Rockstar Announces Red Dead Redemption 2 For 2017

Surprise! It was Red Dead Redemption 2, not Red Dead Revenge or Red Dead Westworld or a video game version of Seven Samurai. Just a plain old sequel. Information is thin on the ground right now, but here’s what we’ve got.

The game has been announced for a spring 2017 release, so around this time next year we can expect to sink our teeth into the newest installment of the Red Dead franchise. A trailer for the game will be dropping tomorrow at 2am AEDT for those who just can’t wait until next year to check it out. All this news came in the tweet that RDR fans have been waiting years for:

A short blurb has also been posted on Rockstar’s official page for the game:

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.

Vague, yes, but promising.
