How long does it take to complete Red Dead Redemption 2?

So how long is Red Dead Redemption 2? Well, as with most open world games, it depends on what you want to do, and what you consider 'complete'.

If you ignore most of the side content in the game, including hunting, optional missions, freeform activities, and minigames, and focus mainly on main story missions, you'll probably be able to see the credits within 50 or so hours. If you're super quick and blitz every story mission, one after another, you might even be able to shave that time down to 30 hours or thereabouts.

If you want to see and do absolutely everything, then you're going to be playing a lot longer. We're talking 65-75 hours easy, maybe going all the way to 100 hours and above depending on how slow you take it.
