Red Dead Redemption clone?

I'm not sure if this is the right section, or if this should go in general discussion. Regardless, wouldn't it be awesome if Gameloft made a Red Dead Redemption clone? They've cloned just about everything else, this seems like a good choice to me. What do you guys think?

This should have gone in the Game Discussion section. For future reference, this is only used for games that are definitely in the works, or have been rumored to be in development. Any questions or topics of discussion go in Game Discussion.

I know that feeling. People do that all the time here. Whether it's a rumor or just someone who doesn't know the system well, you really have to check the actual thread before getting excited that the game's actually in production.

I'll give you a serious answer if you're prepared to take one from the other side of Gameloft opiniondom.

I was debating that, but decided it was too late for a fight.

Gangstar is a clone of older GTA games; specifically GTAIII & Vice City. It was in no way patterned after GTAIV, which is a separate class & generation of GTA . RDR runs off the GTAIV engine, which is far more advanced. It's hard to imagine RDR running off the older GTAIII engine. Because that is what you would get here. A Red Dead clone running off an engine similar to GTAIII.

Honestly, I just can't ever see it happening. Gameloft has shown either no ability or no motivation to truly refine their open-world gaming engine. could they make an open world game that looked similar to, say, NOVA? I don't think they would. It would require a level of performance that would leave old-tech devices behind. That is something that Gameloft doesnt want. You might want it, but Gameloft clearly doesn't.
