Today, we are going to be covering the Red Dead Redemption 3 release date and rumors as the next installment to the franchise highly anticipated by fans.
With such big shoes to fill, as they say, Red Dead Redemption 3 has a lot of pressure on it. Rockstar Games will not understate the difficulty of their task in following up on one of history’s most beloved video games. Fortunately for them, they are not being forced to deliver anything under any specific deadline. There is no official Red Dead Redemption 3 release date yet, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. Rockstar Games is well-known for taking its time with its flagship games; it’s conceivable that its prior successes have given them this luxury more than any other game developer.
However, because we don’t have an official statement, it does not imply that we have nothing to go on. There’s a saying that when there’s smoke, there’s fire; and where there’s fire, there’s almost certainly a cowboy with some fine plunder to steal. By paying close attention to the clues, one may actually figure out quite a bit. As a result, we decided to use our sharp eyes to scan the horizon in order to figure out what Red Dead Redemption 3 will be like. And while we’ll do our best to be accurate, it’s worth noting that the bulk of this article is speculation rather than concrete.
Red Dead Redemption 3 release date
The first game in the Western-themed series was released in May 2010, with Red Dead Redemption 2 following in 2018. The first game was a spiritual successor to Red Dead Revolver, and it is the second game in the Red Dead series. On the run across America at the dawn of the modern age, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the epic tale of outlaw Arthur Morgan and his notorious Van der Linde gang. It has been praised by numerous critics and has won over the whole fanbase.
The dates indicate that Rockstar Games needed 8 years to develop the anticipated sequel if our math is correct. Between these two games, Grand Theft Auto 5 was released in 2013. Going by prior behavior, Rockstar Games has a tendency to release an AAA game every three or four years; this suggests Red Dead Redemption 3 or GTA 6 could come as early as 2023…except for GTA Online.
Many of you have been asking about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series.
With every new project, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we've previously delivered. We're pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the series is underway.

Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto Online is a fantastic online game that’s just as fun to play solo as it is with friends. GTA Online has been a big success for Rockstar, and the company appears to be quite pleased with it. They also seem to enjoy remastering their older games. As a result, it follows that future Rockstar AAA games will be further apart than previously. Then there’s the fact that GTA 6 is on the way. In other words, if GTA 6 releases in 2023 and is delayed, we wouldn’t expect Red Dead Redemption 3 until 2026 at the earliest.
Red Dead Redemption 3 rumors
Other than the release date, the setting of the next game is up for debate too. Especially the characters that will be featured in it. So, let us dive in and see what the next installment can bring to the table regarding the characters and the location.
Considering what Rockstar accomplished with Red Dead Redemption 2, it wouldn’t be totally unexpected if they attempted to maintain a link between the previous games’ characters and story. While we know the fates of John Marston and Arthur Morgan, Jack Marston’s future is still undecided. This would be a welcome return to the world we’ve become attached to, while also providing the creators with an opportunity to delve into a historical period of the Wild West that they haven’t previously explored.
Another alternative is to create a new Red Dead Redemption 3 character by mixing in previous installments’ characters. If the team opts for this approach, it’d be fantastic to see a woman in the lead role. True Grit demonstrates that women can be excellent protagonists in Westerns, and it would give Rockstar the opportunity to silence critics who have claimed they are sexist in the past by introducing a playable female character for the first time.
Some speculative pieces have stated that Red Dead Redemption 3 may be set in part, if not entirely, in Europe. This would allow Rockstar to tackle the immigrant problem in a similar manner as they did with Grand Theft Auto 4. From a narrative standpoint, there’s a lot of sense to this concept, but the amount of work it would take to create part of Europe and then relocate the game to the United States might be characterized as self-destructive.
It is also worth considering whether fans of the series, correctly or not, want to play as a European in a game that has thus far been heavily focused on the U.S. Red Dead Redemption 3 will, like its predecessors, take place in a reconstructed version of the United States. This creative choice allowed the developers to pick and choose their favorite parts of the Wild West folklore while avoiding being bound to history or one particular geographic location.
