Gamers have been waiting to hear the news for years, and finally, Rockstar Games has officially announced Red Dead Redemption 2. The studio confirmed the game will be released during the fall of 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is said to be “an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland.” Gamers will be able to explore the “vast and atmospheric world” Rockstar Games has created. It is said to be delivering “the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.”
Grand Theft Auto V heavily featured online in the form of GTA Online, so it’s not surprising to read the latter statement from Rockstar. Red Dead Online is the presumed name for Red Dead Redemption 2‘s multiplayer, though it has yet to be formally coined.
For those wondering, Rockstar Games did not make any mention of the game coming to PC in the release they sent to press. If Red Dead Redemption 2 comes to PC at all, it’s fair to expect a similar path to what we saw with GTA V. Founder of Rockstar Games Sam Houser spoke about today’s news.
“With Red Dead Redemption 2, the team is working hard to push forward our vision for interactive entertainment in a truly living world. We hope to deliver players an epic experience that builds upon everything we’ve learned making games,” Houser said.
So the game is real, but what about gameplay? Rockstar Games stated there will be a trailer released this coming Thursday, Oct. 20. You can watch the trailer at 11:00 a.m. EST.
