Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally on its way for the gamers who have been waiting for almost an eternity to get their hands on the third edition of the franchise. Rockstar, developer of the game is finally free after releasing their latest installment, Mafia 3 and has hinted on its various social media platforms that Read Dead 3 could be their next release.
Rockstar have posted a mysterious image on their social media circles today which could be a possible teaser for Red Dead Redemption 2, or something else related to the franchise. The image, which is largely dominated by red and black, is devoid of a caption. However, it does show seven characters walking with the sun setting in their background.
One of those seven characters is placed at the center. One could expect that he could be the leader of the pack, or could be the main character of the game. It cannot be assumed however that one could play the game with multiple protagonists or they could be part of some kind of a gang. But, things do look interesting at this point of time.
This is not the first tease by Rockstar regarding the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. They did change their logo on every single social media platform on October 16, 2016 to an old fashioned Rockstar logo in red. This started the speculation that the game is finally on its way towards an official release date.
There was also a leaked map which came out in April, 2016 which indicated that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a prequel. This would indeed make a lot of sense since the motto of the game is the dying west. It would be natural for the franchise to go back around 10-20 years when a lot of the outlaws were alive, according to Tech Radar.
Another interesting reveal from the teased image shows that one of the characters is holding two weapons. This could mean that the upcoming game could feature dual wielding option, which was not present in the Red Dead Redemption universe.
Six of the characters highlighted in the image were wearing cowboy hats, except one. This character could be female, most probably Abigail in her younger years. There are a lot of speculations which state that the gang shown in the image could be The Duchess Gang.
However, the image could also signify that Red Dead Redemption 2 could feature a complete new set of outlaws. It is being expected that the trailer of the game will be released very very soon.
