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 vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.
Rockstar unveiled Red Dead Redemption 2 to much fanfare back in October 2016, and there's very good reason for that. Its predecessor is often cited as one of the best Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games ever made, its wide open Western world and mature storyline standing well above its contemporaries - including its sister series, Grand Theft Auto. As the weeks tick past, we continue to arrive closer to its planned Fall 2017 release date.
Thing is, outside of a trailer and a handful of details we can glean from interviews and investor calls, we don't really know all that much about what this hotly anticipated sequel holds in store for us. That hasn't stopped us from analyzing frames and making educated guesses on what Red Dead Redemption 2 is all about. From its cast of characters, to its map, to its potential GTA Online-influenced multiplayer mode, here's everything we know about Red Dead Redemption 2.
