Red Dead Redemption 2 officially announced, trailer on Thursday

Yesterday, the internet just about exploded with the merest hint of a new Red Dead Redemption game. Rockstar’s legendary western sandbox has aged like a fine wine over the years, having recently been made backwards compatible for Xbox One. But yesterday’s teaser wasn’t done on a random day. October 17 marked the date that the Texas Rangers were first formed, men who protected the wild west of the Texan landscape with complete autonomy as they fought off the likes of hostile Mexican armed forces and bandits roaming an untamed land back in the late 1800s.

With more fuel being added to the fire this morning over the trademark for Red Dead Online, it certainly sounds like Rockstar are getting ready to take the ideas of Grand Theft Auto V and apply it to this Red Dead Redemption sequel with a Magnificent Seven twist.

And in the words of Kurt Angle, it’s true! It’s damn true! Here’s the announcement from Rockstar Games:

Red Dead Redemption 2 will release worldwide in Fall 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.

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.

Watch the Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer at 11AM Eastern on Thursday, October 20th at rockstargames.com, as well at the official Rockstar Games YouTube and Twitch pages.

American Fall 2017 (LOLYEAHRIGHT) and a trailer on Thursday to show it off properly. Looking good!

      May not be helpful, but I think you said to help pay for camera equipment and a new laptop.

      WHICH, you can use in your day job to MAKE money that allows to buy a PS4 Scorpio just before the game comes out next year-ish

          Strangely enough, the one and only previous Rockstar game that I’ve truly enjoyed was Red Dead Redemption 1.
          Bully was ok.
          GTA, meh, never been a fan.

          So THIS, this is good news for me.

            I think I was in the wrong frame of mind when I played it. I was out of games that I really WANTED to play, so I borrowed it from a friend until something else came along.

            So for me, it was a filler game.

            And I distinctly recall not finishing it because I felt it became a bit too repetitive.

            But hey man, to each their own. We all have different tastes.

          Games like God of War 3, Final Fantasy XV, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Days Gone, Crash Bandicoot RM and Hellblade: Seuna’s sacrifice. (This is basically my list of games that would make me buy a PS4.)

            Agreed. I was sitting on the GTAIV forums for months. waiting for anything to be said about GTAV for PC.

            After a while, i realised that it was just a marketing ploy, mixed with an excuse for more time.

            If they repackaged the game added 0 things. Then yes i would say they dont care.

            But they released it, with added features. FPS. More wildlife etc etc.

            I dont agree with their marketing. R* care about money, and where does money come from. Us.

            Never got to play red dead though, so dont have that same hype for it but felt burned with GTAV, though I have the game on PC and it was better than anything Ive played bar Witcher3

          • BakedBagel

            October 18, 2016 at 15:43

            If i remember correctly, the only reason they never re-released RDR on the PC was because the Devs left the original code in such a mess. It would have been a loss if they had to re-code an entire project.

            But thats from R* so i dont know how true it is 😛

          They gave no insights into release dates and details. They kept pushing up dates (three times to be exact), not communicating it to anyone why. What about the shady sales tactics and dodgy marketing they pulled on the Steam store? By the time pc got the game (over a year and a half after console release) it was already an old and tired game.

            Marketing
            “They kept pushing up dates (three times to be exact)”
            What company in the last 5 years hasn’t done this
            “not communicating it to anyone why”
            Marketing

            What about the shady sales tactics and dodgy marketing they pulled on the Steam store?

            ^ That was the some dodgy ass shit. 50% discount, lets mark it up by 35% LUL
            But again, they arnt the only ones. They offered extra content for another purchase. In the end, iii do agree releasing a game twice is laughable. But it worked. And i stand by my statement

            “If they repackaged the game added 0 things. Then yes i would say they dont care.”
            There were reasons, hating the PC community is not one of them

    This is how you do it. You keep quiet about a game and work on it at your own time. When you feel the game is at a point where it can be revealed you do so.

    About bloody time, I’ve just gone through RDR again when it became backwards compatible on the Xbox, its a masterpiece, glad to see they are going to pump more time into the multiplayer side if things, roll on Thursday, now if Valve could just announce Half Life 3, then this would be a perfect day
