Rockstar games confirmed the development of the follow-up to the hit 2010 western sandbox by releasing a teaser trailer for the game. The game is set to take full advantage of current gen consoles and will no doubt harness the extra processing power of upcoming incremental console upgrades (Xbox Scorpio, Playstation 4 Pro).
Not much is known in terms of story but the developer has mentioned the game “is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland”. But the change of the logo on all of Rockstar’s social media pages on October 17 hints at what could be expected. In the late 1800s, the Texas Rangers were formed on that very day protecting their namesake from invaders and hostiles.
The open game world is also said to provide the foundation for a new online multiplayer experience. The trademark of Red Dead Online hints at an experience similar to Grand Theft Auto Online.
Red Dead Redemption will be releasing in Fall 2017 for Xbox One and PS4. No word on a PC release yet.
