After some teasers earlier this week, Rockstar Games has officially announced Red Dead Redemption 2, a follow-up to the Western-themed game Red Dead Redemption. According to Rockstar Games Twitter, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released in the fall of 2017, and a trailer will be released on Thursday, October 20th at 11 AM ET.
There’s been a lot of speculation about a sequel to Red Dead Redemption which followed the game Red Dead Revolver - which came out in 2004. The hints we saw so far are the seven silhouettes in the image above, which could reference to multiplayer features.
