Yesterday Rockstar were teasing a Red Dead related announcement. Many, myself included, speculated that it would be a sequel.
Turns out I, and the vast majority of the internet, was right and Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out in the Autumn of 2017 for the Xbox One and Playstation 4. A trailer is being released on the 20th of October.
This is how the official Rockstar website describes the game:
Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.
This, and the picture, implies that they will try to recreate the Grand Theft Auto V Online success to a degree within the Wild West, which is certainly an interesting idea considering one would assume there would be less to ‘do’ in a late 19th to early 20th century period. But if there is someone who can fill their open world games with cool stuff to do, it would be Rockstar.
I am personally more interested in the story, I wonder if they will follow on from the brilliant narrative they wrote in the first game or do they treat it more like the Grand Theft Auto franchise and tell a brand new story? The mind boggles with possibilities.
I was a huge fan of Red Dead Redemption so I am so excited for this game.
