Red Dead Redemption 3 Apparently Likely, but Not Imminent

Voice of Arthur Morgan Shares Insights on GTA 6, GTA Online, and the Prospects of a Red Dead Redemption Sequel

In the midst of the mounting excitement surrounding Grand Theft Auto 6, Roger Clark, the acclaimed actor behind Red Dead Redemption 2’s protagonist Arthur Morgan, has ventured into the conversation, expressing his belief in the eventual arrival of a third game in the series.

Taking to Twitter to share his thoughts on the GTA 6 trailer, Clark touched on the enduring popularity of GTA Online from Grand Theft Auto 5, foreseeing that GTA 6’s iteration of GTA Online won’t supplant the still-thriving community of its predecessor. He emphasized the longevity of both, asserting that “Rockstar is going to head further into the stratosphere.”

Responding to a fan’s inquiry about the prospects of a third game, a game that Rockstar has neither confirmed nor announced, Clark conveyed his certainty that it will materialize “one day.” However, he offered a disclaimer, admitting his lack of knowledge regarding the timeline for such a release. Clark also unequivocally ruled out the return of Arthur Morgan in any potential Red Dead Redemption 3, emphasizing that the character’s story has been fully told.


While there is no concrete indication of Rockstar actively developing this installment, the prospect aligns with the logical trajectory of the franchise’s success. Red Dead Redemption, while not reaching the same magnitude as GTA, boasts impressive sales, with over 81 million units sold globally. Recent reports even highlighted a surge in Red Dead Redemption 2’s popularity on Steam, signaling the ongoing resonance of the Wild West epic.

As the gaming community eagerly awaits the unveiling of GTA 6, scheduled for a 2025 release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S, the potential arrival of Red Dead Redemption 3 remains speculative. Given Rockstar’s pattern of releasing major titles with considerable gaps, a plausible timeline for a Red Dead Redemption 3 release might align with the next decade, possibly around 2030. For now, attention remains fixed on the imminent launch of GTA 6, and fans can only speculate about the future adventures that Rockstar might unfold in the expansive landscapes of Red Dead.
