Red Dead Redemption 2 Is Going To Be 60 Hours Long

Red Dead 2

Never leaving the house.

It’s only a couple of weeks now until years of anticipation will be over with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, but it looks like the game might become the sole focus of your life following your purchase of it because it’s literally the biggest game ever by the sound of things.

The game length was revealed in a recent interview with Dan Houser – the head of Rockstar – who actually told us that they cut the game’s running time after they decided to leave a couple of bits out:

We were planning to give Arthur Morgan two love interests but we decided to whittle it down to one.

We decided one of them didn’t work because they were never going to work technically or be quite slick enough, or they felt superfluous. Due to that the 65 hour game now became a 60 hour game.

We removed a mission on a train where you had to deal with bounty hunters, because it was fun at first, but then it wasn’t. This part of the process is always about compromise and horse trading. Everyone always loses bits of the game they love.

I guess that’s the same with anything Dan, isn’t it? Anyway, I’m not really sure how I feel about it being 60 hours long – and that’s just the campaign mode, you can probably spend a shit load more time running around online with it as well – because I dunno if I’ll be able to keep interested for that long. I know people want to get a lot of bang for their buck but that really does seem like way too much. Either it takes me about three years to complete or I never go out of the house again. Tough choice really.
