After the teases and subsequent reveal that came earlier this week, Rockstar Games is set to debut the trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 today. The trailer goes live at 8am PT (11am ET, 3pm GMT), and you’ll find it embedded above.
Once the trailer hits YouTube, we’ll swap players. Expect a gallery of screenshots soon after that. We know the game is slated for Fall 2017 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That’s right; Rockstar hasn’t announced a PC version.
We’ll have as much Red Dead Redemption 2 news as possible throughout the day.
Is Red Dead Redemption 2 a prequel?
The “2” in the name suggests Red Dead Redemption 2 is a direct sequel. The seven figures in the teaser images match up with the now dead members of Dutch’s Gang, potentially including John Marston.
We don’t know if this is a sequel or prequel, but today’s reveal should clarify that question.
I’ve heard a fan theory that suggests Rockstar will take a Godfather II approach to this game. That is, the story will split between events in the past and current time. That would ease both theories, wouldn’t it?
