Red Dead Redemption 2: Rockstar confirms title, release date

Posted on

After a couple days of teasing, Rockstar has finally confirmed the upcoming release of Red Dead Redemption 2. The original 2010 game achieved both popular and critical success thanks to its open-world environment, which allowed players to terrorize the Wild West, Grand Theft Auto style.

Rockstar announced on their website Tuesday that the sequel is coming in fall 2017.

More information will doubtlessly be included in the game’s trailer, set to debut Oct. 20, but already this announcement contains one major reveal: As suggested by the promotional art featuring a group of seven gunslingers, there will be “an online multiplayer experience” this time around. Fans should keep an eye out; seems like there will be more details coming soon.
