'Red Dead Redemption 2' News: Rockstar Has Confirmed Game Will Be Released In 2017
"Red Dead Redemption 2" is coming back to town and players are going gaga over the news. Rockstar has just announced that they will release the sequel to "Red Dead Redemption" during fall of 2017.
Rockstar has been known to be tight-lipped about the details of their video games and this time is no exception. The announcement was sparse with just a post on their official Twitter account featuring the silhouette of seven cowboys in front of a red landscape with the title "Red Dead Redemption 2" emblazoned on the top part of the screen.
Rockstar also released a statement saying that they plan on upping the ante on their upcoming video game. Sam Houser, one of the founders of Rockstar Games, implied that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will be much bigger than its predecessor when he said that they intend to give their loyal players an "epic experience" when they start playing the upcoming game.
Houser and Rockstar didn't provide enough details about the upcoming game but they did say that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will be a "brand-new online multiplayer experience," which could mean that they'll feature something different from their previous installments in the "Red Dead" series.
Some speculate that Rockstar may push the envelope further in the multiplayer component. According to GameSpot, "Red Dead Redemption 2's" predecessor had a multiplayer feature but through Rockstar's statements it might be possible that they'll add more to that aspect to make the sequel much grander.
Based on Rockstar's announcement it seems that there will also be limitations to the upcoming game. According to Kotaku, the predecessor of "Red Dead Redemption 2" was only available to Xbox One and PS4 and Rockstar never released a "Red Dead Redemption" game for PC. Seeing that they also didn't announce a release of "Red Dead Redemption 2" for PC it's possible that they also never will for this upcoming installment.
