“We were told Red Dead Redemption would be a disaster”- Rockstar

This makes no sense whatsoever.

Posted By | On 09th, Nov. 2012

Rockstar was told that Red Dead Redemption would go on to be a “disaster” while the wild west open world game was still in development.

Rockstar vice president Dan Houser revealed while talking with Game Informer about GTA 5 that RDR was touted as a “disaster” by many. “We loved Niko and felt he was a very strong lead protagonist for a game, and we were starting to get into John Marston” Houser said.

“We were still being told a western was going to be a disaster,” he continued, “but we thought we were going [to] make something interesting with a strong character that you started to fall in love with.”

Of course, we all know how that turned out. Red Dead Redemption turned out to be an excellent achievement, probably Rockstar’s best game this generation. It even sold an astounding 13 million copies.

Yeah, you know what that means, Rockstar? Don’t listen to people.
