By Steff

There have been hints after hints, leaks after leaks suggesting that 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will be released next year. However the most promising one is coming from Rockstar's parent company 'Take-Two Interactive'.  Rumored storyline for 'RDR 2' includes two new characters and a new customizable character.

Here's the latest on Red Dead Redemption 2 release date, news, and updates.

Previously Feinstein (Rockstar Games Senior Developer) told Express they are indeed working on 'Red Dead Redemption 2'. However Feinstein didn't share much about the game, in terms of spoilers, news, or even the title of the second leg of 'Red Dead Redemption'.

However a Reddit user by the name of AnonDN1978, has revealed that Rockstar has actually been working on the title for years now, which will called 'Red Dead Redemption 2: Legends of the West'.

AnonDN1978 also revealed some crucial information for the upcoming game, including its characters-sorry, John Marston is not coming back.

When it comes to the set of the upcoming 'Red Dead Redemption 2', the game will be 12 years prior to the first 'Red Dead Redemption'.

The main characters for the upcoming game are Irish and Seth, and one customizable character. Irish grew up in Ireland (the Irish name is not so creative huh?) and on his 21st birthday he ends up in America, whilst Seth grew up in Kansas City. Seth works in a bank but he wants his own treasure, the goal of the two main character is practically to look for the hidden treasure. Both characters will meet in Tumbleweed, Texas.

The third character is going to be your own creation, someone you can use during gang mode-oh yah, 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will have a multiplayer game mode which is much like a gang mode.

The customized character will be available as a gun for hire of sorts.

Since the game is said to be going through development for 3 and ½ years, it is safe to say that Rockstar might surprise us with the unveiling of 'Red Dead Redemption 2' will happen next year

Also the most recent financial results announcement of Take-Two Interactive reveals of an unannounced AAA game to be released before the end of March 31, 2016. Whilst fans are it would be the 'Mafia 3' most rumors seem to point out that this would be the upcoming 'Red Dead Redemption 2'.

Take-Two Interactive is the owner of Rockstar-the developer of Red Dead Redemption.

Take-Two Interactive also added, "Throughout the coming year, we will continue to execute our proven strategy of launching a select array of the highest-quality titles, led by new annual releases of NBA 2K and WWE 2K; Battleborn, a groundbreaking new intellectual property from Gearbox Software; and a soon-to-be announced new triple-A title from 2K. 

"We also will continue to deliver innovative offerings designed to promote ongoing engagement with our games and drive recurrent consumer spending. Beyond fiscal 2016, we have a robust development pipeline and our Company is well-positioned to deliver growth and margin expansion over the long-term."

Recently, Strauss Zelnick (CEO of Rockstar) also told VG247.com that they only launch one franchise per year, "We've launched one new successful franchise every year and I would like to keep doing that particularly because I talk about permanent franchises, but not everything is going to be a permanent franchise."

Despite the fact that game don't necessarily equate to franchise, Zelnick says the Red Dead Redemption is one, "I pretty much know the ones that I can assure you are permanent. It's obvious that 'GTA' is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that 'Red Dead' is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or 'Borderlands,' for example, and 'NBA' and others."
