It seems Rockstar Games does not want to keep players waiting. And it seems players are finally getting a Red Dead Redemption 2. The studio posted yet another enigmatic image on their various accounts.
This time, the image appears to be a painted silhouette of seven cowboys in front of a setting sun. Players will immediately recognize the red backdrop, yet another symbolism for the popular Red Dead Redemption game.
According to what we can see in the Rockstar Games’ Twitter account, this is the second Red Dead Redemption content in a few years.

Does this mean players will finally get a Red Dead Redemption 2?
Rockstar Games already tweeted a picture of a new “version” of its logo. Fans will remember it in a distinct shade of red. However, Rockstar Games has not responded regarding the matter.
According to Polygon, Red Dead Redemption has received backward compatibility for the Xbox One. This also includes other Rockstar games such as its Undead Nightmare DLC and its Game of the Year Edition.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Where do we begin?
Red Dead Redemption is originally an open-world game released in 2010. Its Western theme and diverse story have generated a positive reaction from both fans and critics. Some even called it the “best” game on both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
The game stars John Marston who is forced to work for an unruly gang after his family was taken hostage. Red Dead Redemption is played in a third-person perspective while they traverse the Western United States.
Interestingly, Red Dead Redemption 2 rumors do not stop with a sequel. Some are even waiting for the announcement for years.
Fans were waiting for a Red Dead Redemption 2 to come out. Others hoped a teaser way back in E3 and Tokyo Game Show. However, it appears Rockstar Games want to be intimate with fans.
There appears to be a leaked map as well, detailing quite a large game area with a lack of railroads. This might mean the new game is a prequel, or perhaps a new game entirely.
Another interesting segment of the aforementioned map is New Bordeaux, the setting of Mafia 3 which occurs somewhere in the future. The game is also a game from Take-Two Interactive, the parent company for Rockstar Games.
