John or Jack Marston to Not Star in the Next Red Dead Game?

There have been a lot of rumors flying about RockStar’s next step in the Red Dead series. Players took a huge liking to this Western game and along with it a great love for the games protagonist, John Marston. This was a game original from most every other game out there. It took players and placed them in a setting they weren’t used to playing. Red Dead: Redemption had a great plotline, long game play and familiarity that players weren’t used to. Of course, with all the good there is to say about the game fans want a squeal. With the way RockStar has taken fan favorite games in the past the odd of getting a direct squeal to Red Dead: Redemption isn’t as good as players might want them to be.

Most gamers don’t remember that Red Dead: Redemption wasn’t the first game in the Red Dead series as Red Dead: Revolver was the previous game in the series. With that being said Red Dead: Redemption was not a squeal to Red Dead: Revolver but just another game in the series.

RockStar has a tendency to make a completely different game, with a completely different character and plot line in their games rather than connecting them to one another. Take a look at the Grand Theft Auto series, the games don’t exactly connect to the games before it. We are talking about a company that shoots out new ideas all the time. RockStar is a company that doesn’t rely on one idea and milking it until it becomes not enjoyable to the player but they bring up fresh content all the time. We are not saying that there is no chance that John or Jack Marston will not be a part of any next game in the series as nothing has yet been announced; it is just the likelihood of RockStar making a game directly after another featuring the same character has been rare in the past.

Even though the trend of trashing characters has been seen in RockStar before, John Marston has been one of the most beloved characters the team has ever created. They might want to stick with what made people love the game which was the characters or they might do what they usually do and turn in a completely different direction. Nothing is confirmed for the game yet, not even an official announcement, these are just educated assumptions on where the company might turn for a next game. Which would you prefer for RockStar to do with the Red Dead series; a new direction with new characters, a direct squeal to the game featuring Jack Marston or a game based around fan favorite John Marston again.

  1. I want to see django in the next red dead

  2. I am still playing rdr everyday. I have the ps3 and two xbox versions. I have two xboxs so that way it can be played with two people together. It is the best game and plot that has ever been made. They could take John and show him before Rdr. He’s in his gang and it’s right before he leaves the gang.Better yet he dreamed up the barn scene where he died and was still alive and was hired for one last old west hurrah

  3. As long as its not going to be in the late 1920s-30s(all the cowboy guns got replaced with automatic guns, so it would not be an actual cowboy game) I don’t care what they do. It would be cool if Red Harlow made an appearance in the story, and the god forsaken Lock on mode be removed. but I’m sure Rockstar will make another masterpiece. I’m excited to see what they come up with for the red dead series in the years to come.

    There was a whole bunch of people there who shot John, If I was Jack I would want revenge on every single one who put a bullet in him. It could be set a few years after 1914, turn of the 20s with all these new inventions, horses giving way to cars, motorcycles, lorries, biplanes. Six shooters giving way to tommy guns, granades, flame throwers. All very Bonnie and Clyde, Hists, bootleggin, hijacking lorries. Im talking a very early GTA in a blossoming America. Jack trailing a path to find every soldior, law enforcement officer or politition who had anything to do with Johns death, from those who pulled the trigger to those who signed the order. To make them pay for the ranch, family and future he lost. Red Dead Vengance. The end

    I agree with winkywizard and the revenge, but if it gets too advance it will just be GTA, so that could be why rockstar hasnt released a new Red dead

    I have an idea for what could have happened to Jack Marston after is father’s demise based on the outfits that are available only to him: the US marshall outfit, the army uniform, and the Government Agent suit.

    Jack mentions to John that he’d like to become a soldier, though the circumstances that happened later would probably make that less than likely. But if Jack joined the army and was made a US Marshall, it would explain why the Bureau Agent so readily told him about Edgar Ross’s whereabouts and why Ross’s wife and brother would be so quick to trust him.

    The last time I played RD:R, killing Ross was the very last thing I needed to do before getting 100%, so as soon as it was done I unlocked the Bureau suit. It struck me then that it would be the ultimate irony if Jack was promoted to the Bureau of Investigation after killing Ross.

    Maybe a sequel with Jack could see him trying to reconcile his past with his new job, and possibly see him sent to Europe to participate in WWI. This is unlikely, but it would be an interesting idea for certain.

  7. I’ve a heart for Jack’s situation. I feel for him as a kid that’s had a rough time. I read a brilliant fan fiction story in which he and his childhood friend Effie MacFarlane (Bonnie’s niece) become famous bounty hunters and get tangled in a government conspiracy. He falls in love and it pulls him back together. If the sequel covered no more than a couple of years more, this would be an amazing plot. We all no how unresolved and sad we felt about Jack at the end. It must continue! I’d also really like to see the running of the farm business and such mundane stuff involved too. You could buy/sell cattle and horses, do cattle droving jobs, etc. Awesome as.
