There's so much anticipation built around the sequel to Rockstar Games' 2010 western action-adventure video game, "Red Dead Redemption." After all, it's been six years since the game was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, earning great reviews from various gaming media outlets. It was so well-received that it even won several Game of the Year awards from various award-giving media outlets. So what exactly is taking "Red Dead Redemption 2" so long to arrive?

Rockstar Games has kept tight-lipped on whether or not they are indeed cooking up something along the lines of "Red Dead Redemption 2." Some may think that they have completed the masterpiece and left it on the shelf in fear of disappointing fans with a sequel, but with one very successful game out, it's not difficult to imagine that there's so much room for exploration in a sequel.

In fact, Rockstar San Diego's Ted Carson told Gamespot in 2010 that the need to create a Wild West shooter game was undeniable at the time, because "The setting was so strong, and the possibilities in an open-world setting seemed endless. We clearly weren't going to be able to fit all those ideas into the original game."

If this is any indication, the developers should really look into creating a sequel, as to further not just the story but the world they have created. It seems that the latest rumor surrounding "Red Dead Redemption 2" involves multiple protagonists. According to Gamerant, these new rumors about the highly anticipated yet unconfirmed game is that there will be multiple protagonists in the game, just like Rockstar Games' "Grand Theft Auto V."

While there was no announcement or hint at "Red Dead Redemption 2" during this year's E3, fans are expecting the studio to deliver news on the upcoming Gamescom 2016 event. While there is no official word out yet on whether or not the game will be discussed or unveiled during Gamescom this year, it wouldn't hurt to keep one's fingers crossed.
