    Throwing anyone for a loop? I'm really not sure what to make of it. Prequel? Another story line completely? I think that it's one of those two routs based purely on the time frame of the last game being set in 1911 i believe (the "wild" west sort of "died off" around then). Thoughts??

    I really felt they'd go against the trend of numbering their games, but this is just how it's going to be. RDR was the modern hit and so they stuck to RDR and it is the 2nd RDR. I friggin kept telling everyone it's Red Dead 3! RED DEAD 3! Rockstar is like nope it's RDR2.

    If it was a prequel/sequel or all new characters, Red Dead New Title Here would’ve worked either way. But RDR2 kinda makes me think there will be continuity.

    i don't mind it. prequel or not. It will probably follow a lot of similar characters and naming it Red Dead Redemption 2 makes a lot of sense for that. I'm just so happy!

    Some people are speculating that it has to be a prequel, due to the fact that there are buffalo in the trailer. If you remember, they made mention in the original RDR that the buffalo had been hunted to almost extinction. I think there was a trophy for killing them all if I recall correctly. Thoughts?

    Its for sure a prequel which is so awsome to get a view of the gang before.

    A lot of threads on Reddit seem to think it will be a completely different story line altogether. Some say it will take place in California around the 49 gold rush. If you all haven't checked the reddit threads, do so. They are great!! Let me know what you all think!!
