Red Dead Redemption 2 Official Trailer Coming This May 2nd

While Red Dead Redemption 2 is set for a Q4 release date, that isn’t stopping Rockstar Games from starting up the hype train. As such, they dropped a little notice on Twitter this morning, announcing that the official trailer for the game will be released this week. May 2, 2018, at 11 AM EDT, to be exact.


I’d be lying if said that this wasn’t perhaps the most eagerly awaited title for many gamers. There’s a whole lot of gamers out there who have been begging and pleading to Rockstar Games to release a follow-up to the classic western title. And now, they’re finally getting it. This time the game will follow the protagonist, Arthur Morgan. A complete opposite of John Marston from’s from Red Dead Redemption.

Arthur is from the other side of the tracks, looking to make a name for himself the only way he knows how. Things like breaking the law, causing trouble and who knows what else. Hopefully, we’ll find out a bit more once the new trailer drops.

If you haven’t checked out the first game, it’s pretty cheap right now. If you happen to have an Xbox One X, you can now play the title via backward compatibility and it looks amazing. Just a suggestion while you’re waiting for part 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 releases worldwide on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems as of October 26, 2018. No word if a PC version is in the works or not. But I pray to the Rockstar Games God that there is.

Are you excited for the trailer? Let us know in the comments!
