If you’re on Twitter like me, I bet you follow the awesome R* aka Rockstar @RockstarGames the official home of Rockstar Games on Twitter. Wait….rewind! For those who are new to the gaming/console gaming world, Rockstar Games are publishers of popular games such as Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne, Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, Bully & more. Now let’s fast forward and press play…..
If you’re a huge fan of Rockstar Games then you might have noticed a post that has stormed the gaming world! A very simple image that is liked by many and retweeted by the thousands. But why? What makes this image so special? it is just a simple red background with a silhouette of seven people blacked out.
Spaghetti Western by Rockstar
Could this be… no, no it couldn’t… John Marston died at the end… But his son… No I’m jumping to too many variables. What about Red Dead Revolver? That was a prequel right? could this be a pre prequel? Wait a minute… what about the western version of Seven Samurai, the Magnificent Seven?
No, no and no let’s just wait for more information from Rockstar, before rumours start escalating on what the game could be.
While excited and impulsive I visited the Rockstar website only to get hit with the same image as the splash screen, but could this be what we have all been waiting for? Could this be a part two, the long awaited Red Dead Redemption sequel?
Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption
Like many gamers out there that fondly remember Red Dead Redemption on the PS3 and Xbox 360 who kept expecting a part two, but it was never delivered, this could be that moment or could it?
Why was this game never ported for PC?
Basic story John Marston, a former outlaw whose wife and son are taken hostage by the government in ransom for his services as a hired gun. Having no other choice, Marston sets out to bring the three members of his former gang to justice. (wiki)
Would John Marston be in the next game?
I personally doubt it as he died at the end of Red Dead Redemption. Rockstar are known for bringing something new and different to the table, for example Carl Johnson from GTA San Andreas, Nico Bellic from GTA 4 and the epic Trevor Philips from GTA 5 was a completely different spin.
Would it follow on the same story line?
Again, judging from what Rockstar have done in the past, I think this would be a completely new games story but set in the same world.
