Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to 2010's mega popular Red Dead Redemption and is also a Western action-adventure video game developed and published by Rockstar Games. It is scheduled to be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018 with a PC release later. It's the third entry in the Red Dead series and follows the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan, a member of the Dutch van der Linde gang.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed multiple times and is rumored to potentially include a first-person mode (similar to Grand Theft Auto 5's first-person mode it got upon re-release on current-gen consoles and PC), a battle royale type mode for its multiplayer alongside Revive and Survive and Money Grab modes. Its open-world reportedly embraces its day-and-night cycles with NPCs and shops closing for the evening. New vehicles may be added including horse carts and fully realized trains, and there may even be a social companion app which includes poker.
