Despite teasing us for the past couple of days with some western style images, pretty much guarenteeing that an official announcement would be on its way, Rockstar Games announced today that the highly anticipated sequel to one of their best games in their library (a bold statement considering Rockstar also created Grand Theft Auto and Bully) Red Dead Redemption 2 has been officially announced.

While details on the title is limited at this time, Rockstar has stated to expect a trailer this Thursday and that we can expect the game to be out Fall 2017 for PS4 and Xbox One, like the original Red Dead Redemption, there is currently no plans for a PC release.

“With  Red Dead Redemption 2, the team is working hard to push forward our vision for interactive entertainment in a truly living world,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games.  “We hope to deliver players an epic experience that builds upon everything we’ve learned making games.”

It’ll be interesting to see how Rockstar will incorporate what they learned with GTAV, especially the Online factors, when bringing Red Dead to the new gen. We’ll get to see the game in action on Oct 20th at 11AM Eastern.
