The internet (understandably) collectively lost their minds over Rockstar Games’ image tease and announcement of the highly-anticipated sequel to their open-world cowboy epic Red Dead Redemption, officially titled Red Dead Redemption 2.
According to Rockstar’s Newswire post, the sequel will release Fall 2017, with the first trailer releasing Thursday, October 20th at 11am Eastern. The post goes on to briefly describe the game, calling it “[an] epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland.”
The post continues with “the game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience,” lending itself to the idea that Rockstar plans on bringing their success with GTA Online to the Wild Wild West.
