The Biggest PS4 Games to Play in 2017
By GameSpot Staff on
Red Dead Redemption 2
Yes, it's really happening: Rockstar's 2010 open world western will have a sequel by the end of 2017. Unfortunately, we currently know almost nothing beyond some big picture bullet points. For example, it's still an open-world game set in an expansive swath of the American south and the northern portions of Mexico. There's also a multiplayer component that will complement the story-driven single-player campaign.
The rest is up for speculation. The game may take place after the original Red Dead Redemption and star protagonist John Marston's son Jack--along with six other gunslingers, judging by the game's Magnificent 7-inspired key art. Then again, it might be a prequel. Or an entirely unrelated story. Regardless, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick promises Red Dead 2 will offer "incredible emotional depth," as well as a "big, sprawling, optimistic view of America."
Developer Rockstar generally plays it close to the chest but always seems to have an ace up its sleeve. Expect to learn more about this one as we get closer to release.
