Rockstar Officially Confirms Red Dead Redemption 3 Release

Red Dead Redemption 3

The sequel to the 2010 original, Red Dead Redemption, completely amazed us with Arthur Morgan’s epic adventure in the fading Wild West of 1899. Red Dead Redemption 2 is widely considered one of Rockstar’s most visually stunning games. And now, Rockstar Games has excited fans by officially announcing that they are working on Red Dead Redemption 3.

Is Red Dead Redemption 3 confirmed?

The Red Dead Redemption series started back in 2004 with a game called Red Dead Revolver, which was not as widely known. However, it was the release of Red Dead Redemption in 2010 that really made the series famous. Then, in 2018, we got the sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, which made the series even more legendary. It set incredibly high standards for both its storytelling and gameplay.

Red Dead Redemption 3 is officially in development, as confirmed by Rockstar Games. This exciting news came directly from Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Rockstar Games. During an interview at the Jefferies Virtual Global Interactive Entertainment Conference, Zelnick mentioned, “If it’s really, really great, it will keep going. I don’t know if you saw it, I just saw the new James Bond film, that was great. You would like every franchise to be Bond. There are very few entertainment franchises that can reach that level, but they do exist. I think GTA is one of them, I think Red Dead is one of them, NBA is obviously one of them because the game will continue to exist.”

Although he hasn’t given a specific release date, it’s expected that there will be a significant gap between the second and third iterations of Red Dead Redemption, much like the eight-year wait between the first two.

Red Dead Redemption 3 Release Date

Red Dead Redemption 3 Release Date

While Rockstar Games is currently working hard on the highly anticipated title, GTA 6, it’s unlikely that RDR 3 will be coming anytime soon. Despite recent rumors, Rockstar hasn’t officially confirmed anything about Red Dead Redemption 3 release date. Their development teams are likely focusing on GTA VI before tackling a new big project. Assuming GTA 6 is released around 2024-25, RDR 3 might follow around 2026.

Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2 came out 8 years apart, in 2010 and 2018, respectively. So another 8-year gap would also point to a potential 2026 release for RDR 3. Considering this information, it’s safe to say that we may expect a Red Dead Redemption 3 by 2026 at the earliest.


Zelnick’s statement does confirm that RDR 3 will be released eventually. However, it doesn’t confirm if the game is actively being developed. Considering the extensive attention GTA 6 is receiving and its reported scale, it’s reasonable to assume that work on the third Red Dead Redemption game is in its early phases.

We’ll have to wait and see what Rockstar Games has in store for the gaming community in the future. As always, we’ll keep you posted with any updates on Red Dead Redemption 3. So stay tuned! And feel free to share your thoughts on RDR 3 in the comments below!

Will there be a RDR 3?

RDR 3 is under development, as confirmed by Rockstar Games. However, as of now, they have not provided any specific release date yet.

What platforms will RDR 3 be released on?

It’s quite likely that Rockstar Games will develop Red Dead Redemption 3 for the next-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles, probably for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Additionally, considering that Red Dead Redemption 2 was released on PC, there’s a good chance that RDR 3 will also be available on PC.

Is arthur morgan coming back to RDR 3?

Since Arthur Morgan died at the end of Red Dead Redemption 2, it’s unlikely he’ll be in RDR 3. But there’s a chance Red Dead Redemption 3 could be a prequel, set before RDR 2, exploring Arthur’s early life and how he became an outlaw.
