The official Rockstar Twitter feed has posted an image that has sent the internweb in to a frenzy. It’s a simple image, the Rockstar logo on a plain background, but it can mean only one thing. There is a new Red Dead game in the works.
I would wager that this is the start of a very long teaser campaign, simply because no one announces games around Christmas, so I would expect a full reveal in January.
Rockstar has tweeted a new image today, this time with seven silhouettes against a sun. There are theories that the next Red Dead could be a prequel set in the years when John Marston was with his gang, or this is to signify the story going in a Magnificent Seven direction. The other option is that the image is related to the multiplayer.
2K have registered the domain name Red Dead Online. With the online component of GTA being so popualr it is unsurprising that Read Dead would follow suit.
