Hoping they announced its not called Red Dead Redemption 2... but something akin to the other naming conventions from the two previous titles...god please don't be a Marston sequel!!

EDIT: I hope they go way back into the 19th..a Marston cameo would be cool, but RS can fuck right on off if its really called Red Dead Redemption 2.

lol!! Money?!..thats not even my concern, RS could've called it anything, doesn't change my perceptions on naming conventions. getting into a debate with you or others on my opinion is not my intention... just fucking hate - and even more fucking hate that title if it has nothing to do with the Redemption - which ended fine..Jack got his vengeance, end of story lets move on.

Red Dead is what makes the money not the 2

I don't think they're calling it "Red Dead Redemption 2" just because it's related to the first "Red Dead Redemption".

I think they want the franchise to be recognized as "Red Dead Redemption" Like "Grand Theft Auto".

There will be Red Dead Redemption 3, 4, 5... regardless of whether the plot is related or not.

From TakeTwo's homepage

The Rockstar Games label was founded in 1998 to create the most innovative and progressive interactive entertainment. Publishers of such popular game franchises as Grand Theft Auto, Midnight Club, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne, Bully, Manhunt and more.

The games success established it as the brand pretty much. I mean a lot of people even today don't know that it was actually the second title in the Red Dead franchise, so going with RDR2 was no surprise really.

It could be called Red Dead Dandelions for all I care I just want it. loo

A writer should know how to properly use an ellipsis, and that they contain three dots not two. So I guess this is a round about way of asking what anime fanfic you write.

Due to marketing agreements we won't see X gameplay, or at least X graphics identified as such. They'll probably use the base PS4 like they did with the first trailer. Still, it'll be amazing.

Of course it does. GTA V didn't sell a billion dollars worth in two days because of the unreleased online mode. The SP will still be God tier.

Kinda having doubts it's actually a new trailer but rather something like a reveal for Game Informer's November issue.

First, it's kind of weird not to specifically state a new trailer is coming Thursday When in the past Rockstar has always explicitly mentioned and hyped up a trailer release for Max Payne 3, GTAV and even RDR2's announcement trailer:
http://www.rockstargames.com/newswir...ch-the-trailer

Secondly, even though Reiner tweeted out that "Thursday should be fun" somebody did ask him if it was a cover reveal for October's issue. He said "No" but then October's issue was Shadow of War and has been on shelves awhile now. lol
The last part is that Game Informer's EIC Andy McNamara retweeted Rockstar's announcement:
https://twitter.com/gi_andymc?lang=en

I mean honestly I'd be more hyped for a GI reveal. It means we would get new art and pages of new screens and full details along with GI providing a months worth of coverage on their site. It also could see Rockstar dropping a second trailer, if they don't on Thursday, in October during the coverage similar to how it went down for GTAV's GI cover story.

I just can't bring myself to get excited at all, since we won't be able to buy the PC version for at least another 18 months or so. And I loved RDR, this wait will be harder than the GTA one.

I would not be surprised at all if they somehow manage to get a next-gen version out before the PC version again. :P

GI covers typically occur on the first Tuesday of the month. I could see next week's reveal being a trailer and then a full blowout with a GI cover the week after.

I'm expecting a solid trailer and a May 2018 release date. Don't think that it will be a delay simply because why would you hype up a delay with an announcement and a trailer?

With the success of GTAV online and there being disappointment with no single player story expansions, im thinking Take Two does something with RDR 2 that as far as I know has never been done before - not one but two "passes".

The first pass would be an "online season pass" which would consist of online only stuff including maps, items, weapons, etc. and the second pass would be a "story expansion pass" which would consist of two single player story expansions that would be released in 2019.

Of course, this is just my own personal wild out there idea that popped into my head while watching ACG's current international podcast and they were talking about what we could see on the 28th. I do believe that if there's a developer that could push it effectively despite people hating the publisher, it's Rockstar.

we'll not be getting a PC announcement for a good while after the game actually launches on consoles. gotta get them double dips. GTA V PC wasn't announced until 9 months after it came out on PS3/360 and it didn't actually release for another 10 months.

assuming the same happens again (probably not exactly) and we get RDR2 in March-June 2018 then that'd mean a December-March 2019 announcement with a release in October 2019-January 2020 for PC

i wouldn't even be surprised if the game is delayed on consoles until late 2018. at that point it wouldn't be crazy to see a PC release well into 2020. by then i expect next gen consoles will be out or just around the corner. they might even hold out for those to release new versions likey they did with GTA V and hold out on PC version until well after next gen versions release. This way it'd tempt people to triple dip. Sell them current gen versions, remaster for next gen, and release PC. Can't be having the PC version, which will look/run way better than any console, come out before next gen. They don't care about PC so why not just hold it back until 2021 or something.

that doesn't make any sense at all. why does that mean the trailer is gonna talk about RDRO?

they own Red Dead and "your friend" had no right to make that domain so they have seized it. It's no secret they are making a Red Dead Online so yeah they don't want anyone else using it.

hey maybe they will show off Red Dead Online but just because the domain was seized doesn't mean that's what the trailer is gonna be about.

Well, for sure they're gonna share more than just RDRO, but I say that because the timing just feels really close.

Of course I can be completely wrong and they just announce a release date and show off some gameplay, but I feel like it's going to be that case where Rockstar is going to release two trailers again, one for the story and the other for online, just like they did for GTAV.

Also why did you quote "your friend"?

well the way you made it sound was that it was gonna be about just Red Dead Online. it's a bit stupid to assume that based on a domain being seized.

Ah, I understand.

I can also understand not believing me either, but really, it is my friend. He made NaturalVision, if you go to reddeadonline.com, it redirects to his mod. I don't know why it still redirects to his mod right now but in the next week or so I'm absolutely sure it's going to redirect to something of Rockstar's.

Yeah. I guess the announcement image is on the video player on Rockstar's site too so it's gotta be a trailer.

If it announces the release date for May 2018 then hopefully the CE announcements will be right around the corner too.

Yeah I don't think it will be delayed again. The last time a Rockstar title got multiple delays was Max Payne 3 and before that, GTAIV.

I'm not sure about online. For me personally I hope it's something like GTA Online except better executed, in that it's a believeable consistent world allowing you to create your own character with full customization for clothing, weapons, mounts etc. Allow you to purchase a plot of land or a homestead and offer multiple professions that the world reacts too.
Perhaps be a hunter or a saloon owner. Maybe a player or gang of players is causing trouble in a region or town and they need a sheriff or Marshall that you can take up and round up a posse take care of. Or place your own wanted poster up to attract bounty hunter players to hunt them down.

Online has some fantastic potential depending on far they go. I think they'll obviously offer up something akin to micro transactions and shark cards again which will likely mean their updates would be free.

It's hard to speculate about SP DLC though. The idea of GTAV SP DLC was always weird to me because of the story having multiple endings and honestly I was more interested in Online and progressing my character. Maybe Rockstar gathered that data too, that more players were invested and spending their time in Online than single player and shifted their resources accordingly.

shit sorry for the long ramble but to say I'm excited for RDR2 and Thursday's news is an understatement. lol
