Rockstar Games caused quite a stir a couple of days ago, putting up a new logo-clad in red. Many immediately tied it up to a possible “Red Dead Redemption 2” though it could have been done for something else. It turns out that the first guess was right and the sequel is not official.

“Red Dead Redemption 2” was made official via the company’s official Facebook page where versions for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are to be expected. Backing all that up is the scheduled release of the game’s official trailer this Oct. 20 at 11 a.m. ET on the Facebook, Rockstargames.com, YouTube, and Twitch.

This douses water on the previous post covering the mystery red logo. The move was initially linked to “Red Dead Revolver”, a classic game released for the PS2 way back in 2004. The game was recently resurrected via the PlayStation Network with improved 1080p graphics.

Regardless, the fact remained that most wanted a “Red Dead Redemption 2” and they are now getting just that, Forbes reported. With the confirmation of “Red Dead Redemption 2”, gamers are ecstatic to see what new features the game would come with. It will narrate the epic tale of America’s unforgiving heartland with details still kept under wraps.

Equally interesting is whether Rockstar Games will officially roll out a version for the PC. No PC version came out for “Red Dead Redemption” so folks who prefer to enjoy online multiplayer games will keep a close eye out for that as well.

Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser did give his bit on the surprise announcement of “Red Dead Redemption 2”. Houser revealed how the development team is working hard to make the sequel align with their vision of delivering an interactive game in a truly living world, Attack of the Fan Boy reported. After seven years, the changes applied will certainly be something worth checking in 2017.
