Rockstar Games is planning a new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer that looks set to go down the live-action path, according to new reports.
While nothing has been officially confirmed by the Grand Theft Auto developer yet, evidence certainly suggests that a new trailer for the hotly anticipated action-adventure sequel is in the works. The news stems from a film crew who were spotted in Montana’s Fort Peck Indian Reservation, who confirmed in an interview that they were working on a promotional video shot in the vicinity of an early 1900s church. No names were dropped, but it’s very likely this pertains to Red Dead Redemption 2.
Why? Well, for starters the promotional video includes two actors kitted out in Wild West-themed clothing, who were scrapping with each other near the church while a train chugged along in the background. The film’s producer, Jeff Guillot, let slip that the video is being used to promote an upcoming video game. He went on to say that the game in question is a sequel to a popular series, will be an open-world title, and the sequence they were shooting is set within an in-game location known as Hope Country.
Again, we’ll reiterate that nothing has been confirmed by official sources such as Rockstar or Take-Two, but from all the info above, we can extrapolate that the trailer in question indeed relates to Red Dead Redemption 2.
Announced back in October of last year, Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled for release on PS4 and Xbox One in late 2017. While a concrete release date has yet to be confirmed, it has been reported the game will launch on October 3. Much of the game’s storyline is being kept under wraps, Rockstar has confirmed that it will feature an extensive online component similar to what the studio has done with GTA Online, and it appears the game will include a larger cast than the original title, with seven potential heroes headlining the sequel.
