There is a trailer coming October 20th at 11 AM ET. Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release in the Fall of 2017. While it is not concrete, the game appears to only be coming to PS4 and Xbox One in the interim. Like GTA V before it, I imagine a PC version will come eventually. Not much else has been revealed, however the page Rockstar used for the game reveal does briefly mention multiplayer. Rockstar says, ” The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience. ” What this means for the series remains unclear. However it is pretty easy to bet that there will be some form of Shark Card like microcurrency for players to purchase to their hearts content.
