Our an­tic­i­pa­tion for this se­quel be­gan the in­stant we fin­ished its pre­de­ces­sor, so we’ve been wait­ing, let’s see now, around 2427 days. Not that we’ve been count­ing or any­thing. But could this be the dif­fi­cult sec­ond game? Can Rock­star re­ally im­prove on what was al­ready a near-per­fect ex­pe­ri­ence and richly re­alised Wild West? Ab­so­lutely it can. We’ve seen the de­vel­oper con­tinue to break the mould, over-de­liver, and push its jug­ger­naut GTA se­ries for­ward with ev­ery new in­stal­ment, so there’s no rea­son to be­lieve it can’t work the same magic here. We may only have seen a sin­gle trailer, but this al­ready has to con­sid­ered as an early con­tender for 2017 game of the yee­haw.
