It’s been 6 long grueling years since the release of the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption. Now, after days of tantalizing teasers, the fine folks at Rockstar Games have revealed the sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2. According to the the developer’s website, the game will be developed by the team who had worked on Grand Theft Auto V and the first Red Dead Redemption.
Much like its predecessor, the second game in the series will feature a massive open-world experience, and will focus on “An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland.” On top of a brand new open-world adventure, Rockstar have stated that there will be a brand new multiplayer experience. While Red Dead Redemption did come with online multiplayer, with the knowledge the team has gained from running Grand Theft Auto Online, the new multiplayer experience promises to be interesting to say the least.
According to the Facebook announcement for the game, a new trailer will be released on the 20th of October, to formally announce Red Dead Redemption 2. The video will be released at 11 a.m. Eastern time on the Rockstar Games YouTube page and the Twitter page. The game is slated for a Fall 2017 release for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There is currently no plans for a PC release, much like the first game.
