“Red Dead Redemption 2” has been on the table for a while now, but developer Rockstar Games has not announced an official release date yet. Further details of the highly anticipated title are expected to be shared at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

E3 2017 is still months away, but several developers and publishers have already confirmed their attendance. Likewise, the event’s official website has already listed down those who are sure to take part in the expo in one way or another. Listed among the participants is Take-Two Interactive, the owner of Rockstar Games.

It is then possible that an announcement will be made regarding “Red Dead Redemption 2.” As Gaming Bolt has reported, any details whether big or small will help at this point, whether it is to keep audiences interested or to appease awaiting fans. However, the publication has also noted that the game developer has a history of keeping its bigger releases way from E3 and other such shows.

Nothing has been officially announced yet, other than that Take-Two will be present in the event. It is possible that the space will be used by another company under it, such as 2K Games. At this point, Rockstar Games might not even make an appearance at all. Perhaps the game developer will host an entirely separate event to reveal the tightly kept secrets of the Western sequel.

The only detail that is sure is that “Red Dead Redemption 2” will be released sometime in the last quarter of 2017. The title has been confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although there are rumours circulating that the game will also be available for PC gamers.

The original title was released in 2010 and followed the story of John Marston, an outlaw that was seeking redemption. It is played in third-person and is set in an open world environment that allows players to interact with their surroundings. In the beginning of the game, Marston is taken away from his family by the Bureau of Investigation. The agency tells him that he will be granted amnesty if he helps track down Bill Williamson, who runs the gang that Marson used to be part of.

Many speculate that “Red Dead Redemption 2” will be a prequel to the original title, but Rockstar Games has not denied or confirmed this. E3 2017 will kick off on June 13 and will finish on June 15.
