The rumor mill was running at full speed during the time of Sony’s E3 conference. Many believing that the heavily rumoured Red Dead Redemption 2 was meant to close Sony’s conference with an astronomical bang. However in respect for those who had so recently past away in the Orlando shootings, the apparently overly violent announcement was removed from Sony’s presentation and replaced by the Days Gone gameplay demo.
Since then many have wondered, that if true, how long Rockstar would wait to reattempt an announcement. Well sit down and buckle up folks. Because the Rumor mill is in full swing once more. On September 7th at the Playstation Theatre in New York City Sony is holding a special event. It seems more than likely that at said event the next edition to the Playstation family, the Playstation Neo, will be officially revealed. Sony has been elusive about the content of this conference however once again the idea has begun to gestate that this might be the place to announce Red Dead Redemption 2. A Rockstar title alongside new Sony hardware would be a masterfully crafted move to drive interest. And there are still the whispers that Rockstar is in debt to Sony, one exclusive, after the elusive title Agent went quiet.
At this point most of this is speculation, without the backing of solid facts. However people are talking, and I personally like the idea of learning about another Red Dead sooner rather than later. So on September 7th we’ll all have to cross our fingers.
