Disappointed and pleased at the same time.
Well, what are you expecting? We are so excited for Red Dead Redemption that everything related to west seems like about it. We love Red Dead Redemption, we love Westworld and we are going to love Wild West Online.
The leaked image was real, but not from Red Dead Redemption 2. It is from Wild West Online, an upcoming PVP MMO which will launch on PC this year. Creator DJ12 is planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign for later this month. The goal is $250,000 and if they can’t reach the goal, they will launch the core game.
Why is this game PC exclusive, you may ask. Well, Creative VP Stephan Bugaj says that they are tired of waiting Red Dead Redemption to hit PC and they decided to “take matters into their own hands”.
There’s an audience for this that just wasn’t being served on PC. So we wanted to make this big, open Wild West world with a bit of a twist that, like the best MMOs, is a place where people can really live in.
And, we can’t agree more. Red Dead Redemption is marvelous and we have no doubt that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a great experience, too. But, when it comes to Wild West Online, it will be a great pleasure seeing PC gamers enjoy a qualified western game.
We will be back with Kickstarter campaign details. Until then, enjoy the screenshots of Wild West Online.
