The very idea of a potential Red Dead Redemption sequel has enthralled fans for over a year, and now, with the news finally breaking that we’re getting another game in fall 2017, it’s leading digital cowboys and bandits to wonder what’s coming. We all saw the leaked map that shows a crossover between Red Dead 2 and Mafia 3, and now we know that the game is a prequel with some favorites coming back.
Redditor BlueSaber80 has figured it out, and it wasn’t even that well hidden. It was right there, all along. Take a look.
MASSIVE SPOILERS! SCROLL ON DOWN!
That’s John Marston and his old bandit buddies Dutch and Bill, who you, the player (as Marston) has to hunt down and kill so you can get your family back.
Personally, I’m thrilled to be back in the graces of John Marston and his stern-but-fair ways. Granted, these guys were bad, bad men as part of Dutch’s Gang, and only Marston’s redemptive journey made him seem like a decent guy in RDR, so there’s a good chance we’re going to be doing some nasty deeds in RDR 2. This could also back up the theory that we’ll be playing multiple characters in this prequel that is a numbered sequel, like in Grand Theft Auto V.
Will someone in the comment section invent a time machine so we can get to the release of this game already? Oh, and let’s all brace ourselves for the inevitable Rockstar Delay™.
