Red Dead Redemption 2

Over the weekend, Rockstar Games hinted at the next installment of the Red Dead series. Now, we have an official announcement.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming... Fall 2017.

Rockstar Games took to Twitter to make the announcement, while revealing that the first trailer drops Thursday (Oct. 20) at 11 am ET.

The original dropped in 2010 to critical acclaim. The sequel comes nearly seven years later, and is being billed as "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."

Further details, however, are currently unknown.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for a Fall 2017 release.
