Baseless Speculation About Red Dead Redemption 2 So Rampant, Even Rockstar Getting In On It

Come on. Like anyone is going to believe that.



Ever since the 2010 release of Rockstar Games' open world western epic, Red Dead Redemption, fans have been clamoring for a sequel. This wishful thinking has led to rampant speculation for years about the project being in development, along with bonus rumormongering like word of a PC release of the original game or a next generation remaster. The speculation reached a fever pitch last week when Rockstar games published a teaser showing their logo on a red background, prompting fans to go wild under the belief that this surely meant Red Dead Redemption 2 was finally in the works.

As if that weren't bad enough, Rockstar has continued to fan the flames this week, releasing a teaser image that heavily implies the sequel is in development, going so far as to actually put the title "Red Dead Redemption 2" and a release date of Fall, 2017 on the image. In a tweet containing the image, Rockstar repeated the lie, and even promised a trailer would be coming out later this week.

We here at The Outhouse don't know what kind of games Rockstar is playing (though we speculate "video"), but they should know that it's wrong to instill false hope in your fans. We hope Rockstar realizes how cruel this prank is and comes clean with everyone soon.

We'll be watching, and we'll be sure to keep you updated.
