition, GTA V (one of the most successful entertainment products of all time and the second best-selling video game of all time) was released back in 2013. And Rockstar does not plan to release the sequel – GTA VI – before 2025…
I know you worked with Rockstar and there’s secrets that has to be kept, but do you think there is anything about RDR III, About the foundation of the gang or Arthur will be the main character or side character? Please answer even you can’t, A hint or something, and THX 😊.
