Red Dead Redemption II is an upcoming western action-adventure video game developed and published by Rockstar Games for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 2018. The game is a prequel to the 2010 title Red Dead Redemption and will be the third entry in the Red Dead series. It follows outlaw Arthur Morgan, a member of the Dutch van der Linde gang.
Rockstar Games announced the game in October 2016. In the two days prior, the company had used various social media platforms as well as their own website to release two teaser images in the color and theme of Red Dead Redemption. The teaser images led to considerable attention and raised the stock price of its distributor Take-Two Interactive nearly six percent. On the day of its announcement for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, some fans started petitioning Rockstar for the game to be made available on Microsoft Windows as well. Per an exclusivity agreement with Sony Interactive Entertainment, certain online game content will be timed exclusives for the PlayStation 4. In May 2017, Rockstar announced that the game’s release had been delayed from its initial release window of the second half of 2017 to the second quarter of 2018.
