After two days of teasing the internet with images, Rockstar has now come right out with it: Red Dead Redemption 2 is a real thing that is happening, and we can expect a trailer for it on Thursday, October 20th, at 11am. [Via Kotaku]
Rumor has it the game will be a prequel so that could be John Marston in the center.
From Rockstar games:
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.
And the accompanying press release:
With Red Dead Redemption 2, the team is working hard to push forward our vision for interactive entertainment in a truly living world,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We hope to deliver players an epic experience that builds upon everything we’ve learned making games.”
Rockstar also notes that RDR 2 will be coming to Xbox One and PS4. No word yet on a PC version. I’m STOKED for this news!!!
