Red Dead Redemption 2 revealed, coming late 2017

Brodie Fogg 18 October 2016


Everyone's eyes have been on Rockstar's Twitter account for the past few days, and all for good reason.

Rockstar has officially announced its upcoming Red Dead title via its Twitter account, titled Red Dead Redemption 2 with a release window of late 2017. A trailer is also on the way, due on 20 October at 11AM ET (which translates to 2am AEDT on 21 October in Australia). Get keen folks.

The sequel to the immensely popular Red Dead Redemption will look to "lay the foundation" for a brand new online experience. Here's the full spiel from Rockstar's site:

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.

The website also offers an ever so slightly closer look at the gang who grace the banner.

It has been a crazy few days for Rockstar and Red Dead fans. All it took was a simple palette change to the company's iconic logo and the internet was thrown into a frenzy. That palette change (seen below) reflected the beloved Western series' trademark red, so the tease was a no-brainer from the beginning for anyone paying attention.


However, the very next day Rockstar followed up with a more mysterious silhouette of seven gunslingers set against a painted sunset. Many theories and hilarious memes have already come from that second image, which everyone assumed depicted the game's lead characters.


Shortly after the second image was leaked, some keen followers surfaced some interesting info regarding a domain name registered by Take Two entertainment. appears to have been registered by Take Two back in August of 2015, but has since seen some action and was last updated earlier this year.
