“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.”
The official announcement comes after Rockstar teased on Sunday by changing their social media avatars to red and black, the iconic colours of 2010’s critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption.
The following day they also released an image of the same seven characters against the dusk sunset.
