New Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer could be coming this Thursday, claims source below
Grand theft Auto developers Rockstar Games took everyone by surprise yesterday by dropping official artwork and teasing Red Dead in the most Rockstar way possible on their social media accounts.
This was followed up earlier today with a new Red Dead tease that all but confirms a new game in the Wild West series.
The image has also been shared across all social channels for Rockstar and the Rockstar newswire, but they’ve not provided any further information beyond sharing the actual image.
Earlier this year the games new map was supposedly leaked via Neogaf, which we’ve written about at length here: New Red Dead Redemption 2 Map LEAKED. This rumour was given some validity when TechRadar confirmed the legitimacy of the map, saying:
“A source close to the development of the new Red Dead game has now confirmed to us that the map is indeed the real deal, revealing that this is a “very recent” art direction map for the upcoming title.”
Reports suggest that we might see a new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer as early as Thursday.
The news comes courtesy of ex-TechRadar writer Hugh Langley. It’s possible it might even be released earlier according to Langley.
