Red Dead Redemption 2 Officially Announced

After a couple of days of releasing teaser images and stirring up the fanbase, Rockstar Games have finally gone ahead and officially announced Red Dead Redemption 2. Their thrilling Wild West saga is getting another sequel, although we’ll have to wait a fair bit before we actually get to play it.

The game is planned for released sometime during fall 2017. More importantly (at this point, at least), they’re going to release the first trailer on October 20th, at 11 AM EST. It’s probably not going to contain actual gameplay footage, as these things rarely do, but it’s still an exciting prospect.

Here’s the awfully brief description they posted along with the picture:
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.
This doesn’t tell us much, except that there’s probably going to be a Red Dead Online at some point. Get ready for horse races, saloon brawls and high noon duels. As you might have noticed, there are seven characters in the picture. Our theory is that they’re all going to be playable. Rockstar wouldn’t possibly go back to having a single protagonist, after having three turned out to be such a success. Five would be the obvious next step, but they’re going to go just a bit further and make it seven.

The sad news is that it won’t be coming to PC, at least for now. It might end up getting there later, like GTA 5 did, or it might end up never happening, like the previous Red Dead game. Only time will tell. For now, though, it’s only confirmed for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.
