Red Dead Redemption 2: Fall 2017

RDR was in my personal top 3 of the last generation.  The above image suggests this will be a prequel dealing with John Marston's life in the gang.  Hopefully with it being a prequel they won't back themselves in a corner with the story and present something as impactful and memorable as RDR's narrative was.


Here is the reveal trailer, which doesn't reveal much:

Wouldn't it be Read Dead 3? Or Red Dead R-something?

Speaking of which, was Red Dead Redemption actually a sequel to Red Dead Revolver or was it a successor with an unrelated plot?

The latter.  Rockstar actually acquired the rights to Revolver from Capcom, who was initially going to publish it before Rockstar bought the studio working on it.  There are fan theories and such that link the two, but Redemption is just a spiritual successor to Revolver, and nothing more.

Most interesting.

I'm really psyched but I suspect it might just pan out to be a Red Dead Redemption remaster. I'd rather get a sequel.

Been keeping an eye on the developing red Rockstar texture.  Found the 7 cowboys this morning.  (Queue up theme from The Magnificent Seven.)  Bring it!

Given the 7 people in that promo image, I'd wager that it's not a remaster.  Leaks earlier in the year pointed to a prequel.  The seven people in the image suggests it'll be about his time with the gang.

Personally, I'd LOVE a remaster.  But as far as RDR goes I would be satisfied with a PC port that at least somewhat futureproofs the game.

Fall 2017.  Trailer coming on the 20th.

UGH, I GOTTA WAIT A YEAR!

Also, the bottom of the page denotes it is coming for PS4 and Xbox One.  No mention of a PC version.

The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

Uh oh . . .  Revenue-stream focus incoming.  I guess GTA Online will be the model for everything from now on.

Plus a year.  Way too long a lead time to start teasing this.  I might be dead in a year.  If not, I'll pay attention again after Labor Day, '17.

Probably 2 years Rockstar time, if we're being honest.

I didn't think I'd be this psyched for it but now that it's officially announced I am really looking forward to it!

Not much revealed story-wise, but the game looks utterly fantastic!

Red Dead Redemption 2 (console versions) is getting through the roof scores for the most part, as you might expect:

Hopefully, that PC port is coming...this century.
