With a single logo image, Rockstar Games has seemingly begun teasing an announcement on the future of the Red Dead franchise.
A wordless tweet (below) features the Rockstar logo on top of the mottled red texture used in art for Red Dead Redemption, leading many to believe the announcement of a sequel is incoming.
A Red Dead Redemption sequel has been rumoured for some time, following the apparent leak of the game’s map (tellingly featuring the city of New Bordeaux, the setting for fellow Take-Two published game, Mafia 3). That same leak suggested the game would be a prequel, and be set to the east of the last game.
Take-Two recently announced that Rockstar was “of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.”
Of course, there’s also chance that this could be a current-gen re-release of Red Dead Redemption, in the vein of Grand Theft Auto V. Redemption was recently made backwards compatible on Xbox One, leading to a sales rise of 6000%.
