"Red Dead Redemption 2" has finally been confirmed and is no longer a depressing mystery to many, though the wait is one that may test everyone's patience. Regardless, the Rockstar Games sequel is expected to be a hit from the get-go.

As some may know, the original "Red Dead Redemption" game garnered more than enough fan base in the past, which up to this day continues to expand. Now that Rockstar Games has announced the game to be official, some who assess the well-being of "Red Dead Redemption 2" have spoken on what can be expected from the high-end continuity.

According to reports, "Red Dead Redemption 2" will most likely land itself on a Metascore of above 90-around 92 to 93, as per analyst Michael Pachter. This is due to the fact that Rockstar Games has never failed in the creation of high-end games in the past, and more so that they come up with admirable sequels for them. Given such, fans can rest assured that the title will deliver as the reputation precedes.

Regarding the wait, it was announced via Twitter that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will launch by Fall of next year, which in such case might be a long wait to some. While there may be a hefty period of patience to account for, the existing "Red Dead Redemption" title allegedly pays homage to the important female characters in the franchise, which could also be carried over to the next entry.

As of now, it may quite be too early to tell whether "Red Dead Redemption 2" will make it big in the industry, even with analysts saying so. As far as the game's popularity is concerned, there is already a big following to the franchise and it is almost a guaranteed hit as soon as it comes out. Previous reports say that an initial 12 million copies could be sold early, not counting what could come thereafter.
