Another day another rumor of when Rockstar Games is going to reveal Red Dead Redemption 2 (which would actually be the third Red Dead game, but no one remembers the mediocre first one). However, this is a Twitter rumor so take this with a the smallest of grains of salt. But according to this rumor Rockstar is going to be at the PlayStation 4 Neo reveal in New York next month and will also reveal Red Dead Redemption 2 at the event.
Two things raise a red flag for me about this being true. First up is that this event has been kind of centered around the PlayStation 4 Neo, which, it’s existence has been linked to the PlayStation VR and the fact that VR won’t run that smoothly on the current PS4. My guess would be if there are any games revealed that they’ll either be VR games or games exclusive to Sony, which I doubt Red Dead would be.
Secondly, Red Dead Redemption just went live on Xbox One’s backwards comparability and a lot of rumors have stemmed from that linking it to an Xbox One exclusive or at least a timed exclusive because of that. I would guess that Rockstar would only piggy back on an announcement at another company’s event if their game was going to be exclusive for that system and given that a lot of Red Dead’s player base were on Xbox (especially since the backwards compatibility shot sales of the game up 9000%) I would guess if it were to be exclusive it would be on the Xbox, but that is leaving way too much money out there for this franchise, it will be multiplatform.
Lastly, maybe, just maybe, this rumor is partly true and Rockstar, in a separate event will announce Red Dead next month. At this point who knows, but I want this game so you best believe we’ll be reporting on every rumor we hear.
