Rockstar Games might be just about to announce news related to Red Dead Redemption, as the studio’s Twitter and Facebook accounts just featured the game’s red version of its logo instead of the traditional back and yellow or white one. However, no words have been said by the studio.
Back in April, an image featuring a map made fans wonder if that could be related to Red Dead Redemption 2. But now with the recently posted image on the Rockstar Games’ accounts and official website, these speculations appear to be true, confirming thus an entirely new game for Red Dead, long-awaited by the game’s fans.
A follow-up for Red Dead Redemption
Just a teaser image on a social network could mean more than words for fans. On Sunday morning, Rockstar Games updated its Twitter and Facebook profile pictures with a red on black logo. It is fundamental to remember that red is related to the Red Dead Redemption’ visual aesthetic, used in promotional artwork and its loading screens. And later, the company posted the same image on the official website, which makes us believe something is going on with Red Dead Redemption, in spite of the fact that no word has been uttered yet by the developers.
Rockstar Games is one of the first developers in all gaming, and it seems as if the company can’t stop achieving success. When the company is not busy making new entries in the popular “Grand Theft Auto” game series, it is trying to make up new ways to upgrade other games. In 2012, it released “Max Payne 3” an action-adventure journey through Brazil. And now it seems to be the time for Red Dead Redemption 2.
What could this teaser mean?
Red Dead Redemption is an open world, western-inspired, action-adventure video game, which was first released in 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. It is the second title of the Red Dead Franchise. The first one was published in 2004, and it was called Red Dead Revolver. The game is set in the year 1911, and it follows the adventures of John Marston – a former outlaw – through the American Frontier. Marston’s family are taken as hostages by the government in ransom for his services as a hired gun. The game is set to be played from a third person perspective. As well, there is an online multiplayer mode that allows 16 players to take part in the same game.
The game was praised for its visuals, its music, gameplay, and story. It has sold around 14 million copies, and some websites consider it as the greatest video game of all time. So, that is why social media has gone mad after the recent publication.
Some have said that this could not be a new version of the game, but an enhanced release of the game to adapt it for newer consoles, since it is not playable on PlayStation 4. While others have dared to say there is, in fact, a new game coming, linking the recent update with the map published by Rockstar early this year. Anyway, it seems that we will be hearing more about this in the days to come.
