Knowing Rockstar with their previous releases, probably a 2017 launch but delayed for 2018.

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

Red Dead Redemption 2 will release worldwide in Fall 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer on October 20th.

I'm a little disappointed they took the '2' route, as Red Dead Redemption was already the second in the series, though I guess maybe this indicates a direct sequel?

Whilst I enjoyed RDR for the most part, I don't really get the hype, I got about 3/4 of the way through RDR and was bored.

This is a prequel to RDR. I too felt RDR got a bit tedious in parts but to me, the ending is amazing and powerful. Defintely one of the better endings I have played. Unfortunately you got to keep at it. I hope Rockstar learn from this and perhaps follow the GTA V style and tighten up the intensity and flow of the story.

As for the story, my guess based on the picture is that third from the right is Bill Williamson and people have speculated the centre dude is John Marston. If that is the case my take is that they will be telling the story of when John Marston was in the gang and explore the events that led him to quit the gang and go straight, so to speak.

I am stoked being a huge western fan and the multiplayer , if they implement what they learnt from GTA V.

Trailer looks good, captures the setting well. Hopefully they dont put busy work like picking flowers in it - the wild west is full of possibilities.....and picking flowers isnt high on my list of things to do.

In the scene with the canoe there is a dream catcher hanging from the tree....... native Americans perhaps in the game?

Looking forward to some gameplay footage over the next 12 months.

Completed the first one on the x360, Loved it! At one point I did give it a break as its a big game, then really got back into it later to finish it.

Looks like it's going to be visually stunning as the first was for its time. I agree with @SmashedPumpkin though, more story driven content and less busy work might keep me playing.

I'm also a western fan. Played Gun, RDR 1&2, a bit of Call of Juarez, and a number of games on PC. Red Dead Redemption was excellent in my opinion. What attracts me to Redemption 2 though is the way they are talking up Red Dead Online. Being the fat Mexican bandido in Redemption was fun, but if they bring in features from GTA Online it will be a great drawcard. I would really love to see a heist system for red dead. Robbing the bank, the train, etc.

News of redemption 2 has spurred me (pun intended) to load up RDR on the xbone. Copied across all my data from 360, so I can just carry on where I left off. Still have a few things to get for some of the outfits. I was surprised to see people still playing multiplayer.

Will definitely be on the lookout for special editions as I missed out on golden guns, deadly assassin outfit and warhorse in the original and regretted it. I know these items get superseded thru the game but they were good value up the start. Deadly assassin outfit also reminded so much of Lee Van Cleef.

They do sell currency in GTA Online but everything is free and able to be worked towards if you're not lazy whereas EA and Bungie believe in the RNG system of lootboxes which is cancer.

Yeah not so much loot boxes, but microtransactions. Whilst GTA Online isnt quite pay to win, some of the things are so ridiculously expensive that it would be tempting for people to drop cash for their quick fix.

I have fond memories of RDR's online.. standing high on a rock watching out for cougars as a mate hunted animals.. only to be jumped from behind by the damn cougar myself.. those things were quick.. and having some epic shoot outs across the map with randoms. Hoping that RDR2's MP is worthwhile

America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Gtav made over a billion dollars in lootboxes, so it's most likely going to be in there. They probably just won't officially sell the game in Belgium or Norway due to the gambling laws.

As far as I know GTA V did not have lootboxes at all - it was all shark cards (buy in game multiplayer cash with real money). This type of system is not affected by gambling laws.

I expect the EU to ban loot boxes once a few countries do it. It's how EA handles the FIFA cash cow will be the telling tale. I say sucked in for being Derek's.

Yeah I'll definitely pick this up on PS4. I actually enjoyed the MP in the first one quite a bit, but I imagine this time around it'll be far more GTA:O like.
