The Red Dead Redemption 2 Pinkerton lawsuit has been dropped by Take-Two, leading to a quiet end for the suit. Pinkerton Consulting and Investigations filed a cease and desist order to Take-Two in December which the publisher responded to with the now-dropped suit in January. Speaking to The Verge, a Take-Two representative said, “Take-Two can confirm that the present-day Pinkerton Consulting and Investigation company has withdrawn its claims against Red Dead Redemption 2, and Take-Two will not continue legal action against Pinkerton. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a work of fiction set in the late 1800s that references historical entities active during that time.” Take-Two dropped the suit earlier this week following Pinkerton withdrawing their claims against the game publisher. Pinkerton Consulting and Investigation has not issued a statement regarding the lawsuit. The present-day Pinkertons filed a cease and desist that claimed Red Dead Redemption 2 was unfairly … [Read more...] about Red Dead Redemption 2 Pinkerton lawsuit dropped

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice already does a good job of balancing entertaining combat gameplay with its story. It has difficult boss battles and enemy encounters, as well as a narrative that offers four different endings that require multiple playthroughs. However, its creator wants to do more when it comes to video game narratives, and even make one emulating the style of Red Dead Redemption 2. Speaking at Reboot Develop in Dubrovnik, Croatia, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice creator and Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed his normal process for making a game. Miyazaki often puts gameplay development before story, but he would like to turn this around, making a game that puts a greater spotlight on the narrative. Via a translator, Miyazaki said that he would like to make a narrative game like Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. Red Dead Redemption 2 reviews have heaped praise upon the game’s story and its in depth look at the cowboy life and the hardships of living a life … [Read more...] about Sekiro Creator Wants to Make a Red Dead Redemption 2 Style Game
Several months ago, the retiring president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime, explained to Red Dead Redemption 2 fans why Rockstar Games’ open world action-adventure epic is currently not a Nintendo Switch release. Now, though, should a recent piece of supposedly leaked information by Target Australia be accurate, then RDR2 could very well be coming to the Big N’s hybrid mobile console at some point in the future. This much has been discovered on page 12 of Target Australia’s latest catalogue, with the retailer listing Red Dead Redemption 2 as being available on its current platforms of PlayStation 4 and Xbox, as well as on the Nintendo Switch. Following this particular find, Target has since updated the listing in its online catalogue to reflect a change that removes the Switch as one of the game’s supported platforms, with it now only showing Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox One and PS4. Bearing in mind the subsequent … [Read more...] about Rumor: Red Dead Redemption 2 for Switch Leaked By Target
Arguably 2018’s biggest game was Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar’s epic-scale open world western that won numerous awards and stands as the best-selling game of 2018. Even so, Red Dead Redemption 2‘s potential audience is somewhat limited by the fact that the game is only available on PS4 and Xbox One, but that could change in the near future. Prior to its GDC 2019 keynote address, Google showed a series of images that some believe are hinting at third-party game releases for its ambitious Stadia platform. One graphic features a cowboy hat, a cowboy boot, saloon doors, a horse, and a cactus, leading to speculation that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to Stadia. After all, Red Dead Redemption 2 features these elements prominently, and while one could argue that Google is teasing any kind of western game, it’s worth pointing out that Red Dead is one of the only westerns on the market. However, the other images that Google … [Read more...] about Red Dead Redemption 2 Teased for Google Stadia?
In an open world multiplayer game like Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Red Dead Online, griefing is a major issue. Rockstar Games has managed to tone down griefing in Grand Theft Auto 5 through the popular “passive mode” feature, but at the time of writing, Red Dead Online has no such option. And while a full-blown passive mode is still not confirmed for Red Dead Online, a future update will add a feature that is somewhat similar and should alleviate some frustration. In a Red Dead Online update coming this spring, Rockstar will be introducing Offensive and Defensive modes. Offensive is the current Red Dead Online experience, meaning players will need to retreat to camp and raise the white flag to be completely safe from other players. Defensive, meanwhile, makes it impossible for players to be lassoed by others online, and it also makes it significantly harder to be killed as it removes critical hits. Those playing with the Defensive play style will also be … [Read more...] about Red Dead Online Update Will Add Passive Mode-Like Feature
