Yesterday morning, the Rockstar Games Twitter account released the following image ...
... and Twitter went frigging bananas.
If you're not familiar with the company, its various franchises, or the rumors that have been circulating for months now, that red square probably isn't setting your world on fire. But for those of us who sunk hundreds of hours into Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption back in 2010 - and have been clamoring for a sequel ever since - that simple image was absolutely reason to celebrate: it seems to be teasing a new Red Dead game.
And so, all day yesterday, the conversation revolved around what, precisely, Rockstar might be teasing. Could be the long-awaited follow-up to Red Dead Redemption ... but it could also be a tease for a remastered Red Dead Redemption.
Then, this morning, Rockstar Tweeted out this image:
And here we are, still talking about what it all means. Given the rumblings I've heard and the screenshots which have leaked over the past year or so (nothing confirmed as legit, mind you, but still fairly convincing) and the fact that Rockstar is juuust about due to announce their next project (going by past production cycles), I think the safe money's on a new Red Dead game rather than a remaster. But what do you guys think?
And also: how exciting is this? I'm losing my mind over here.
