Red Dead Redemption is unlikely, but it’s not impossible. Take-Two tease
Take-Two’s CEO believes that a Red Dead Redemption film will not be made.
On 9 August Game Rant
Zelnick’s statement that Take-Two would not put their entire eggs in one basket based on “someone else’s performance in another entertainment area” was the final nail.
This is not good news, people.
Take-Two has other projects, primarily BioShock, in development. Zelnick may revisit the issue if the projects are a huge success for Take-Two.
Take-Two hasn’t had a good track record with movies in the past. Just look at MaxPayne. Take-Two should be cautious when it comes to this film, which had a budget of $35 million but only made $40.7 million in the US.
The Borderlands project is another gray area, as it has been delayed numerous times and the release date remains a year away. It’s hard for fans to be excited about these stories when they are unsure of what will happen next.
We’re moving away from the games-to-movies topic for the time being, but there is an elephant that we haven’t addressed: the Nintendo Switch version of RDR.
Zelnick had to justify the $49.99 price tag on an old game. Zelnick’s response to the question about the price was that it is “commercially correct”.
These two words send fans into a frenzy.
Take-Two’s future is uncertain, and the enthusiasm for an RDR movie has been officially depleted. We’ll keep the dream alive as long as there is even a tiny glimmer of hope.
