Online multiplayer video games like Fortnite have dominated gaming and pop culture for some time now but Roger Clark, who plays the voice of Arthur Morgan in Red Dead Redemption 2, says there’s room for both.
“The storytelling potential – every year we see something more and more inspiring and brave – and I for one am a huge fan of single-player.”
“I’m going to be doing it until the day I die. I know it,” he said speaking to BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat.
Red Dead Redemption 2 had sales of $725 million in its opening weekend which was a bigger take than Avengers Infinity War at the movie theatre. Roger says that there were periods when Red Dead Redemption 2 makers doubted what they were creating because online play is a “huge, huge part of the businesses now”
“But at the same time there was a lot of commitment and we wanted to tell the best story that we could”
Red Dead Redemption was nominated (but didn’t win) in six categories at this year’s Bafta Games Awards losing to God Of War which won the nights’s biggest prize.
