Red Dead Redemption 2

According to the developer Rockstar Games, the release of the long-awaited Red Dead Redemption 2 will be postponed to 2018. The second part of the series will be released for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the first title Rockstar is developing from the ground up for the latest generation of consoles. To adequately implement the epic work and to offer the millions of fans the best possible experience, it simply takes time. To fully utilize all the capabilities of the new generation of consoles, it is necessary to write the code from scratch.

The team can definitely be right about this, the expectations of the community are high. Red Dead Redemption 1, released in 2010 for Xbox 360, Xbox One and Playstation 3, was a huge success with over 14 million copies sold.

The story of Red Dead Redemption 1

The open world title is set in 1911, towards the end of the era that went down in history as the Wild West. The player, in the role of the main character John Marston, tries to take out the outlaw Bill Williamson, but fails and remains shot. The prologue ends with his accidental rescue by Bonnie MacFarlane, who finds Marston and takes care of her on her ranch.
In the following main story, more and more of the background is revealed and the player learns that Marston himself was an outlaw. As a gang member, he was part of a failed robbery along with Williamson and was left dying.
