After a few days of teasing, Rockstar Games have finally confirmed a new entry in the Red Dead franchise. Coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 in the Fall of 2017, is Red Dead Redemption 2. To many a surprise, because the “2” strongly hints to the continuation of the John Marston story line. Without spoiling much details about the story of the previous installment, a sequel was not something many gamers were thinking of. Perhaps a prequel then? The art work Rockstar released along with the announcement shows a character that resembles John Marston, so the game might be focused on the time when Marston was still a gang member. Coming Thursday we’ll know more, as the first trailer is expected to release that day. I can’t wait to see it. How about you?
Just mere minutes ago, Rockstar Games updated their social media profile pictures and cover photos with new artwork. The artwork is colored red/black and looks reminiscent of the artwork style used in Red Dead Redemption. Could this mean another Red Dead game is due to be announced soon? Rockstar is very serious with the tease, they even added a splash screen on their main website! Apart from the re-release of GTA 5 on PS4/Xbox One, Rockstar has not released any other game yet this generation. So I’m sure we are in for a treat and will be amazed of what they’ve cooked up! If the story develops, expect this post to be updated.
Update 17/10/2016: Rockstar Games again teased us by posting another mysterious picture. A band of cowboys walking on the horizon! Now it’s even more certain a next installment in the Red Dead franchise is coming. Hopefully we’ll get a proper announcement soon!
