The first game of this fan-favorite series came out in 2010, and it took eight years for Rockstar to develop a second game. Further, the American company has many other sequels to think about, like the Grand Theft Auto 6. Recently, there have been rumors suggesting that GTAVI is under development.

We can expect the Rockstar Games to start working on another RDR3 before the next GTA title. The game’s plot might feature a new story with a new protagonist but with few connections to the past games. Further, fans can expect it to be another masterpiece from Rockstar.
