So it’s official Red Dead Redemption 2 will be here fall 2017

Red Dead Redemption 2

So it’s official (R*) Rockstar have announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 should be here fall 2017! Rockstar have released a trailer, well more of a continued teaser to add to the original image that was posted on Rockstars twitter feed. (Original Rockstar Post)

Red Dead Redemption 2 Story?

The trailer does really well at not giving away too much information on story or plots.

“Listen to me, when the time comes you got to run and don’t look back”


These being the only words spoken in the trailer and the only words that give a small story. So what does this mean? Are we going to take on the role of another outlaw. Would we be committing crimes and rampaging across the wild west or would the story be more based on survival, run, hide away and don’t look back as the trailer said.

The open world

The first thing you will notice about the trailer is the amazing visual results the landscapes look stunning. you can see vast open world mapping, wildlife and what looks like town shops or markets.

Let’s just hope we don’t have to grind animal furs again to advance our amour and weaponry.

The biggest question of them all is, what does this mean for us PC gamers?

The official Red Dead Redemption 2 YouTube video description states: for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One there is no mention of PC or additional platforms.

Wait so what does this mean for us PC gamers? Before I try to answer this question.

Sit back

Grab a handful of member berries and let me take you back to a time when GTA 5 wasn’t on PC.

Yes you read that correctly GTA 5 wasn’t on PC when the game first launched. There was a giant partition being signed by gamers around the world to show proof to (R*) Rockstar that we PC gamers want this game. (Personally I think it was to show proof that we would purchase the game rather than bootleg it.) Over a year later from its original launch the EPIC PC version was released in all its 60+ gigabytes of glory.

Because of past release of GTA5, I believe Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released for PC but don’t expect it to come out on its official release.


Did Rockstar Games just tease us with Red Dead Redemption 2?

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)

Personal Speculation

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.
