Yup, they actually did it.
Two days ago, Rockstar Games took to twitter and just posted the image above with nothing else attached. Just that. The company’s logo is recognizable, but when the red background was added, it just about gave it away, and with that, they pretty much made the geek community freak out because everyone knew that meant a new Red Dead Redemption game was around the horizon. Then, lo and behold, they officially announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 was happening, and would be released in the fall of 2017.
With the official announcement, a poster was released. The poster shows us seven figures (none of which we know obviously), and at the bottom, it lets us know that a trailer for the game is going to be available this Thursday on the 20th. Their promotion of this game is pretty swift so far, but we don’t have any problems with that. Check out the poster and a short synopsis for the game below:
“Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is 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.”
We can’t help seeing the similarities between this poster and this year’s western The Magnificent Seven. Maybe we’re just crazy. Either way, tell us what you think about this announcement in the comment section below!
Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled to release in Fall 2017. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more!
