Maybe we should read between the lines…

Publisher Take-Two Interactive filed a shareholder outreach document this week with the US Securities & Exchange Commission and in it, the company cites Red Dead Redemption .

The extremely successful title that shipped over 13 million copies currently holds a 95 Metacritic ranking and is revered as one of the best games ever. And in that document, Take-Two says Rockstar's 2010 smash hit "rejuvenated the Western entertainment genre." That isn't in dispute; I can't even name another successful game with a Western motif, can you? There are a few here and there, but none that had the sheer punching power of RDR, which is why everyone wants a sequel.

No word on that yet, but Take-Two has said in the past that Red Dead is one of their "permanent" franchises. Hence, a sequel is inevitable…it's just a matter of when.
