It's Official, Red Dead Redemption 2 is Coming Next Year

By Keza MacDonald on at

Rockstar just confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 - teased over the past couple of days - will be out in Autumn 2017. We can expect a debut trailer in a couple of days, on October 20th at 4pm UK time.

It's coming to PS4 and Xbox One (no word on PC), and will include both single-player and a "brand new multiplayer online experience" set in the same world, says Rockstar. Other than that we've no more details, save this from Sam Houser:

"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."

Mildly disappointing that they've gone for Red Dead Redemption 2 instead of following in the tradition of Red Dead Revolver/Redemption - this list of possible titles is still up for grabs, Rockstar, if you change your mind.
