Red Dead Redemption 2 possibly features 60-hour campaign

Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost here, and more information keeps on coming out. Today, Rockstar detailed the length of the campaign.

Dan Houser, Rockstar's Vice President of Creativity, shared details like the length of the campaign and romance options in an interview with Vulture. You can read the pertinent excerpt below.

The acting for Red Dead Redemption 2's story mode is now complete, but as release day approaches, five hours of the 65-hour game are dumped. At one point, protagonist Arthur Morgan had two love interests, but 'we decided one of them didn't work,' says Dan. And whole missions were removed because 'they were never going to work technically or be quite slick enough, or they felt superfluous. 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.'

The fact that the campaign alone is 60 hours points towards a truly expansive experience. However, some gamers might be able to finish it faster. Luckily, there are plenty of side activities like fishing and hunting to keep you occupied.

After a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal, and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals or loyalty to the gang who raised him.
