Rumor has it Rockstar San Diego, those behind the cracking good Red Dead Redemption, are working on a new project set to “blow gamers away”.

Now, before you get too excited over it being Midnight Club or more RDR DLC, according to AllAboutTheGames, who are privy to this juicy nugget, it’s something entirely new and will likely use the Rage engine since it created it and was used for GTA IV.

Of course, there’s no word on what the title is and it’s likely Rockstar will remain tighter than a duck’s ass regarding information on it until it’s damn good an ready. Still, if the San Diego end is truly working on something new, it will be something to take notice of. Fact.

Like Rockstar would be working on anything less than mind blowing anyway. Well, maybe something where you can blow minds out of heads or something.

Be a dear and hit the link for more information.

    Red Dead easily being my Game of the Year, means I am obligated to be excited.

    Red Dead Redemption was a fine game though, it did a lot of things really well, but it just didn’t hit the spot for me. I couldn’t make myself like the characters, and it seemed like it had been in production for maybe a few months too long (when you put a full poker game in there – You got some time to spend).

    I miss the San Andreas/Bully days. Actually the Vice City/Bully days. That was some quality mischief. Today it’s all serious and realistic, where’s the fun and chaos?

    I think my game of the year is… Minecraft A 1.12.01 (It counts, yes it does!)

    @7 Oooopps. I love the laptop delay on my paste and delete. It should have been more or less this:”….developed the Rage engine which is used “in almost all Rockstar Games” and GTA IV”

    There. :D

    Well, I’ll be interested in anything these guys do after Red Dead. Unfortunately it’ll probably be about five years before we get to see it based on past performance. :-|

    Whatever happened to Bully 2? It was rumoured ages ago and then…. nowt.

    Is it Agent? If not, who the fuck is working on it & why haven’t we heard a damn thing for over a year?!

    Red Dead Redemption is without a doubt a visual marvel.

    It will do nothing for someone looking for a game with strong mechanic drive.

    Red Dead Redemption is a true action adventure, in the Zelda inspired sense. That acts as the vessel for a superb cast of characters and and even more astoundingly realised time and place.

    And before I dismiss it as anything more than a virtual tour of the 1911 West Coast, let me reiterate the comparison to Zelda. The ambient missions see to it, that the world has context and reason to be explored. The random encounters and eco-system adds flavour. And the story carves a path through it all.

    And for a person such as me, I doubt it will be surpassed anytime soon… If it weren’t for the Last Guardian, I wouldn’t even see a glimmer of competition.

    I desperately want to see anything from Rockstar, so I hope we see Agent soon.

    @Crysis, Agent – Rockstar North game.

  17. Crysis

    @12, i honestly don’t remember, all i remember was “Agent”, PS3 Exclusive” & “Rockstar”
    -Edit- looked it up, yes it’s being developed by R* North.

    @Crysis, + it’s in development since 2007 year actually, but they announced in 2009.

    Something with Future or space-ships, kind of like Mass Effect 2, but more GTA-ish.


    A new DLC for RDR like the ones we know from GTA IV. With new characters, more to explore, more to do.

    Or more material to “Agent”.

    if la noire is releasing next year, and gta in 2012, agent has to be out in the middle. so im guessing a late 2012, early 2013 release for this game.

    “A new DLC for RDR like the ones we know from GTA IV. With new characters, more to explore, more to do.”

    I’d actually be well up for that if it meant we got something sooner rather than later. There was plenty of space in the world to add some new things, and the GTA IV episodes were excellent!

    Ah, i loved Episodes of Liberty City, such an ingenious way of selling the same world through different eyes @ a lower price, it’s GTA IV+ best thing of all, it didn’t require GTA IV, so i’d be open to buying something along those lines, i just got bored of the main story of Red Dead 7 all too often just cluelessly roamed around hunting who/whatever i could, most the enemies in this game had nothing against the crimes i’ve done :D

    GTA is in the present, RDR is in the past maybe the next game will be set in the future lol

    I don’t feel like playing a new RDR.. I just don’t
    GTA V is more welcomed

    Yead i’d love to see a propper manhunt 3, without the fucking censorship jumping in. Manhunt 1 is among the best games ever made!!

    Rockstar is one of if not the single most over rated studio on the planet. Period.
