Poll: What will be Rockstar's next game? (350 votes)

Red Dead 3 53%
Bully 2 14%
Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis 2 5%
L.A. Noire 2 1%
Agent 6%
Original IP 18%
New Midnight Club/Smugglers Run? 2%

We all know that Rockstar will be putting out GTA V for the PS4 and XboxOne later this year, but what do you guys think will be there next big release after that? I tried to limit the list to the most likely candidates, sorry Body Harvest 2.

Original IP would be awesome but I really really want to see LA Noire 2, the first one doesn't get enough credit in my opinion.

We won't get a Table Tennis 2 any-time soon I don't think and that sucks. The first existed as a test of the new tech but it seems with this console generation that porting is the convention (The Last of Us, GTA V re-releases). I'm sure it makes more sense for the money men but less interesting on our end. Speaking of money RDR sold something over 10 million copies AND it was good, so there is some fertile soil if Rockstar want to start planting.

Red Red Revolution. It's about cowboys in Soviet Russia.

While I'd love to see them tackle another western, I think it would make the most sense to do up a new IP for the new generation of consoles.

Yeah I voted more with my heart on this. LA Noire 2 would probably be great if they can improve upon the formula.

In my heart of hearts, I want Bully 2, but I think it'll be Red Dead (given the success of the last one). I didn't think LA Noire did very well, but I was way wrong. In 2011 the devs said they could make another one in less than 5 years, so maybe LAN2 next? I don't know.

#8 Posted by Jazz_Bcaz (271 posts) -

I'm just voting Bully 2 because I love being wrong. :'(

#9 Edited by Stonyman65 (2765 posts) -

I doubt they would do another GTA so soon, so my vote goes to Red Dead. I would have said another LA Noire, but considering what happened with Team Bondi after that game came out, I'd be surprised if we saw another one of those any time soon. I think if they were going to do another Bully we would have seen or heard something about it by now. A new Midnight Run would be cool but I'm not sure if that would be as interesting as it was way back when.

And of course there is always the mythical "new IP" - I guess we'll just have to wait and see on that one, eh?

I chose Agent to be a dick. I find it ridiculous that it's still listed as a game on their Social Club website. It's been 7 years and not a peep. They should just forget about it because how many people actually remember this was a thing?

For a serious answer, Red Dead 2 is the most likely. I want a new IP though.

#11 Posted by DrDarkStryfe (1140 posts) -

I cannot see Rockstar being allowed to make a new IP anytime soon. Take Two has made it very clear that Grand Theft Auto/Red Dead is very important to the financial stability of the company, and I think that is why Agent keeps getting pushed to the side.

I imagine that Red Dead will be the next major title to come out from Rockstar, though I would love to see Agent or Bully make an appearance one day.

My money is on Red Dead Revengeance.

You know, I think I might like to see them take another stab at Max Payne. Max Payne 3 had a great start and completely forgot what it was doing by the end, but maybe a second attempt would fare better.

#14 Posted by Branthog (5583 posts) -

In two years, we'll see a "remastered" GTA collection for the new consoles. In four years, we'll see the GTA VI, the first designed from the ground up for the current gen. A couple years after that, it'll be time for a new console generation.

#15 Posted by The_Nubster (2264 posts) -

My money is on Red Dead Revengeance.

My vote is on that in hopes that Revengeance will replace 'Origins' and 'Storm' as generic title words.

#16 Posted by Sterling (2466 posts) -

I hope its a new Red Dead game.

I wish we lived in a word where terms like "Revengeance" were considered generic.

A new Red Dead would be great on current gen consoles.

#19 Posted by mosespippy (4286 posts) -

I went with Bully because it would require a much smaller scope than a Red Dead or GTA game. Making those sprawling open worlds requires so much asset generation and time. Making a smaller game like Bully at the start of the generation makes a lot of sense.

But we're gonna get a bunch of GTA Online DLC for years to come. Every time they put up new content a percentage of people are gonna buy some Rockstar bucks to buy the cars/planes/clothes etc. The income of GTA Online is a huge concern for investors, because a new GTA only comes along once every 5 years. They want to drag out that income over a longer period of time.

#20 Posted by Brendan (7845 posts) -

Putting aside my wants, for some reason I think Rockstar will bring forth a new IP.

#21 Edited by Turtlebird95 (2497 posts) -

I HOPE it's a follow up to LA Noire set in the 50's or 60's, but I think it's obvious that probably won't happen. I think a new IP is the most likely.

#22 Posted by Splodge (1769 posts) -

I want an open world scifi game. If fallout 4 is going to be in purgatory, Rockstar should dive right into some hardcore sci fi craziness.

#23 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5807 posts) -

I've seriously got my fingers crossed for a new Read Dead.

#24 Posted by Corevi (3973 posts) -

I think it will be a New IP. I don't think there will ever be a Bully, Table Tennis or LA Noire sequel and Agent is dead. So all that leaves is Red Dead and GTA, which I don't think they'll do until they learn the hardware better.

#25 Posted by Clonedzero (4200 posts) -

I hope for a new Red Dead.

#26 Posted by ToTheNines (755 posts) -

I dunno, but I would love to someday play Red Dead on PC. I can't understand why they wouldn't port it.

#27 Posted by Hippie_Genocide (642 posts) -

Red Dead prequel where you play through John Marsten's exploits when he rode with Dutch's gang. The timeline won't really allow for you to play forward from Redemption and have it still be considered a western.

Space Western.

Bully 2

New IP.

In that order.

#30 Edited by RonGalaxy (3222 posts) -

Almost definitely red dead 3. R* san diego has to have been working on something for the past 3-4 years. I bet we see it around summer 2015.

#31 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2499 posts) -

Red Dead 3 without a doubt in my mind. I actually chuckled when I saw Smugglers Run.

#32 Posted by KaneRobot (1689 posts) -

Bully 2.

It's time.

#33 Edited by PenguinDust (12558 posts) -

I chose Agent. Not because I really expect it to come out...ever. But, because it's what I'd like to see most. A Rockstar spy vs spy game would be amazing.

#34 Posted by Ozzie (198 posts) -

I think it would be red dead but I want to see another bully game

You had a grenade launcher in the airport and that sweet music played.

...but as for plot, yeah, I don't remember. Wasn't it just funking REVENGE for that girl dying? Or, no, they were like eating the homeless or something. In that building you blew up. Aaaaaaaand he had some persona epiphany and quit drinking and walked off into the sunset.

GTA 1&2 HD.

I joke, but I would be very into a remake or even just an HD-ified GTA 1.

#41 Posted by Tajasaurus (898 posts) -

Manhunt 3?

I really hope it's a new Red Dead.

Frisbee Golf.

I would play the shit out of this

#42 Posted by Vanick (332 posts) -

My guess would be a new Red Dead and while I would really like that I'd kind of like to see something completely new.

#43 Posted by Glottery (1322 posts) -

Speaking of L.A. Noire, I wonder if Whore of the Orient's still alive in some form...

I think I'd like a completely new IP the best.

#44 Posted by BeachThunder (12095 posts) -

Open world table tennis.

#45 Posted by TheAcidSkull (572 posts) -

L.A. Noire...PLEASE.

#47 Posted by Party (109 posts) -

Agent still has a sick logo going for it. TAKE THAT NAYSAYERS.

#48 Posted by Panelhopper (192 posts) -

You know what? I'm just going to say it: I really liked that game based on The Warriors they made. Something like a spiritual sequel to that would be pretty cool.

#49 Edited by Random45 (1233 posts) -

Original IP would be awesome but I really really want to see LA Noire 2, the first one doesn't get enough credit in my opinion.

Given all the development problems that the first game went through, it would take a freaking miracle for a sequel to be made I think.

My money's on a brand new IP.

#50 Edited by Humanity (9604 posts) -

I wouldn't mind a new Red Dead but I'd love to see some new IP's on these new consoles.
