The cowboys of the midwest are set to ride again in the Rockstar Games trailer for the latest installment of the Red Dead Redemption series.

After three years consisting of Grand Theft Auto V updates and patches to its online multiplayer, Rockstar has announced Red Dead Redemption 2. Players who already have an account with Rockstar can now choose to subscribe to an email service called Rockstar Propaganda. The service alerts players to upcoming downloadable content for GTA V event weeks and announcements for new games.

Rockstar teased an image on its newswire on Oct. 16 which is located on their home website. To an unsuspecting audience it would have seemed that Rockstar decided to display their logo in red and black, but the community who has been following Rockstar since the early 2000s  instantly recognized that this was a teaser for another Red Dead Redemption game.

The official announcement and teaser trailer release for Red Dead Redemption 2 came out on Oct. 20 across all of Rockstar’s social media accounts. In the announcement, sent out via Rockstar Propaganda, they explain in a brief summary that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be an “epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland.” The game will also feature a vast and atmospheric world providing the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.
