After an elaborate tease and a cryptic reveal, we’ve seen very little of Red Dead Redemption 2. The next entry in Rockstar’s Western franchise is due in 2017.
According to a serial leaker, who was responsible for leaking crucial details about GTA Online’s updates and what to expect, Red Dead Redemption 2 might have a lot more in common with GTA V.
“It'll be just like Redemption. Single player story, open world, stranger events, gang hideouts and all that shit. Three playable members of John's former gang, and John isn't one,” the source posted.
"Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience," Rockstar claimed on its site at the time of its reveal. However, the post from the leaker goes on to state the online mode that would “release later on, just like with GTA5”. If it showed up on day one, no one would play single-player and it would “crash the servers.”

The game is due in Fall 2017. While it hasn't explicitly listed the platforms it will be playable on, it appears to be exclusive to the PS4 and Xbox One if the absence of a PC or Steam logo on the site is to be believed.
