The release date of "Red Dead Redemption 2" has been revealed which will be on the fourth quarter of the year. But before the launching, gamers can have a sneak peek of the forthcoming video game at the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) which will be held in June at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California.

The release of the "Red Dead Redemption" in 2010 was considered a success for its publisher Rockstar Games. Many fans from all over the world are now anticipating for the new installment of the "Red Dead" series.

In a statement, Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take-Two Interactive which is the parent company of Rockstar Games confirmed that a sequel of Red Dead Redemption is already at work. He also stated that the video game series will become a permanent franchise.

"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," Zelnick stated.

In terms of setting, theories have circulated on the web stating that the video game will have its setting in Japan. This is quite strange since the game is primarily focused on the Western area. Other reports also stated that more states in the U.S. will be added into the new game which include Utah, Arizona, Denver, New Mexico, Texas, Mexico, South Dakota and Louisiana.

The developer of the upcoming title has not yet confirmed any of the rumors. Little information about the game has also been provided.

"Red Dead Redemption 2" will be available on different platforms such as the Xbox One, PS4 and PC this coming Oct. 2016.
