Rockstar games have announced the long anticipated sequel to 2010 western open-word hit Red Dead Redemption, after years of speculation, and two teaser images being posted to social media sites earlier this week.
Releasing in the Fall of 2017 for PS4 and Xbox One, Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a trailer to accompany the announcement this coming Thursday at 11AM EST. Rockstar games’ official site had the following to co-exist with the announcement image:
“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.”
PC players are currently expressing their disappointment at the lack of a PC release, however if history repeats itself, then Red Dead Dead Redemption 2 will release a year or two down the line from the console launch, as was seen with the launch of both Grand Theft Auto Four and Five. However no comment has been made by Rock Star as of yet.
In other news relating to Red Dead Redemption 2, the parent company to Rockstar Games, Take-Two Interactive, secured a domain for Reddeadonline.com which suggests that the online experience seen within Red Dead Redemption 2 will take on that name. The original Red Dead Redemption included a vast open world multiplayer experience which attracted a very impressive amount of players, as did GTA V, so it of course makes sense so have an experience similar for Rockstar’s next project.
