Fraghero received an email from a reader who wishes to remain anonymous claiming that the game has been in development for over 4 years and is in fact called Red Dead Redemption 2 : Legends Of The West.
He also claimed that the game will be coming out in the fall of 2017 and Rockstar Games is going to announce it during E3 (which takes place in June) this year. He informed us that the game is going to contain more than one playable character and feature a much bigger open world than the last Red Dead title.
Our source claims to have acquired this information from an ex-Rockstar Games employee and has also informed us that a HD remake of the original Red Dead Redemption is in development for next-gen consoles and will be releasing by end of this year.
It is to be noted that Fraghero cannot independently verify any of this information and all of it should be taken with a grain of salt.
We’ve also conducted our own research about the possibility of a Red Dead Redemption announcement at E3 and things do seem to add up.
For starters, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two, had previously confirmed that Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto franchises are permanent.
