6 years has passed without a word from Rockstar about whether a second game will come out. Though technically it will be the third in its series, the first isn’t counted with the main series of Red Dead.
Red Dead Redemption 2 got a small trailer released and in it, we got to meet the magnificent seven… or more just seven people in a posse. Though nothing has been revealed at all, we can guess three things from this. Either the game will be at the time main character John Marston from Red Dead Redemption was in his posse and wreaked havoc around the Wild West. It could also be a sequel following Marston’s son Jack in his adventure just after the first game was finished, or it could take place at the same time as the first game but we follow a complete new protagonist.
There are many possibilities as to what the game will be about but a thing that was clear to make out from the trailer is that everything shown was ingame engine, not only that but it looked to be an improved version of the engine that was used to make GTA V. It’s clear to see how much more polygon could be set in the world assets and character models.
Overall I’m glad to see a new Red Dead is coming out next year, though I can take it if gets delayed. It not only looked good and promising, it also seemed to be bigger and have more to explore with more wild life encounters than before due to limited hardware.
I hope that Rockstar will unveil more at maybe Playstation Experience this year, however they shouldn’t take too long withholding small bits of information since it has been proven we the gamers can hype ourselves too much up. Though Rockstar has a good record of being straight with gamers and living up to their promises.
So, let me know down in the comments what your opinion about a new Red Dead, I’m interested in knowing your point of view on this, if you even are interested in this.
Stay cozy and have a nice day!
