After releasing the biggest entertainment title of all time in Grand Theft Auto V back in 2013, Rockstar Games got to work on whatever was next for them. Heading into E3 2016 earlier this year whispers abounded that their next release would be a sequel to their hit western Red Dead Redemption, and many eagerly awaited the big reveal during the convention. But sadly it never came. Whether that was because Rockstar saw all of those whispers and wanted to wait for more of a surprise reveal or they were working on something else entirely, nobody knew.

Beginning earlier this week they released a couple of teases that had fans losing their minds hoping it was hints of an incoming sequel confirmation. Many others, however, thought it was more likely something related to the first Redemption or even its predecessor Red Dead Revolver becoming available on PS4. But now, passing up the usual big reveal during one of the video game events, Rockstar has released a simple post confirming that Red Dead Redemption 2 is real, when a first trailer will be released, and when you can expect to play it. You can find all of that below.

It began on Sunday when Rockstar uploaded a simple image of their logo with a red background:

That alone was enough to ignite the excitement of their hungry fanbase. Rockstar then toyed with our emotions a little more, releasing a new image definitely Red Dead related but not an official confirmation of a sequel:

Then, earlier today, Rockstar made it official with yet another image:

Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 Confirmation

Not a whole lot is known about the game yet. All that’s been said about it is this:

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.

What we do know is that, so long as all goes according to current plans, we’ll be waist deep in good ol’ fashioned wild west lawlessness in one year when Red Dead Redemption 2 arrives on Xbox One and PS4.

On top of that, you won’t have to wait long to get your first look at it either. The first trailer will be released in just a couple of days on Thursday morning. So be sure to check back here then to watch it over and over and over again!
