Rockstar Games sparked intense excitement in the video game industry two days ago, and all they had to do was release an image of their logo on a red background. Fans immediately began speculating that a Red Dead Redemption 2 announcement was imminent, and Rockstar further fueled those flames with a second teaser image yesterday.
All of those eager fans turned out to be correct, as the game has now officially been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Rockstar just launched a new website for the upcoming game, which is slated to launch in the Fall of 2017. Here’s the brief description they’ve provided so far:
“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.”
No other details have been shared yet, but that will be changing soon. The game’s first trailer will drop on Thursday, October 20th, at 11:00 AM Eastern.
