Fans of the video game Red Dead Redemption have been clamoring for a sequel to that game for a long time now. There seemed to be some concern that a sequel wouldn't be made. Considering the original Red Dead sold 13 million units, the fear of no follow up to the original seems out of place.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has made some comments recently that seem to indicate that a sequel to the game is in the works. He described the Red Dead franchise as being permanent and sitting alongside Grand Theft Auto and Borderlands. Those are two of Take-Two's most popular franchises putting Red Dead in good company.

Zelnick also mentioned during the conference where he talked about Red Dead that his company uses a selective approach to releasing games. He says Take-Two doesn't want to flood the market with games. Rather than giving consumers more, he says they want better games.

"I pretty much know the ones that I can assure you are permanent. It's obvious that GTA is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that Red Dead is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or Borderlands, for example, and NBA and others," Zelnick added. "But not everything is going to be a permanent franchise. We can do very well even if it's not. I would like to see us grow with a couple more great franchises in the next couple years and we're launching Evolve; we have very high hopes for that."
