There are many anticipated and important games set to debut over the next year and beyond. It all depends on the lens you view gaming through, but most would agree Red Dead Redemption 2 is near the top. It has been over seven years since gaming saw the debut iteration, Red Dead Redemption.

The open-world title received critical acclaim and great commercial success, and now a sequel is coming. Rockstar Games is aiming for a Spring 2018 release time frame for Red Dead 2. In preparation for its launch, Rockstar Games revealed a brand-new trailer for the upcoming game.

Rockstar’s new trailer gives a sneak peek into the story that awaits players. “We are proud to present the all-new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van Der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive. Coming Spring 2018 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems,” Rockstar Games wrote.

The open-world sequel was initially scheduled for launch this year, but it was recently delayed until early next year. The title has been under development for a number of years, but Rockstar wants to ensure it is ready when it debuts. Rockstar has quite the tendency to delay its games, but providing the best product possible is always the best policy.

Separately, Rockstar Games is going to launch L.A. Noire on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One this coming November. Each platform will receive the title on Nov. 14. Additionally, HTC Vive is also receiving L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, which delivers seven “select cases” from the original game. These have been remade specifically for VR.

No release date is available for Red Dead Redemption 2. It is fair to expect further insight into that later this year or early next. The game will debut on PS4 and Xbox One. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Red Dead Redemption.
