News has just broken that Rockstar Games’ much anticipated sequel to Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released in Fall of 2017 with a trailer coming this Thursday, October 20th.

This release strategy is similar to that of the highly successful Grand Theft Auto V, with Rockstar slowly and mysteriously teasing the game before fully announcing it. However, Red Dead Redemption 2‘s announcement seems noticeably faster, with a trailer out in only two days.
Rockstar has stated that Red Dead Redemption 2 will release for Xbox One and PS4, but with a PC version releasing later in the game’s life cycle being a strong bet.
