Early previews of the game speak of an open world with unprecedented detail and interactivity, which, like Grand Theft Auto V before it, could redefine the very idea of "open world" once it launches.

There seems to be some confusion arising from my interview with Harold Goldberg [in New York Magazine].

Houser quickly issued a clarification to Kotaku, writing that it was only himself and three other people in the senior writing team who were working those hours, and only for three weeks.

Needless to say, the comments by Houser drew a huge amount of ire in the gaming media as it's just weeks after Telltale Games shuttered its doors, with many staff complaining about overwork and "crunch" overtime in order to get games ready for shipping. As Rockstar now looks to move from recreating the modern American dream to showcasing the old American frontier, lots of things are going to be very different- but many of them are going to be the same. No one, senior or junior, is ever forced to work hard. "More importantly, we obviously don't expect anyone else to work this way".

Rockstar has announced that players who have pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption 2 from digital stores will be able to pre-load the game from this Friday. I believe we go to great lengths to run a business that cares about its people, and to make the company a great place for them to work'.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is set at the dawn of the industrial age in a fictional reimagining of the Wild West.

As Rockstar Games' highly-anticipated sequel Red Dead Redemption 2 nears its October 26th release date, the developers may be entering "crunch time", the should-be-avoidable time when everyone's work/life balance goes haywire in a rush to finish the game.
